Q. When exiting shul after davening on Shabbos we witnessed a severe car accident in front of the shul and a victim died. Police arrived immediately and began asking questions from the standby witnesses, writing their names, what they saw and where they could be contacted. They wrote the answers. Was it permitted for us to answer, when the officers were writing the answers during Shabbos?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is permitted, since you are not telling them to write the answers and they are doing it for themselves and for their own benefit.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
