PETITION FOR BAIL


Accused, through the undersigned counsel, unto this Honorable
Court, respectfully
states:
1. That accused is currently detained at the Makati City Jail for the charge of
Frustrated Murder and has been behind bars since his arrest on August 1,
2013;
2. That no bail has been recommended for his temporary release on the
assumption that the evidence of guilt is strong;
3. That the prosecution's evidence of guilt against accused, however, is weak
as there is no direct evidence that will point to the accused to have
committed the the charges against him. The records will show that accused
was malicious implicated in the case through the sworn statements of SINU
NGALING and BULA AN who subsequently recanted their testimonies and
confessed, among others, that they were made to sign the "affidavits of
witnesses" against their will. (copies of the Affidavits of Recantation are
hereto attached as Annexes "A" and "B")
4. That there is no other physical or documentary evidence to show that
accused is guilty of the crime charged;.
5. That the burden of showing that evidence of guilt is strong is on the
prosecution, and since this fact is not satisfactorily shown, accused is
entitled to bail as a matter of right during the pendency of the criminal case.
WHEREFORE, upon prior notice and hearing, it is respectfully prayed of
this Honorable Court that accused AKU SADO be allowed to post bail for his
temporary liberty pending trial of the criminal charge against him.
Other just and equitable reliefs are likewise prayed for.

7. DEMURRER TO EVIDENCE

REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES


NATIONAL CAPITAL JUDICIAL REGION
REGIONAL TRIAL COURT
BRANCH 40, MANILA CITY

PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES,


Plaintiff,

versus

Crim. Case No. Q131745


For: FALSIFICATION OF PUBLIC
DOCUMENT

SPO3 ISIDORO B. BOTE,


Accused.
x ----------------------------------------------- x

DEMURRER TO EVIDENCE

The Accused SONNY MANGALINDAN, through the undersigned counsel,


most respectfully submits its Demurrer to Evidence and avers:

BASIS FOR THE DEMURRER

It is incumbent upon the prosecution to adduce evidence sufficient to prove


beyond reasonable doubt (a) the commission of the crime, and (b) the precise
degree of participation therein by the accused (Gutib vs. Court of Appeals, 312
SCRA 365).

The charges against an accused must be dismissed if there is no

competent or sufficient evidence adduced that would sustain the charges against
him, should the same be raised in a demurrer to the evidence. Section 23, Rule
119 of the Revised Rules of Criminal Procedure provides:

Sec. 23 After the prosecution rests its case, the court may dismiss the
action on the ground of insufficiency of evidence (1) on its own initiative after
giving the prosecution the opportunity to be heard or (2) upon demurrer to
evidence filed by the accused with or without leave of court.
x x x

It is well-settled rule that conviction for a criminal offense should be based


on clear and positive evidence and not on mere assumption. (Gaerlan vs. CA 179
SCRA 20). The burden lies upon the prosecution to prove the guilt of the accused
beyond reasonable doubt rather that upon the accused to prove that he is in fact
innocent.

(People vs. Lati, 184 SCRA 336).

Failing in this, the presumption of

innocence will prevail. (Sec. 1 (a) Rule 115).

ARGUMENTS/DISCUSSION

The only witness for the prosecution was REYNALDO P. CAMILLO. It cannot
be overemphasized that the affidavit of the complainant and the testimony of said
witness showed that he had no personal knowledge of the alleged theft that was
committed on 01 January 2006.

Moreover what is more dubious is that the

affidavit of said complainant was done on 04 February 2006, more than one (1)
month after the alleged incident took place.

Said witness did not see the alleged

taking, stealing and carrying away of the cash money since he was on vacation at
Baguio City.

Complainant was miles away when the alleged taking, stealing and

carrying away of the cash money was done. It was highly improbable for him to
witness the incident. In complainants affidavit, he based his accusation only on the
information of his grandson which is also the son of the accused that it was his
father who entered the room. There was no mention made that accused was seen
taking, stealing and carrying away the cash money.

The same information was

given to him by his daughter who is also the wife of the accused. In other words,
there was no witness at all who had seen the alleged taking, stealing and carrying

away of the cash money. Noteworthy is the fact that the grandson and the wife of
the accused did not testify to corroborate the testimony of the complainant. Hence,
the basis of the complainant in charging the accused for theft is not substantiated
considering that it is purely hearsay and have no probative value whether objected
to or not.

It was emphasized by the defense in their cross-examination of said

witness that he had no personal knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the


alleged taking, stealing and carrying away of the cash money. In fact the
complainant himself was having a hard time remembering the exact amount of the
cash money that was allegedly taken whether it was P120,000.00 or P150,0000.00.
There is no need to discuss the other elements of theft since the prosecution was
not able to establish the alleged taking, stealing and carrying away of the cash
money.

Indeed, any oral or documentary evidence is hearsay by nature if its


probative value is not based on the personal knowledge of the witness but on the
knowledge of some other person not on the witness stand. (2 Regalado, Remedial
Law Compendium, 1989 6th Rev. Ed., p. 486). By virtue of this legal aphorism, no
probative value can attach to the alleged confession of Carlos albeit no objection
thereto was interposed by the defense.

(People vs. Villahermosa, (CA) 67 O.G.

4929 citing People vs. Cabral, et. Al. Verily, in criminal cases the admission of
hearsay evidence would be a violation of the constitutional provision that the
accused shall enjoy the right of being confronted with the witnesses testifying
against him and to cross-examine them. Moreover the court is without opportunity
to test the credibility of hearsay statements by observing the demeanor of the
person who supposedly made them People vs. Melo Santos, 245 SCRA 569, July 3,
1995.

PRAYER

WHEREFORE, premises considered, it is respectfully prayed that the


Honorable Court that this Demurrer to Evidence be granted and that the criminal
charge of Theft against the accused SONNY MANGALINDAN be DISMISSED.

Other reliefs, just and equitable, are likewise prayed for.
