Admissibility of evidence


Is the print out of information available on government websites (i.e. the information in public domain) admissible as evidence in a criminal case.

Or does that information still requires to be certified by the government authority before it being admissible as evidence in court.

What if the print out of the information is submitted as such along with the link of that information (web site link) to the court to verify its authenticity.

I would say that has to be dependent on the magnitude of the facts of the case ...since thisis a criminal case .... issue has to be proven beyond reasonable print outs alone are not suffcient .. something else needs to be taken .. certified copies would  do ..
With the web site the court might accept but it wouldnt base its judgement heavily on that soformer way is better
