No, that is not the only evidence we have - we also (could) have their 
explanations about other bids which would tell us that they have no way 
to describe the hand in question (just diamonds, weak, no spade 
support). In particular, they did not explain -as you did- that 3C would 
be a re-transfer.
So we have (or could have) quite compelling evidence that the bid to 
describe the hand in question is precisely the bid of 3D.
Logical conclusions from evidence at hand is also evidence.

Tell that to Haacht and advice them to appeal.
If you need, the case can be found on the VBL website - competitie (VBL) 
- Liga 2E - match Haacht-Begijntje.

Others than Alain (and our northern neighbours) - don't bother to try 
and find it - it's in Dutch.
