Qui facit per alium facit per se

“Qui facit per alium facit per se” is a Latin phrase that means “He who acts through another, acts himself.” This phrase highlights the importance of accountability and responsibility in any delegation of tasks. It suggests that even when someone delegates a task or acts through another person, they are still responsible for the outcome as if they had done it themselves. The phrase emphasizes the idea that indirect actions do not absolve one of responsibility and underscores the importance of taking ownership of one’s actions.
