« Given the ability of the spread of fake COVID-19 tests to undermine the government`s efforts to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the signatory believes it is necessary to increase the penalty for falsifying medical certificates during a declared national health emergency such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, » Gordon said in his statement. The first chapter defines what a crime is, what acts and omissions can be punished either by deception or by fault. When it comes to defining who is criminally responsible, whether a crime is committed, foiled or attempted, when conspiracy and suggestion to commit crimes are punishable, which crimes are minor, less serious and serious. In accordance with the abovementioned judgment, and considering that it was the defendant who exploited and profited from the use of the false employee discharge in question, the presumption that it is the essential author of the infringement is inevitable. And despite all possibilities, she was unable to rebut such a presumption by not being able to prove that it was another person who had falsified or falsified Laura Pangilan`s signature, or that at least one other person, and not her alone, had the reason or motive to commit the falsification or falsification, or that she benefited or could have benefited from such a forgery/forgery.60 The complainant was accused of falsifying the release of her employee in accordance with article 171, paragraph 1, of the Revised Criminal Code.

She said that the signature in the petitioner`s employee`s discharge was not hers. The same thing was an imitation. If a person whose signature has been affixed to a document refuses to sign it, a prima facie proof of falsification is established, which the defendant must overcome.48 66 para.
3. The original document must be submitted; Exceptions. – If the subject matter of the investigation is the content of a document, no evidence other than the original document itself is admissible, except in the following cases: (a) if the original has been lost or destroyed or cannot be presented to a court without the claimant being in bad faith; (b) if the original is in the custody or control of the party to whom the evidence is presented and the party does not present it after reasonable notice; (c) where the original consists of numerous accounts or other documents which cannot be examined in court without a significant loss of time, and where the fact that they are to be determined is only the general result of the whole; and (d) the original is a public document entrusted to the care of a public official or is registered in a public office. This from the 22nd to the 23rd or around that date. August 2000 or at any time before or after in the city of Cotabato, Philippines and in the jurisdiction of this honorable court, the defendant NORMALLAH A. PACASUM, a senior official who is regional secretary of the Ministry of Tourism in the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, city of Cotabato, has in the exercise of his official functions by committing the crime in this context and taking advantage of his official position, then and there, she intentionally, illegally and criminally falsified her release as an employee,3 which she had submitted to the Office of the Regional Governor of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, by imitating the signature of Laura Y. Pangilan, the DOT-ARMM Supply Officer I, to claim her salary for the months of August and September 2000.4 I. The conclusion that the applicant benefited from the alleged infringement must therefore be regarded as the author if the evidence in the file does not support, but even contradicts, such a conclusion. Sandiganbayan found that the signature of Laura Y. Pangilan, DOT-ARMM Procurement Officer, which appears in the petitioner`s employees` authorization as having been falsified or falsified.
Little emphasis was placed on the applicant`s defence, who denied that it was she who had actually falsified her employee licence by imitating Laura Pangilan`s signature and that she had no idea of the alleged falsification because it was her assistant secretary, Marie Cris Batuampar, who was working for her release and she, who submitted the said communiqué to the Office of the Regional Governor of the ARMM. The Court of First Instance concluded that this refusal was unfounded and held that, although there was no direct evidence that the applicant herself had « effectively » falsified Laura Pangilan`s signature, there were circumstances that suggested that it was she who had committed the falsification or falsification or who had asked someone else to falsify or forge the signature in her employee`s discharge. Sandiganbayan added that, since it was the petitioner who had profited from and profited from the use of the false discharge, the presumption was that she was the material author of the forgery. Despite all the opportunities available to her, she was unable to rebut this presumption without showing that it was another person who had falsified Laura Pangilan`s signature, or that another person had the reason or motive for committing the forgery or falsification, or that she could have benefited from it. Jose I. Lorena, former Attorney General of the ARMM, testified that he was aware of Governor Misuari`s memorandum of August 8, 2000 because it was the result of consultations between him, Governor Misuari and the Executive Secretary of the ARMM, Parcasio. He explained that the memorandum referred only to outstanding cash advances. He added that the release of employees is not a requirement and is not sufficient to comply with the policy contained in the memorandum, as a credit report from the Audit Board`s resident auditors is required for the purposes of salary release. Case law has recognized the nuclear nature of the subjective element of the crime. This will be integrated by the will and awareness to tell the truth.
Thus, what is really not true becomes true. Malicious intent must be accredited and proven. And in private documents, a motive for profit or other special intent will be required, as opposed to public documents. First, there is insufficient evidence to prove beyond any doubt the applicant`s guilt. Article 171, paragraph 11, of the revised Penal Code punishes « any official, employee or notary who performs his or her official function falsifies a document by falsifying or imitating a writing, signature or section ». 62 Republic v Vda de Neri, 468 Phil. 842, 862-863 (2004), citing Francisco, The Revised Rules of Court in the Philippines (Vol. VII, Part II), p. 7.
