In general, law permits the person to see the documents in question and to recollect the facts and to depose them before the court. This is called Refreshing Memory.
- A Witness has a right to refresh his memory by looking into a copy of a document.
- Writings include accounts, printing, lithography, photography etc.
- If the recorded statement is not in writing, it is not to be used as refreshing memory.
- Sometimes, the document in question might not be presented as an evidence, but the facts remain admissible.
