WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE DUTY OF THE COURT TO APPOINT COUNSEL DE OFFICIO DURING ARRAIGNMENT AND DURING TRIAL?
> During arraignment, the court has the affirmative duty to inform the accused of his right to counsel and to provide him with one in case he cannot afford it
> The court must act on its own volition unless the right is waived by the accused
> On the other hand, during trial, it is the accused who must asser this right to counsel. The court will not act unless the accused invokes his rights.
