I AM FOR THE PEITIONER. CROSS OF PETITIONER IS FINISHED. EVIDENCE OF PEITIONER IS CLOSED. CROSS OF RESPONDENT IS GOING ON. I WANT TO PRODUCE CERTIFIED COPIES OF CHIEF AND CROSS OF THE RESPONDENT OF PREVIOUS CASE. WILL IT BE ADMISSIBLE AT THIS STAGE?
The query according to me is this: I WANT TO PRODUCE CERTIFIED COPIES OF CHIEF AND CROSS OF THE RESPONDENT OF PREVIOUS CASE. WILL IT BE ADMISSIBLE AT THIS STAGE?
These can be used for confronting in cross-examination respondent without a doubt and after witness admits the facts, documents can be marked. The law is not that rigid, and documents can be filed after convincing the court for the inability for producing it earlier and depends on relevancy.
You can very well produce the certified copy of the deposition of the respondent who adduced this evidence in some other court to extract the facts that are required to be established in this court's case.
You can even get it marked through him as your side exhibit after cross examining him on this matter or document.
