1 Political Correctness in Legal Jargon on Wed Aug 14, 2013 11:11 pm


Arresto Menor

With due respect to the law, and the agents of the law. I wish to candidly ask the difference and meaning of the terms below to gain absolute knowledge on how or when they can be applied in full juridical weight.

    1.  PSYCHOLOGICAL INCAPACITY versus IGNORANCE OF THE LAW (as applied to Art. 36 of Family Code and Art. 3 of RA 386 or the Civil Code)

    2.  AFFIDAVIT OF MARITAL COHABITATION versus CONCUBINAGE (as applied to to Art. 34 of Family Code and Art 334 of Criminal Law)

    3.  LEGAL MISREPRESENTATION (via Rule 10 of IBP Code of Professional      Responsibility) versus IMMUNITY FROM MALICIOUS PROSECUTION (via case filed in court without probable cause)

In so far as the application of the terms are to be used to customize a case in order to render a favorable decision, that can only be viewed as a circumvention to the law (ubi jus, ibi remedium) and tweak the concept of 'innocent until proven guilty' by affording the 'guilty to be proven innocent'.

Unbreakable law.
