It: something on facebook? Something fake? Something meant to deceive? Something meant to initially deceive, but to be transparent enough to be found out eventually? Is "it" a conspiracy theory? Did "we" create "it"? Are you, Redwine, one of "us"? He: H? A? M? A friend of "us"? An enemy? A target? A person of authority? A person who should have known better? Number of "us" relevant? "We"= H? A? M? Is he gullible? Were you shocked at his gullibility?

It: something on facebook? No.
Something fake? Something meant to deceive? Something meant to initially deceive, but to be transparent enough to be found out eventually?
No, but something fake and deceiving constitutes a part of "it".
Is "it" a conspiracy theory? No.
Did "we" create "it"? No. Are you, Redwine, one of "us"? Yes.
He: H? A? M? Yes. A friend of "us"? No. An enemy? No. A target? No. A person of authority? Yes. A person who should have known better? Yes. Number of "us" relevant? No. It may somehow help though. "We"= H? A? M? H, A, Mixed.
Is he gullible? I wouldn't call it that way, but it may seem so. Were you shocked at his gullibility? Yes, noting my answer above.

Great opening.

A target? No.

Which reminds me of the old joke: What is the difference between engineers and civil engineers? Answer: Engineers construct weapons. Civil engineers construct targets.


Is facebook at all relevant in this puzzle?
Is "it" a statement?
A story?
Some made-up tale about something supposed to be true, but obviously couldn't be?
Such as, "Japanese workers have a rough deal; they must work 1000 hours a month at dismal wages" and there are maximum 744 hours in a month (31 days times 24 hours)?

An "argument" can mean two things in English, I believe:
1) A discussion between two disagreeing parties
2) Something that one says in order to win someone over for one's own opinion

Which of 1) or 2) is the most OTRT?

From your profile I see that you're a lawyer. Were you in the courtroom as part of your education? Were you there with fellow students?
Were the relevant pieces of evidence statements of witnesses?
Did the argument contain a logical fallacy? Did it fail to take into account other possibilities?
(in the sense: the witness says A, the witness is unreliable, so the contrary of A must be true)
.. from this I would conclude that it was the prosecution who made this argument ..?
Did the prosecutor know that his argument was fallacious? but wanted to get done with this case?
Did the crime involve: theft? burglary? robbery? fraud? tax evasion? blackmailing?

From your profile I see that you're a lawyer. Were you in the courtroom as part of your education? Yes. Were you there with fellow students? Yes.
Were the relevant pieces of evidence statements of witnesses? statements of the victim, but it's not the only relevant piece of evidence.

Did the argument contain a logical fallacy? I would call it rather a false assumption. Did it fail to take into account other possibilities? possibly.
(in the sense: the witness says A, the witness is unreliable, so the contrary of A must be true) Nothing like this.
.. from this I would conclude that it was the prosecution who made this argument ..? It was the initiative of the judge. Judge asked a question to the victim.
Did the prosecutor know that his argument was fallacious? see above. but wanted to get done with this case? Both the prosecutor and the judge wanted to be done with the case.
Did the crime involve: theft? burglary? robbery? fraud? This. tax evasion? blackmailing?

As Sundowner discovered why I was there, I can add that our teacher took us to see this particular case because it was likely to start and end during one hearing and also because the judge was to be the best judge in this court.

Is a specific photo relevant? More than one photo? All photos? Relevant who it belongs to? If so: accused? A victim? All victims? Someone else? Relevant exactly what the charge is?

was the point of the photos to prove someone's identity? to prove that they had been in a particular place? that they had been with another person?

was it about whether the photos could be considered pornographic? offensive? incriminating? embarassing? had the photos been posted on the internet?

RECAP & SOME HINTS
When I was a third year student, I learned criminal procedure. Our teacher wanted us to see how it works in practice, so she took us to the court to see the trial. She chose the case, which was likely to start and end on one hearing (she wanted us to see whole trial). The case was held by the best judge in that court. The judge knew there will be students on the audience, he prepared himself particularly well for that occassion.
The case was about fraud - a man drained much money from a small company run by the three men (victims).
There was a need to determine the identity of the culprit (whether the accused was the same man who did business with the victims). That's where photo album is relevant. Also a statement of the victim is relevant.

Explore why there was a need to prove identity of the culprit, while both accused and victims were present in the court.


Time starts to press me a bit, I would love to have this puzzle solved before my wedding, which is soon...

Did the victims identify the culprit at some earlier occasion? (at the police station?) from the same set of photographs? Were the photos given to the victims by the police? Was it basically photos of notorious fraudsters?
Did the victims ever meet the culprit in person (before the trial)?
Did the culprit build his defense basically on claiming that he is not the man they are looking for?

So basically the following happened: three men were ripped off by a business partner? they went to the police? they identified the man on a photo? the police arrested the man on the photo?
but the man claimed that he is not the one on the photo?

So the judge was left with two contradictory statements ("He is the one", "I'm not the one") and had to decide whom to believe? Did he want to have additional evidence against the culprit? or did he investigate the possibility that the victims (or the police?) were mistaken?

Did the police know the name of the man on the photo before they arrested him? Did they indeed arrest the wrong man?
Did the photo show the culprit together with (one of) the victims?

You said that the fact that the judge looked at the photos is irrelevant. In that case: Did he look at the cover of the facebook? Is some of its physical features relevant? Relevant what were the ages of the people(s) depicted in the facebook? Relevant when the pictures were taken?

Was the question asked by the judge: "Do you see this man present in the court room?"

Was it clear from other evidence that the one depicted in the photo is the guilty one, but still unclear (at least for the judge) if he is the same one with the defendant?

You said there were three victims. Is it relevant to whom the question was asked? If to all three, who answered? Was the answer more than a simple "Yes" or "No"? Such as "Yes, but..."

Is the defendant presumably in the photo(s) or is he presumed to have been the author of them?

Let's try more -- so the one on the photo was certainly the defendant, it was very probable that this guy was the wrongdoer, however the judge led a further more question to establish his identity? Someone else's identity? Is his name relevant? Was he a transsexual? John Doe becoming Jane Doe or the reverse? Is someone else relevant, apart from the ones present there?

By leading the question, was the judge trying to get the testimony of the victim that the defendant did the wrong he was accused of? That he didn't? That the defendant is in the picture? That he is not? Something else?

If the judge would have asked "Is this the one who frauded you?" (answered "Yes") would the defendant been able to escape punishment through some technicality of the law (like double jeopardy)? Is double jeopardy at least OTRT here? Are previous trials involving the same defendant and the same victims relevant?

Establishing the defendant's identity: that he is who he pretends he is? That his name is correct? That he did the fraud?

Did the defendant recognize that he was the one in the photo? Did he challenged that? Relevant?

Are twins involved?

Did the judge avoid asking "is he in the courtroom" because it would be easy to just assume that the person in the defendant's chair is the one you should point out?

Was the problem with the book the fact that, having seen it before, the victim knew that he just had to choose the one he chose before (as in, it was the second one on the first page)? Is that close?

There was a need to determine the identity of the culprit (whether the accused was the same man who did business with the victims). The identification was done in the early stage of investigation. Victims identified a culprit in the police photo album used on such occassions.
The judge wanted to confirm this identification. He tried to avoid asking: is the culprit the one here in the courtroom, because he thought everybody should point out the accused and this could be easily questioned in supreme courts.
To confirm whether the early, photo identification, was correct or not, the judge asked a yes/no question to the victim (irrelevant which one). The question had an underlying false assumption. Due to this false assumption we considered the question foolish, yet the judge found it - and the answer - convincing. The answer led to identification being confirmed.

So... If <event?,>... that type of condition? Yes, but "event" is not the best word for it.

Is any part of the statement related to the identification? To the album?

As noone got it and I will be off for some time, here goes...
********SPOILER***********
The judge knew that there had been an earlier identification, when the victim identified the culprit in the police photo album and said that he was sure about the identification. During the trial, conducted about 10 years later, judge had to confirm whether the accused is the culprit. So he asked the victim: "If you had not been sure about the photo identification 10 years ago, would you have said you had been sure?" When victim obviously responded "No", judge found it a convincing proof of the culprit's identification. He didn't notice that noone would probably confess that he had misled the police (or even lied), after 10 years, during the trial which can result in getting quite an amount of money.

Thanks to everybody playing.
