ADMISSIBILITY OF EVIDENCE OBTAINED UNDER COMPULSION

Parties to ancillary relief proceedings were not entitled to invoke the privilege against self-incrimination in order to withhold the disclosure of financial information and such information was to be treated as being obtained under compulsion and would be inadmissible as evidence for the purpose of other proceedings, but statements made in “without prejudice” discussions were admissible in subsequent criminal proceedings.
