Second Section – the Negative Commandments


74. It is a negative commandment for a court "do not accept the testimony of a relative"

As it states in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 24:16, "do not put fathers to death because of children." This means through the testimony of children. The same law applies for other relatives.
