What Is an Independent Witness?

Answer

An independent witness is someone who is not a friend or someone who can be influenced by you. If you were verbally assaulted by another and you had 10 friends at your side who witnessed this, their statement cannot be used in a court of law or as evidence as there statements will be considered as biased.

An independent witness is someone who is not led by friends or someone who can not be influenced by you. For instance, if you were verbally assaulted by another and you had 5 friends at your side who observed this, their statement cannot be used in a court of law or as evidence. But if you want an independent witness, you can get someone you don't know.
