The judges were ruling in three separate cases in which suspects had asked in mid-interrogation to speak to their lawyers again. They said that suspects should be allowed to consult again with a lawyer only if something happens in the interrogation room to change their situation dramatically.Remind me not to get arrested in Canada. We already know that people will confess after long hours of interrogation, but this does not produce justice. Well, that is if justice means getting the right person as opposed to getting just anyone.
I look forward to my more legally-educated colleagues to rant about this decision, as I am no expert on the law. But I think I am in good company in thinking that this ruling stinks.
