Lend Me Your Ears: An Analysis Of How Voice Identification Evidence Is Treated In Four Neighbouring Criminal Justice Systems
This article reviews the approaches taken by the courts to the admissibility of voice identification evidence in four jurisdictions; England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Each jurisdiction addresses the question in a different way and each approach is open to criticism. This paper will argue that a contextualised approach to the problem would allow for improvements which would enhance the quality of the evidence and the adjudicative process.
