NewDefendant (None)     13 July 2010

Proving evidence and what is hearsay?

Persona "A" has a document hand written by deceased individual to person "B" and copied to "A".

"B" denies the document and its contents and accuses "A" of fabricating it.


How can "A" make the sure the document is admissible as evidence?


Can "A" use the following methods to help make the document admissible as evidence:

1.  The decease person had discussed the contents of his letter with "C". "C" is willing to testify to this in court.

2. Also based on "C's  long association with the deceased person, can provide original handwriting samples of deceased person for comparison purposes.


Any other suggestions?

Kindly note that if B has already denied that documents then it means that the same is already exhibited. What I have understood is that you want to know how to get it proved. Yes, you have rightly answered your own query.That apart c should also say that he is very much acquainted with the handwriting of the deceased person because of his long association with him.

According to ur question that  whether evidence of 'C' is admissible or not the hearsay evidence is valid, in ur case that C had already acquaited with deceased so at the time of trial we must filed evidence affidavit of C. and to prove ur defence.
