Your right to remain silent isn't a right
The owners of cars caught by speed cameras can be prosecuted if they fail to tell police who was driving at the time, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has ruled.
Judges in Strasbourg heard the cases of the two men last September and gave their verdict today.
Mr Francis said after the verdict: “The fight for freedom goes on. We can’t allow the tyrants, who are taking away our rights, to succeed. They have to be stopped.”
The two motorists lost their case because the human rights judges threw out their claim that the right to remain silent and the right not to incriminate oneself are “absolute rights”.
The judges also disagreed that human rights were breached by direct compulsion requiring an accused person to make incriminatory statements against his or her will.
