Judgments on Maxim Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus

Thursday, February 03, 2011
Maxim Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus

Maxim Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus — Held, the maxim falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus (false in one false in all) does not apply in criminal cases in India, as a witness may be partly truthful and partly false in the evidence he gives to the Court — The court has to assess to what extent the deposition of a witness can be relied upon — The court has to separate the falsehood from the truth and it is only in exceptional circumstances when it is not possible to separate the grain from the chaff because they are inextricably mixed up, that the whole evidence of such a witness can be discarded.
