As a result of scientific development and the latest
methods of detecting and tracking criminals, debate has been
raised over the legality of these scientific means due to their
infringement on personal freedoms and the inviolability of
private life. Due to this, the Algerian legislator has amended
the Penal Code in accordance with Law 06-03 of 20 December
2006 and its text on the inviolability of private life in article
303. And as a result of developments all over the world, the
Algerian constitutional founder has included a legal clause
protecting this right in the constitutional amendment of 2016.
The legislator is currently seeking the enactment of Law 18-
07 on the protection of natural persons in the handling of
their data.
The right to privacy is linked to the freedom and dignity
of people, and taking in to account the seriousness of medical
experiments, DNA, and images in order to detect criminals,
the extent of the violation of this right has made us address
this subject.
So the question arises: What controls the protection of
the right to privacy when using modern scientific means to
prove guilt?
