730 New South Wales investigates changes to the Right to Silence

ABC 730 | 19 August 2012

See Quentin Dempster's piece "O'Farrell Government overhauls 'right to silence'" here, including O'Farrell's announcement, and interviews with Phillip Boulten SC and Evan Whitton.

And then see Dempster's interview with Attorney-General Greg Smith here.

Smith says the modification will not apply to certain categories of accused, or to people who have not had access to legal advice. He says duty lawyers will not be provided to Police stations, but does hint at a phone advice service being made available.
