Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section G. Examination of witnesses
New Zealand’s Military Manual (1992) states that in order to defend himself, the accused internee “shall be permitted, in particular, to call witnesses”.
The manual further provides: “Anyone charged with an offence shall have the right to examine, or have examined, the witnesses against him and to obtain the attendance and examination of witnesses on his behalf under the same conditions as witnesses against him.”
The manual also states: “Accused persons have the right to present evidence necessary to their defence and may, in particular, call witnesses.”
