It's truth to the witness. Like religion is truth to the believer. Still not fact. Truth can be built on fact but has space for belief, deduction, perception and perspective. Truth can steer the unobjective mind into falsities. We see this everydayUmm......colour blind witness is not a very good analogy.
If the fact was known the witness was colour blind, then the witness testimony of the hat colour would not be considered a truth in the first place.
Truth and Fact are synonymous, and often there is 'context' to consider.
The definition of Truth: That which is true, or in accordance with fact or reality
The definition of Fact: A thing that is known, or proved to be true
Fact: the sun rises in the east, passes over and sets in the west
Derived truth: the sun revolves around the earth
Actual truth: the earth rotates
You can argue one but not the other. Point is fact is fact. Immovable, proven. Truth is not, whether you like or understand the analogy. You're right though, 'is not synonymous' should be stated as 'may not be synonymous'. I'm happy with semantics
