The law of evidence is an indispensable part of both substantive and procedural laws. It imparts credibility to the adjudicatory process by indicating the degree of veracity to be attributed to ‘facts’ before the forum.
The finding of the facts, the question of law and the conclusion of the court culminating into the judgments in a criminal case mainly based on the appreciation of evidence.
The rules of evidence are not applied independently from other factors and do not exist solely as a matter of academic interest.
They are a dynamic set of principles which interact with other essential factors including the rules of substantive law, the rules of procedures and the substantive characteristics of many of the participants in the trial.
