My One Penny: On what must be Done before the Statement of an Accused person made in a language, Other than English language will be tendered in Court

Spread the love

By Oseme Peremene Anthony

“In order to ensure the correctness and accuracy of a statement made by an accused person and to protect his right to fair hearing guaranteed by Section 36(6) of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, where he volunteers a statement in a language other than English Language, which is the language of the court, the statement in the original language in which it was recorded as well as its translation into English Language must be tendered in court. It affords the accused person the opportunity to challenge in Court if the need arises, his statement as originally recorded or its translation.

 

It enables the Court to be satisfied that it is his true statement. For this reason, it was held by this Court that the recorder of the statement as well as the interpreter must be produced in Court as witnesses, otherwise the statement remains hearsay and inadmissible in evidence.” – Adamu v. State (2019) LPELR-SC.72/2017 per Kekere-Ekun, JSC (Pp.12-13, Paras.A-A)
