Mensagem:  While In English a certain rule of law holds someone innocent until proven guilty, in Portuguese the same law simply holds someone "culpado até prova em contrário."

Why does the Portuguese read differently from the English, can you tell me?

Herr Breckenfeld, hast du any idea? Vielen Dank!
