Abstract

Biometric voice identification evidence is being used in the United Kingdom for the prosecution of criminal offences whilst the discussion in relation to its reliability rages forth. Given the technological advances made in this field there is little doubt that this evidence is beginning to harness the scientific objectivity that should be demanded from voice identification and expert evidence where used in the prosecution of crime. Cell site analysis is another type of expert evidence that has long been used by prosecutors to help determine the proximity of an accused to the geographical location of a crime scene at a particular time on a specified date. It is often used to contradict and test alibi evidence that suggests the accused was elsewhere at the time and date the offence took place. Both these hazardous forms of expert evidence have issues that undermine the extent to which they can be relied upon to, amongst other things, determine the identity of the perpetrator and the level to which they were involved. This paper seeks to explore the challenges and risks associated with both these rather novel forms of evidence and whether they, when used in conjunction, can lend greater confidence to one another.

KeywordsBiometric voice identification, evidence, cell site analysis and covert surveillance.
