People vs. Wilson Lopez, et al., G.R. No. 176354, August 3, 2010.

Evidence; alibi. The defense of alibi to be believed, must be supported by the most convincing evidence, as it is an inherently weak argument that can be easily fabricated to suit the ends of those who seek its recourse. Alibi must be supported by credible corroboration from disinterested witnesses; otherwise, it is fatal to the accused. Further, for alibi to prosper, appellants must prove not only that they were somewhere else when the crime was committed, but also that it was not physically possible for them to have been at the scene of the crime or within its immediate vicinity. In the present case, appellants’ alibi was corroborated by their relatives and friends who may not have been impartial witnesses. Thus, their defense of denial and alibi cannot prevail over the circumstantial evidence establishing their guilt beyond reasonable doubt. People vs. Wilson Lopez, et al., G.R. No. 176354, August 3, 2010.
