# Lying under arrest

I'm in a custody, under arrest, no contact with the outside world.

I do not know if in that jurisdiction authorities are allowed to lie.

Some real-world knowledge suggest lying by authorities is common: https://www.innocenceproject.org/prevalence-police-lying/

Is there a question (or series of questions) that would allow me to establish whether they are allowed to lie to me?

• Without any clear rules about lying (or telling the truth), it is impossible to answer this question as it stands. Does lying need to be consistent, for example? – Lee Leon May 6 '19 at 10:51
• I've seen a movie recently and I wanted to learn how to behave... Preferably I will stay away from legal trouble and even if, then: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miranda_warning – Mars Robertson May 6 '19 at 12:01
• Has a correct answer been given? If so, please don't forget to $\color{green}{\checkmark \small\text{Accept}}$ it :) – Rubio May 8 '19 at 20:17
• I don't know what is the correct answer, I don't know if there is a correct answer. Maybe there is a phrase: "what would be the correct answer if you were allowed to lie assuming you are not lying now"? MAYBE... Hard to tell. – Mars Robertson May 8 '19 at 20:44
