The House committee on science and technology chaired by Rep. Erico Aristotle Aumentado created a technical working group (TWG) to be chaired by Rep. Ma. Lucille Nava which will consolidate all comments, suggestions and position papers related to House Bill 4690 or the proposed “DNA Capacity Enhancement Act”. Rep. Mario Vittorio Mariño, (left) author of the measure, explained the need for improving the DNA (deoxrybonucleic acid) facilities in the country to answer the increasing demand for DNA analysis for identity testing in mass fatalities, casework and research. Present were Reps. Josehine Ramirez-Sato, Ron Salo, Carlito Marquez, Mark Aeron Sambar, Gary Alejano, John Marvin Nieto and representatives from the PNP CIDG (Philippine National Police- Criminal Investigation and Detection Group) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
