Evidence of Tape Recordings

  • I.A. Wilson
  • K.N. Garner

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to critically examine the present law in this area. In relation to tape recordings generally, consideration will be given to their nature as evidence, conditions as to admissibility of their content (including admissibility of copy tapes and oral evidence of content) and admissibility of transcripts and translations of tape recordings. In relation to telephone interceptions the effect of recent amendments to the Telecommunications (Interception) Act 1979 (Cth) will be examined. In relation to other recorded conversations the provisions of the Invasion of Privacy Act 1971 (Qld) will be examined. It may be noted that other States of Australia have provisions similar to those in the latter act.
