Forgery

A case of forgery is filed against me by my company. The cheque which was said to be forged by me was sent to handwriting expert. Report says that the cheque is not forged. Is the opinion of a handwriting expert accepted by the courts?

Expert Advice


An expert opinion while admissible can never be held as conclusive proof as to the issue at hand. The testimony of the expert can definitely be relied upon but the same may have only persuasive value and it is in no way incumbent upon the Courts to consider the testimony of an expert as conclusive evidence. I presume you already have engaged representation in the matter. If that is so, it is essential for you to discuss with your Advocate the probability of how the testimony affects your defence. Best of luck!
