Police lab will do forensic DNA testing

The soon to be completed police forensic laboratory at the University of Guyana Turkeyen Campus will definitely have the capabilities to do DNA testing for forensic purposes.
This was disclosed by Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee, who told the media that the administration has obtained the commitment of two specialists to train local scientists in the process.
There was discussion on the capacity of the local facility to conduct DNA testing for forensic science.
Over the years Guyana has had to rely on overseas laboratories for this purpose, which often led to confusion and delays.
