Published:Saturday | August 10, 2013 | 9:36 AM

The Government is to bring another set of amendments to the Evidence Act, which will, among other things, allow uncontested expert reports within the court system.



Minister of Justice, Senator Mark Golding, reportedly made the disclosure during an interview with JIS News.



He also noted that the Act is being amended to allow for other agreed evidence, not contested by the Prosecution and the Defence, to be introduced without having to call the actual witness.



He explains that this relates particularly to expert evidence such as autopsy and ballistics reports.



The amendments will also facilitate easy admission of computer-generated evidence.
