Reference Entry
An encyclopedia entry for Anunga rules is presented. This refers to guidelines for the interrogation of Aboriginal people by police in the Northern Territory (NT). Many Aboriginal people face particular hardships in the legal system, specifically in the context of interrogation. These guidelines recommended that a prisoner's friend be present during interrogation, and where necessary an interpreter, and that care should be taken in administering the caution and in formulating questions.
