Islamabad, June 26(ANI): Despite repeated claims by Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik that all possible counter terrorism measures are being taken by authorities, the government is yet to formulate a consolidated databank on terrorists.
The issue was discussed at a recent meeting of civilian and military law-enforcement agencies, especially those working on terrorism, and they agreed to rope in the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) to create and maintain such a databank on a fast-track basis.
DNA databanks are premised on statistics indicating that individuals convicted of a serious violent offense often commit other violent offenses that leave behind incriminating DNA.
More than half of all states authorize inclusion of DNA profiles collected from juveniles in their databanks. In contrast to the convention of sealing or erasing juvenile criminal records after a period of time--a practice grounded on a rehabilitative ideal--none of the statutes require states to remove juvenile DNA profiles from their databanks, and one (Arizona's) expressly prohibits their removal.
Updated versions of such resin-supplier databanks will debut at the NPE show in Chicago this month.
With these data (obtained from PLASTICS TECHNOLOGY's PLASPEC databank), General Polymers can help customers find materials within its product portfolio that can substitute for resins that may be unavailable on short notice from another source, for example.
