Abstract

Through our daily work, SCALES witnesses the impact of legislative amendments such as the ones proposed. There are many difficulties with the proposed Criminal Investigation Amendment Bill; however the three main issues that we would like to deal with in this submission are:

1. They breach human rights; specifically the right to privacy and freedom from degrading treatment;
2. They have an increased negative impact on vulnerable groups;
3. They have already been proven to be a failure in other jurisdictions; such as the UK.
