Denial of the accusation, clarifications and indication of evidence
Indication of evidence by the defendant: The defendant, in his cross-examination, may indicate evidence. This indication is complementary to the technical defense produced by the lawyer.
Burden of proof rests with the Public Prosecutor: See this same subheading under the title Burden of proof and in dubio pro reo , in comments to article 156.
Denial in part of the accusation : The accused can deny in part the imputed fact. Recognize, for example, authorship, but claim that he acted in self-defense. On the divisibility of confession, see Article 200
