1. If a party believes that some of the core pieces of evidence held by the opposite party are falsified (e.g., a false lease document in a trial on land), should he raise it out by an interlocutory application?

The opposite party shall have included the relevant “suspicious” evidence in his List of Documents (including any evidence that disclosed in any interlocutory application) (otherwise the opposite party could not rely on the same at the trial).


If a party has sound reason to believe that a piece of documentary evidence disclosed by the opposite party is falsified, he or she shall within 21 days after inspection of the said document serves on the opposite party a notice stating that he or she does not admit the authenticity of that document and requires it to be proved at the trial, otherwise he or she may be deemed to admit its authenticity at trial.
