    International use of Miranda

    I was watching one of the cop shows the other day and saw Australian LEOs giving a Miranda-style warning, which led me to wonder, how many nations use them, since the concept originated with the SCOTUS and the US Constitution?

    Well, its been here awhile. To my knowledge, none. Britain, and many countries in Europe have similar "civil liberty statements", but it will depend heavily on who is detaining you and for what. Many nations use gendarmes/mil-state police, and they frequently have greater powers of detention, without access to council being requisite. Realistically, you can list maybe a dozen countries with "guaranteed" civil rights, all others, you have what you can buy. Folks with direct overseas experience, please feel free to correct me. This is my general impression from being a history buff, and having 3 friends with a great deal of southern and eastern international time.

    Miranda Rights

    The Miranda Rights clause came from a US Supreme Court case in which a person arrested has certain protections during the arrest and before/during interrogation. It is a US law. Although as stated some foreign countries have adopted a SOMEWHAT similar system.
