Right from my childhood, I firmly believe that it is not the quantum of knowledge or information you learn over the years, it is the ability in you to be self-less and share the maximum as to what little you know.  Let us all help each other and develop a robust society to realize our Dr.Abdul Kalaam's dream of a developed India by 2020.

P.W.1 - Prosecution Witness No.1

P.W.2 - Prosecution Witness No.2


They are the Witnesses of the Plaintiff, later will be crossed by the defendant's counsel.

Dear Pratik,

 

Answers :


1) You may call it Plaintiff's Witness that will be more suitable. Defendant's witness is right.

2) They are called as Prosecution witness, because a public prosecutor is a lawyer appointed by government to prosecute criminals, PP represents The State.

3) As far as case-laws are concerned, i don't have one. You might get it from others.

4) There is no public prosecutor in civil cases, it is an disupute between individuals.

5) A Public Prosecutor is the same thing as a District Attorney. District Attorney is the term used in the U.S., and the term Public Prosecutor is used in India,Europe and Australia, Canada, Hong Kong and South Africa (maybe other places that I don't know about as well). A lawyer is an attorney, who may be a prosecutor, a defense attorney, a corporate or other type of non-litigation attorney. Lawyers may work in private practice, for a firm, OR for the government entities, such as the Public Prosecutor's / District Attorney's office.

Hope that helps.

Regards
