Law Soc: Introduction of Video-recording of Interviews

Law Society

Introduction of Video-recording of Interviews ('VRI')

On 28 February 2018, the Ministry of Law will table in Parliament wide-ranging amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code and Evidence Act. The proposed amendments include the introduction of video-recording of interviews ('VRI'). This will assist the Courts to try cases more effectively by taking into account the interviewee's demeanour, and providing an objective contemporaneous account of the interview.

For more information on VRI and its implementation, please refer to this video.
