Police should not be able to orchestrate a situation where Australians are charged and executed overseas, CLA says in asking Parliament to revisit stricter guidelines for the AFP.With nearly three-quarters of people wholly susceptible to the implanting of false memories, courts should be much more wary of accepting “unearthed recollections”, CLA says. There is also a grave danger that police interviewing techniques can be skewed to implant false “facts” in someone’s head.
