Abstract

To empower the "right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law", Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights identifies a range of "minimum guarantees" for suspects under investigation and for the accused at trial. Significant among these is that the suspect/accused is "not to be compelled to testify against himself or to confess guilt".
