my question is:

(a) can signatures in a photostat be proved as forged by expert analysis

(b) even if the signature is proved to be false on a photostat document can the expert hold his ground if the original document containing forged signatures was not made available to him during his analysis.

(c) assuming i am facing a department enquiry in the above case in which i have submitted a photostat document in which i had forged signatures of somebody. what defence can be i produce to defend myself before the enquiry committee when confronted with the expert opinion

(d) what is the legal position in court for the above query
