At the police station
The police person compiles a report in which they must determine the exact hour of detention and the reason for the detention. You are required to provide: name, surname, date of birth and data about your profession (eg laborer, clerk, student, unemployed). Claim your right to contact a lawyer! In your case, an attorney or lawyer will be provided by the anti-rep group, so call our number! A police officer will ask you if you bring a complaint to the court about detention. Say that you do want to bring it (remember, you do not have to do it at the police station, you have 7 days for it). The form that is provided is information about the reason for detention, with which you definitely disagree, refuse to sign it. The signature refusal may, however, result in a refusal to contact a lawyer.
If you sign anything, make sure that there is no information regarding your admission of guilt or other documents! Always read exactly what you're signing! Request a copy of the form. Do not say anything after receiving it.
Refuse to testify - you have the right to do so.
If you have allegations from the Penal Code, enter your real home address. The police often check the address you provided. In the report of the interrogation, provide a current address for mail, one where you actually check the correspondence.
It is possible that the police will want to take you away and interrogate you as a witness who does not have the right to refuse to testify, but according to art. 183 section 1 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, you can avoid answering a question if responding could expose you or your immediate family to criminal liability. You have the right to notify your family and/or your lawyer,
At the end of the leaflet there is a phone number to the attorney - say that you want to notify them. If the police refuse - insist, do not give up, threaten to lodge an official complaint. You have the right to a phone call to a lawyer (and not just one phone call - a missed call is not the end of the story).
You might remain in the cell until the investigator wants to interrogate you (to record the interrogation report or official note). Refuse to testify! Do not sign anything anymore! You will discuss defense tactics later with your lawyer. Usually the detention lasts about 2-6 hours. It cannot exceed 48 hours. The condition for a longer detention is a formal charge.
If you are a victim of police violence, you have the right to request an immediate examination by a doctor and issue a forensic examination (it is paid, and very important proof!). After release, you must immediately visit another doctor and re-perform a forensic examination (at any time of the day and night in emergency medical facilities, in the Department of Forensic Medicine, but also in a hospital, admission room) or even get an information card with a description of the injuries from the ambulance, hospital or surgeon. The document you get is a proof of crime recognized in court, otherwise you will not have any arguments in your defense.
