A witness is said to be biased when his relation to the cause or to the

parties is such that he has an incentive to exaggerate or give false color to


his statements, or to suppress or to pervert the truth, or to state what is
false. (People vs. Lusabio, Jr. G.R. No. 186119, October 27, 2009.)

Jurisprudence is settled that whatever is repugnant to the standards of


human knowledge, observation and experience becomes incredible and
lies outside judicial cognizance. Consistently, we ruled that evidence, to be
believed, must proceed not only from the mouth of a credible witness but
must be credible in itself as to hurdle the test of conformity with the
knowledge and common experience of mankind. (Zapatos vs. People, G.R.
Nos. 147814-15. September 16, 2003)
