How to Write a Police Statement in Ghana
You should be prepared for an interview if you are asked to give a statement by police if you have been arrested. The police will ask you questions, but you have the right to refuse to answer them if you believe you are innocent. It is important to remember that the prosecution has the burden of proof, not the police.
A police officer might ask you to make a written or video recording statement. This statement could be used as evidence in court. Most cases will have police asking you questions to find out what happened. They may ask you to make the statement at the police station or at home. It is important to understand that the police are sensitive to the fact that it may be difficult for you to talk about what happened. If you are uncomfortable talking, feel free to take a break if needed.
