proof of a foreign power of attorney
I am dealing with a civil case where the opposite party has set up a power of attorney alleged to have been executed by certain persons residing in Malaysia. I want to prove that the said power of attorney is not a genuine document. My client has been to Malaysia and could not trace the said person i.e. by those whom the power of attorney is purported to have executed. Now the problem is how to proceed in the courts here i.e. how to prove that it is not a genuine document. Since document has been embossed as required under the law, the same carries a presumption of truth under the Indian Evidence Act and as such the onus is on us to prove the same is not genuine Any relevant case law shall be highly appreciated.
With warm regards,
