Opinions on making giving DNA samples compulsory in the Netherlands 2018

This statistic displays the opinions on making giving DNA samples compulsory in the Netherlands in 2018. In August 2018, a breakthrough in a long unsolved crime case, the murder of 11-year old Nicky Verstappen, was reached following a successful DNA match. The suspect had ignored several appeals to give his DNA over the years. Earlier the murder of Marianne Vaatstra was solved in the same way.
When asked whether giving DNA samples should be made compulsory, only 30 percent of the respondents stated that they think it should remain voluntarily.

In your opinion, should giving DNA samples for a specific crime become compulsory, or should it remain voluntarily?*
