Right to legal aid throughout interrogations or arrest comes into effect
The right to legal aid throughout interrogations or when placed under arrest has come into effect as of today, a press release issued by the Justice Ministry said yesterday.
In addition to this, a number of other rights have also come into effect for persons who are under investigation.
In the press release, it said that such rights have been the norm for a number of years in other advanced countries.
“In this way, we will have a criminal justice system that is trustworthy and that ensures no person will be found guilty in dubious circumstances where there could be reason to doubt whether justice was served or not.”
