I know a similar question has been answered before with experts stating 3rd party affidavit is not required for obtaining copies of case where order has veen passed.
I am asking again because a few advocates are insisting I need to provide a 3rd party affidavit to obtain copies of cases disposed in 2020 and 2021.
My understanding is that once order is passed the entire case proceeding is public (evidence, cross examination etc) and |I don't need to provide any reason to access it. Is that correct?
I am just obtaining copies to see what happened in those cases and hence |I really don't want to furnish an affidavit with such a frivolous reason. I would like to avoid providing an affidavit and just access it as a public record.
I know in the past experts have said you don't need an affidavit but since advocates I spoke to insisted on providing an affidavit I am asking again.
Also,will it help if I state in my application that since the case is disposed, it is a public record and I am applying for the same -or something like that so that the registrar wont raise an objection?
