The law of evidence is procedural and doesn’t affect the substantive right of parties. It is the law of the forum (or court) or the lex fori. This is purely a matter of convenience. The rules of law of evidence for civil and criminal cases are in general the same. But there are certain sections of the act which apply exclusively to civil cases, and some to criminal cases.
