The Admissibility and the Probative Value about Recording in an Examination Room
A patient privately carries a tape recorder to an examination room and obtains a dialogue with the physician during the medical treatment without informing. This private recording has in principle admissibility of evidence, except for the recording obtained by violent coercion. However, whether such kinds of recording could be accepted, the arbitrariness and the authenticity shall still be regarded. According to paragragh 156 second 2 Criminal Procedure, other necessary evidence should also be investigated, in oder to proof if it is consistent with the facts.
