RIGHTS

The Saturday Paper - - Contents - – Philip Rud­dock

“I would also like [the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Com­mit­tee] to con­sider whether amend­ments should be made to a sus­pect’s right to re­main silent.”

Other doc­u­ments ob­tained by the ABC show the for­mer at­tor­neygen­eral sug­gested re­mov­ing the right to si­lence. Rud­dock made the sug­ges­tion while Mo­hamed Ha­neef was be­ing held with­out charge, and, pre­sum­ably, while wear­ing his Amnesty pin.
