A party and his or her witnesses may present oral evidence at the hearing; however, NTCAT may require that a written statement of their evidence is provided to the other party in advance of the hearing.

Any person giving oral evidence at an NTCAT hearing may be required to swear an oath or make an affirmation that that they promise to tell the truth. It is a serious offence to knowingly give false evidence on oath or affirmation.

A party will usually be permitted to cross-examine another party’s witness. The tribunal member may also ask questions.
