THE controversial Deoxyribo-nucleic Acid (DNA) Identifica-tion Bill was nearly thrown out at the committee stage in the Dewan Rakyat on Mon-day. It only managed to scrape through with one majority, the smallest margin recorded in history.

The verdict was decided through the bloc division voting, with 48 votes from the Barisan Nasional MPs vs 47 from Opposition MPs.
