Interviews under caution
An interview under caution begins with the caution being read to the person being interviewed. It gives the warning that anything said in interview can be admitted as evidence if the matter goes to court and an adverse inference can be drawn if the person decides to exercise their right to silence.
If you are arrested and interviewed in custody or asked to attend a voluntary interview, the same weight is given to your answers or lack of them in the interview. You are entitled to have a solicitor in your interview either in custody or by a voluntary attendance. We will speak to the officer before the interview and be given pre-interview disclosure. We will go through this information with you in a private and confidential setting, to help prepare you for the interview and advise you on the best course of action. We will be with you in the interview to safeguard your interests. Making the right decision in interview whether to answer questions, read a prepared statement or answer no comment, can be crucial to your case. Our criminal team can guide you through the process and are always on hand to answer questions after the interview.
