Some of the decisions of the ICTR deal with the fundamental issue of the rights of suspects when interrogated by the inquiring authorities (police and prosecutor). In particular, there are three issues examined by ICTR Trial Chambers. The first concerns the moment from when a person must be considered and treated as suspect . The second deals with the notices that a suspect is entitled to receive, before the beginning of police or prosecutor interrogation. The third relates to the form in which police and prosecutor must report the operations conducted during the questioning or interrogation. Must they be reported in a written formal way (the French call this a “procès verbal”, an official police or prosecutor record), or are other forms allowed (for example, the testimony of the police officer who conducted, or attended to the questioning)?

Abstract

Some of the decisions of the ICTR deal with the fundamental issue of the rights of suspects when interrogated by the inquiring authorities (police and prosecutor). In particular, there are three issues examined by ICTR Trial Chambers. The first concerns the moment from when a person must be considered and treated as suspect . The second deals with the notices that a suspect is entitled to receive, before the beginning of police or prosecutor interrogation. The third relates to the form in which police and prosecutor must report the operations conducted during the questioning or interrogation. Must they be reported in a written formal way (the French call this a “procès verbal”, an official police or prosecutor record), or are other forms allowed (for example, the testimony of the police officer who conducted, or attended to the questioning)?
