Ignorance of law is no excuse.
It is a Latin maxim, which means ignorance of fact can be excused but the ignorance of law cannot be excused. Every person should know the laws of the country where he lives. He cannot plead ignorance of it. Even the foreigner has to abide with the laws of the land as long as he happens to be in that country. This maxim is often used in Criminal Law.
If a person thinks that he has a right to kill a person outlawed or excommunicated wherever he meets him and does so, this is murder.But when a man intends to kill a thief or housebreaker in his own house, but he kills a member of his family, this will be considered as a mistake of fact and hence, there should be no criminal action.
A complete statement requires no interpreter
It is a Latin maxim, which means that an absolute judgment or sentence needs no expositor. In simpler words, plain language does not need an interpreter. The sentence that is plain and absolute does not need an expositor. The term expositor means a person or a thing, which explains about complicated theory or idea.
The scene of the event
Locus in quo is a Latin maxim, which means “the scene of the event” or “the place in which”. In general sense it means the place where the cause of action arose, i.e. the place where something is alleged to have occurred.
A false description does not vitiate
- In simple sense, the maxim means, some inaccurate description or some grammatical mistakes or basic miscalculation will not make the whole gadget or document as a void. - Normally, if a document contains 2 side from which if one side is absolute and correct and another side have some basic inaccuracy than 2nd side shall be rejected instead of considering whole document void also note on that the instrument does not involve any malaise effect. - Thus, if one segment is true and another is not and if the true part decides the subject matter with all possibility than the false segment will be disregard.
