Oral evidence and its significance in a Court of law

  • All statements that are required to be submitted by witnesses in relation to the fact of the matter in front of the courts
  • The oral evidence needs to be consistent with the circumstances, whether it stands true and does not deviate during times of cross-examination
  • In case the oral evidence pertains to a fact that has been seen, then it is the witness who needs to have seen the occurrence and cannot give an oral statement based on hearsay
  • If the court finds it so necessary, then proper documents supporting the oral evidence will have to procured and submitted
