You may be interviewed in a criminal case as a suspect or witness. Your business can also be designated as a suspect. In that case you as the manager or director may also be interviewed. The interview can be carried out by the police or by the investigating magistrate. Your rights and obligations will vary depending on the situation that applies to you. For example, in principle you are not obliged to attend a police interview as a witness, but you are required to appear before the investigating magistrate. Furthermore, as a suspect you are not obliged to answer questions while you are (usually) obliged to do so as a witness.

Whether you are a suspect, a director or a witness, we can assist you as your attorney during the interview.
