Abstract

This article reviews the current state of the law in relation to the use of voice identification parades to test the evidence of a witness who purports to recognise a witness by voice alone. Such procedures exist but are not used consistently by police forces, with some forces having decided as a matter of policy not to use them. Although such procedures are challenging and are more difficult than video identification procedures, the failure to conduct such a parade is a matter which should be properly taken into account in assessing the admissibility of a witness’s evidence.
