For information

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In logic, the Principle of contradiction (principium contradictionis in Latin) is the second of the so-called three classic laws of thought. The oldest statement of the law is that contradictory statements cannot both at the same time be true, e.g. the two propositions A is B and A is not B are mutually exclusive. A may be B at one time, and not at another; A may be partly B and partly not B at the same time; but it is impossible to predicate of the same thing, at the same time, and in the same sense, the absence and the presence of the same quality. This is the statement of the law given by Aristotle. It takes no account of the truth of either proposition; if one is true, the other is not; one of the two must be false.

The mention of 'a date to be scheduled on the 14th' indicates proceedings are set to last longer than the three days set for them.

Mr Amaral's lawyers want a CD containing police case files to be submitted as evidence because it would corroborate the claims in his book.

His testimony is marred by a high-pitched whine of feedback from the microphone - and the fact the screen can't be seen by the public.
