IGNORANCE IS NOT AN EXCUSE!

We’ll talk about this word today ~ IGNORANCE.

The definition according to Cambridge Dictionary, is not having enough knowledge, understanding, or information about something.

However, the Claimant’s other defence is that of ignorance. According to the Claimant, he was not aware that a valid driving license is needed in order to drive the company’s fleet of vehicles.

However, on the contrary to his claim, the Claimant had himself given evidence that the Company through its Shift Executive had been asking and following up for a copy of his valid driver’s license.

Nevertheless, the Court however concurs with the Company’s stand that ignorance of the law does not excuses a person thus Ignorantia juris non excusat, which is a Latin phrase which states “a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its content.”
