Global DNA hits back

A CELEBRITY paternity DNA tests company intends to sue the Medical Laboratory and Clinical Scientists Council of Zimbabwe (MLCSCZ) for defamation after the latter issued a statement saying the former was an ‘off-stage’ operation.
MLCSCZ is the regulator manning the operations of registered DNA testing by medical and clinical laboratory scientists.
The regulator explicitly stated it was unethical to publicise DNA paternity results unless compelled by Law fingering Global DNA Zimbabwe and Expediate DNA Testing in the habit of airing such confidential results.
Reacting to the regulator’s exposé, Global DNA said they are a bonafide firm operating within the legal parameters of Zimbabwean law.

“We urge the general public to disregard the false news in circulation concerning our operations being banned. In the interim Global DNA also would like to dispel the rumors that we have been banned from operation. We received communication from the Council dated 17 September 2021 and we are in communication with the Council to provide the necessary documentation they have since requested.
“We also would like to highlight that at the time of issue of the press release, there was no prior communication or consultation with the Global DNA team and we strongly believe this issue would have been resolved without causing unnecessary alarm within the general public,” said the company.
The company said it is seeking legal redress.

“We also would like to take this time to reassure all our clients of the legality and accuracy of obtained DNA results.
“As such, we would like to notify our stakeholders that we are seeking legal recourse and we will issue a detailed press statement in due course,” said Global DNA.
