Formal Guide to Questioning Witnesses and the Accused, With Flash Cards for Questioning

  • This formal guide serves as a tool for questioning adult witnesses and accused persons. The utilisation of this framework follows the standard procedure of questioning and is underpinned by a purpose-built set of flash cards. Starting with concrete sample phrasings for informing the person of their rights, tried-and-tested questions and queries follow and lead through the questioning like the central theme. In addition, you will find supplementary explanations for each flash card. This technique enables law-enforcement professionals to obtain comprehensive statements of high quality from individuals willing to testify, which in turn permits a subsequent evaluation of truthfulness of statements to be conducted. The entire technique of questioning is geared towards the most recent scientific consensus. We selected the flash card format in order to allow police officers, for instance, to be able to conduct a questioning at any time and in whichever context. The specified structure contributes to ensuring that the general legislative framework is upheld and that we achieve statements that are considered solid in court. The final section addresses FAQs about this questioning technique, as well as references to further reading for those wishing to delve deeper.
