Questioning and statements

As a general rule, in the absence of good reason, a person should not make any statement or admission about any offence to police or to any other person without proper legal advice.

In the majority of cases, the material that convicts people is the evidence of their own admissions to police.

There will be times, however, when it will be in the interests of the accused to answer questions or make a statement. For example, if a client instructs a lawyer that in a case of theft the accused had the consent of the owner (except in the case of a motor vehicle, boat or aircraft) or had no intent to deprive the owner permanently, then the police should be told.
