Do I still have a right to silence in Jersey?

Jersey still retains the right to silence. In simple terms, that means that you are able to give “No comment” answers, without it being the subject of a negative inference at trial

I have been asked to go to the police question voluntarily to answer questions, do I have to go?

The short answer is no, you don’t have to go, but if you don’t go, you may well be arrested. This is not a certainty and it depends on the facts of each case and whether the police are able to arrest you. (The police are entitled to arrest you if they have reasonable cause to suspect you of committing an offence, having committed an offence, or being about to commit an offence).
