No They do not commit the necessary actus reus by ignoring, or not even reading, a defamatory post. To be guilty, one has to act: by words either spoken or intended to be read, or by signs or by visible representations, makes or publishes any imputation

Section 42-A of the POCSO Act, lays down two important principles.

Independent Thought vs Union Of India (2017) apparently states the law of India, presently, and the answer is, 18. India being a common law country, the Supreme Court has the power to interpret the law when the statutory language might suggest something else. The issue is that marital intercourse is often an exception to rape laws (India does not recognize ...

To "punish" A there must be evidence that would convince the court beyond reasonable doubt. The last statement will be just a piece of admissible evidence. Just by itself it will certainly not be enough to prove A's guilt, but it may add weight if there are other corroborating pieces of evidence e.g. witnesses saying that X indeed killed themselves ...

Unless there is a force majeure clause in your contract that excuses you from returning the router in extraordinary circumstances, you are legally required to return the router, or in general, perform your obligations in the contract.

An employer's failure to properly account for Provident Fund payments in accordance with the Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1952 is, on the face of it, the offfence under ...

Defamation is communication of a falsehood to a third-party damaging another's reputation. Company A and Company B know the truth and they're the only ones the statement appears to have been made to, so there is unlikely to be any defamation liability on the part of the client.

Yes. Why? because Torture is triggering different crimes by harming the body or psyche of the victim. Torture is defined for example in the Rome statute of the ICC: "Torture" means the intentional infliction of severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, upon a person in the custody or under the control of the accused; except that ...

This is almost assuredly in violation of your non-compete (assuming that is what you mean). Company documents would be covered under a non-disclosure agreement, so it doesn't matter if you generated them yourself or shared company documents. The key part of a non-compete is that you agree not to engage in work that is similar to the work/business of the ...
