German term or phrase: Zeugnischarakter
This is taken from a confirmaiton of a police report (Anzeigebestätigung) into someone who has been smuggling goods into the country.

Under the general details with case reference numbers etc. there is a line that simply states:

"Anmerkung: Die Bestätigung hat keinen Zeugnischarakter"

I'm not sure what this is trying to say and would be grateful for any suggestions.

I am obviously suggesting using it as an adjective, i.e., "...is not testimonial (in nature)."
