In this judgement of the Eastern Cape High Court in Grahamstown delivered on 9 March 2017, the court had to deal with the evidence of two handwriting experts.
The Master accepted the last dated will of the deceased as the last valid will of the deceased. The deceased’s sons disputed that their father ever signed such a document, in which he bequeathed a substantial portion of his estate to their stepmother. The conflicting evidence of two handwriting experts was considered in a matter that included deceit, a family feud and fraud.
