留置室のドアの内側に張ってあったビラを書き写してきました．読めば拘留された気分が味わえるかも・・・．最後の，INDEPENDENT CUSTODY VISITING SCHEME に相当する制度は日本にもあるのでしょうか？

NOTES FOR THE GUIDANCE OF ACCUSED PERSONS.
You will be provided with three meals per day. Drinking water will be supplied to you on request.
Writing Materials will be supplied to you on request and letter, which should be in unsealed envelopes, will be sent with the least possible delay.
COMMUNICATIONS AND FRIEND:
If you so desire, a message will be sent to a relative or friend. If you are of foreign nationality you may send a message to the Counsular Officer of your country.
COMMUNICATION WITH LAW AGENT:
If you so desire, intimation will be sent to your law agent, with whom you will be allowed a private interview prior to your appearance in Court. If you wish to call witnesses for your defence in Court and have difficulty in arranging this, reasonable facilities for helping you will be given. You are not obliged to make a statement to the charge against you, but if you desire to do so you can inform the Officer in Duty. You are entitled to have the benefit of legal advice before such a statement is made and any such statement will be taken down and may be used in evidence.
If you require the service of a doctor you should ask for one to be called. You will then be seen by a Police Doctor.
If your case is one in which interim liberation can be granted, the Officer in Charge of the police station will advice you as to the procedure. If you are not granted interim liberation you will be informed of the reason why.
On occasion when a cell is occupied by three or more persons, should you so require, you will be permitted to the use of private toilet facilities.
INDEPENDENT CUSTODY VISITING SCHEME:
Independent Custody Visitors are members of the public who make unannounced visits to selected Police Officers to check on the treatment of detained people and find if their rights have been explained and granted. You may be asked if you agree to interview with the Independent Custody Visitor. If asked, it will be your choice whether you wish to see them.
If you do not understand any of the above Notes, the Officer on Duty will explain them to you.
