ipso facto is a Latin phrase which means "by the fact itself". This means that a certain effect is a direct consequence of the action in question, instead of being brought about by a subsequent action such as the verdict of a tribunal.

Example: According to Law related to money laundering, the act is ipso facto illegal because it is done as a cover for something else, so the act puts the actions of an individual in question.
