Witness statement.

Witness statement.

Postby Earl » Thu May 04, 2017 6:52 am

I have submitted to the Court my particulars of case. This contains all that I wish to say and is in my words. Do I have to submit it again headed as my witness statement, or are the particulars sufficient?

If you are 1000% certain that you have no other evidence to give, and that there will be nothing you should say in reply to anything said in the defence, and that there is nothing you should say about any documents disclosed on either side ...

That would be very unusual.

I am replying to the defence at the moment and will disclose further documents with that reply.
The reply is headed 'reply to the defence'
or should it be headed witness statement in reply to the defence.

Thank you atticus.
But still not sure if I need to submit my particulars as a witness statement.

No. It is a "Reply". Read the part of the CPR that relates - from memory CPR 16. I gave you the number the other day in your other thread.

You do need to verify the content with a statement of truth.
