Furthermore, it is really complicated, especially in emergencies, to measure the exact weight of the detainee’s confession. There are numerous questions posed to deal with, such as whether the suspect is the real wrongdoer, how many percentages of required information he or she possesses and the most difficult one: how to distinguish between honesty and lies.
