As a witness attending a coercive hearing, you have the right to legal representation and to an interpreter if you need one. However, you cannot, without a reasonable excuse, refuse to:

  • answer questions
  • produce documents and/or other materials when requested
  • take an oath.

For CCC hearings, witnesses may also apply to the Attorney-General for financial help in order to obtain legal assistance.
