It is commonly used in investigations to question individuals who may have knowledge or involvement in a particular matter. By conducting an interrogation, investigators aim to gather evidence, assess the credibility of the subject, and establish their level of responsibility or involvement in the case. Therefore, the statement that the purpose of an interrogation is to gather and test the validity of the belief that the subject is responsible or involved in the matter under investigation is true.

    Explanation
    Timing is important because it ensures that witnesses' stories are not affected by memory loss or the influence of others.
