    I doubt this is the case anywhere. It's not like it's up to the court to solve the riddle of your testimony as a defendant. It's on you to tell the truth.

    Don't they make you "swear to tell the...

    Yeah that sounds about right.

    What about if you're a defendant in UK criminal court? Can you forced to answer questions even if your lawyer would prefer you not to speak at all?

    Don't know for sure but I think that only applies if you're a witness, not a defendant. The defendant in a (USA) trial can choose to either testify or not. If they do, they have to answer all...

    Seems like an odd time to choose to misbehave, while someone's pointing a camera at you. If they're willing to act like that while being filmed, it makes me wonder what they do when they think...

    I think the right to remain silent is subtly different between the US and UK.

    Here, you do have the option to remain silent, but if you do then choosing not to talk can be held as mitigating...
