Article 63 Evidence shall be classified as follows: (1) documentary evidence; (2) material evidence; (3) audio-visual material; (4) testimony of witnesses; (5) statements of the parties; (6) expert conclusions; and (7) records of inspection.
The above-mentioned evidence must be verified before it can be taken as a basis for ascertaining a fact.
Article 64 It is the duty of a party to an action to provide evidence in support of his allegations.
"If, for objective reasons, a party and his agent ad litem are unable to collect the evidence by themselves or if the people's court considers the evidence necessary for the trial of the case, the people's court shall investigate and collect it."
"The people's court shall, in accordance with the procedure prescribed by the law, examine and verify evidence comprehensively and objectively."
