Right to Silence – Inferences Drawn

Comment 8th July 2010

Remove the allowance of inferences drawn from a person's silence.

Why does this matter?

In having to provide proof of something upon which to rely in court to the Police, it provides the opportunity for that proof to be 'lost', 'damaged' or destroyed. Mention of the location or specifics of such proof should only be required  in court.

Belief that such proof, should it be the linchpin of a defence, will in all cases, be righly acted upon is naive.
