    The previously suggested factorisation of double-differential heavy-ion alpha coincidence cross sections into a product of inclusive cross sections for heavy-ion and alpha detection has been reexamined for the 14N + 58Ni reaction at 148 MeV. Contrary to the conclusions of previous work the present experiment indicates that these so called “uncorrelated” events are predominantly due to sequential decay of the primary fragments and hence are correlated.
