When examining a case, the court assesses the relevance, admissibility, reliability of each proof separately, as well as the residual and interdependence of evidence. Reliability is one of the fundamental requirements for evidence. The article considers evidence falsification as a ground for court decision review on newly discovered facts in relation to the other ground for the review which is parties’ and other participants’ of the case crimes. The authors substantiate the necessity of the evidence falsification review ground clarification in order for it not to be mixed up with the other ground for the review. The review of the court decision based on falsified evidence shouldn’t depend on who has falsified the evidence and who has introduced it in. The only fact that matters due to the review possibility is unreliability of evidence on which the court decision is based. The current regulation of the ground for court decision review under consideration substantially narrows the scope of its implementation in case of falsifying an evidence and introducing it in by a nonparticipant of the case.
