Presunto Culpable… no más

16 July 2013


The Federal District Assembly unanimously approved a change Monday in the District’s criminal procedure code, under which the accused will be presumed innocent.  Going into effect next year, the new law will only be in effect for one year, since a new Federal Code, which also gives the benefit of the doubt to the accused, and will mandate this change in the present “guilty until proved otherwise” assumptions now in effect throughout the Republic, will be implemented in 2016.
