    Children’s Commissioner calls for national debate on silence laws

    Children’s Commissioner Andrew Becroft says that his views regarding the right to silence have been simplified. Becroft clarified to Te Ao Māori News that he still upholds the right to silence for those accused. In regards to his recent interview with Duncan Garner, Becroft says: “What I thought that I said when asked if witnesses should be able to just stonewall and remain silent, was that we should consider and debate whether the right to silence for those witnesses should be abolished or amended.” What Becroft did want, he says, is a national conversation on how this fundamental right is applied in child abuse investigations. Becroft says that he wants a discussion on whether the laws are ‘fit for purpose’, not the abolition of a 400 year old democratic right. “We should seriously debate whether the right to silence for witnesses and those who saw what’s going on or know part of the puzzle whether they should be obliged to answer relevant piece questions.”
