by | Oct 7, 2023

 Doli incapax –It means “incapable of deceit” or “incapable of wrongdoing” in English. It is a legal term used to describe a presumption that young children lack the capacity to understand or form criminal intent, and therefore, they are considered incapable of committing certain offenses.

  • Doli :- deceit or trickery
  • Incapax :- incapable of

Example – The court ruled that the child was doli incapax, recognizing that they were too young to understand the consequences of their actions and, therefore, could not be held criminally responsible for the offense.This would indicate that the child is considered incapable of deceit or wrongdoing under the law due to their age.
