  • Video and sound recorded on phone, admissible in civil case?

    A and B are having a heated discussion. A takes out his phone and starts to record the encounter by holding it in front of him in full view of B.

    B makes no reference to the phone; he doesn't give or deny permission for the encounter to be recorded.

    Can A submit the recording to an Industrial Tribunal as evidence of what has been said?

    You need to be careful when using recordings, what you could do is transcribe the conversation.

        I still think you need to make the Tribunal aware before you use it, I'm sure ULA will be able to give you the correct procedure you need to follow.
