Disqualification By Reason of Marriage

sc logo



Disqualification By Reason of Marriage







This is called the “spousal immunity”. This is different from marital
privilege.

Basis
The rule forbidding one spouse to testify for or against the other
is based on principles which are deemed important to preserve the
marriage relation as one of full confidence and affection, and that
this is regarded as more important to the public welfare than that
the exigencies of the lawsuits should authorize domestic peace to be
disregarded for the sake of ferreting out facts within the knowledge
of strangers.

When Rule Applicable
The rule applies to any form of testimony; therefore it protects
against using the spouse-witness’s admission or against compelling
him to produce documents.

In order that this will apply, it is necessary that the marriage is
valid and existing as of the time of the  offer of testimony and
that the other spouse is a party to the action.

The privilege to object to testimony concerning anti-marital facts
may be claimed only when the spouse for or against whom the testimony
of the other is offered as a party to the case.

After the death or the divorce of one spouse, the privilege ceases,
for the reason ceases.

The prosecuting attorney has no right to call a wife as a witness or
to attempt to draw from her statements that the accused had married
her for the purpose of suppressing her testimony.

The wife is competent to testify for the other defendant if the case
against his husband as a party was dismissed.

No unfavorable inference may be drawn from the fact that a party
spouse invokes the privilege to prevent the witness-spouse from
testifying against him or her.

Exception To The Rule:
1. That the case in which the husband or the wife is called to
   testify is a civil case instituted by one against the other
2. It is a criminal case for a crime committed by one against the
   other.

Reason for the Exception
The reason for the exception is that the identity of the interest
of person disappears and the consequent
danger of perjury based on that identity is non-existent. And in
such a situation, the security and confidence of private life which
the law aims at protecting will be nothing but ideals which, through
their absence, merely leave a void in the unhappy home.

This can be waived just like any other objection to the competency
of other witnesses. Can be waived through failure to interpose timely
objection or by calling the other spouse as a witness.

Where the accused husband in his testimony imputed the commission of
the crime to his wife, he is deemed to have waived his objection
to the latter’s testimony in rebuttal.

In a prosecution of the husband for the rape of their daughter,
the wife is not disqualified to testify for the prosecution since
the crime may be considered as having been committed against the
wife and the conjugal harmony sought to be protected by this rule
no loner exists.

The exception to the marital disqualification rule was applied
where the wife was the complainant in a case against her husband
for falsification of her signature in a deed of sale involving their
conjugal property.

Where the wife is a co-defendant in a suit charging her and her
husband with collusive fraud, she cannot be called as an adverse
party witness as this will violate the disqualification rule.

Marital Disqualification Rule vs. Marital Privilege Rule
1. Marital Disqualification Rule under Sec.22 Rule 130 of the Rules
   of Court is broader since it prevents all adverse testimony between
   spouses and not merely disclosure of confidential communications
   and may even cover matters occurring prior to the marriage.

   Marital Privilege Rule under Sec.24 on the other hand is limited  
   to those made during the course of the marriage.

2. Marital Disqualification Rule - One spouse should be a party to
   the case.

   Marital Privilege Rule - Where neither spouse is a party, this is
   the disqualifying rule.

Bar Examination 1998
C is the child of the spouses H and W. H sued his wife W for judicial
declaration of nullity of marriage under Article 36 of the Family Code.
In the trial, the following testified over the objection of W: C, H
and D, a doctor of medicine who used to treat W. Rule on W's objections
which are the following:

      1. H cannot testify against her because of the rule on marital
         privilege (1%)

      2. C cannot testify against her because of the doctrine on
         parental privilege (2%)

      3. D cannot testify against her because of the doctrine of
         privileged communication between patient and physician (2%)

Suggested Answer:
1. The rule of marital privilege cannot be invoked in the annulment
   case under Rule 36 of the Family Code because it is a civil case
   filed by one against the other (Sec.22 Rule 130 Rules of Court)

2. The doctrine of parental privilege cannot likewise be invoked by
   W as against the testimony of C, their child. C may not be compelled
   to testify but is free to testify against her.
   (Sec.25 Rule 130 Rules of Court / Art. 215 Family Code)

3. D, as a doctor who used to treat W, is disqualified to testify
   against W over her objection as to any advice or treatment given
   by him or any information which he may have acquired in his
   professional capacity (Sec.24(c) Rule 130 Rules of Court)

Disqualification By Reason Of Mental Incapacity Or Immaturity

supreme court logo



Disqualification By Reason Of Mental Incapacity Or Immaturity







The following can not be witnesses:
1. Those whose mental conditions, at the time of their production for
   examination, is such that they are incapable of intelligently
   making known their perception to others.
2. Children whose mental maturity is such as to render them incapable
   of perceiving the facts respecting which they are examined and
   relating to them truthfully.

People vs. Salomon (1993)
A mental retarded is not for this reason alone disqualified from
being a witness.

Child Witness Rule (Sec.6, AM 00-4-07-SC)
Every child is presumed qualified to be a witness. However, the court
shall conduct a competency examination of a child, motu propio or on
motion of a party, when it finds that substantial doubt exists
regarding the ability of the child to perceive, remember, communicate,
distinguish truth from falsehood, or appreciate the duty to tell the
truth in court.

People vs. Mendoza (1996)
Requisites of competency of a child as witness:
1. Capacity of observation
2. Capacity of recollection
3. Capacity of communication

The qualifications and disqualifications of witnesses are determined as
of the time the said witnesses are produced for examination in court
or at the taking of their depositions.

With respect to children of tender years, their competence at the time
of the occurrence to be testified to should be taken into account,
especially if such event took place long before their production as
witnesses.

Unsound Mind - any mental aberration, whether organic or functional,
or induced by drugs or hypnosis.

Unsoundness of mind does not per se render a witness incompetent, one
may be medically insane but in law capable of giving competent
testimony.

General Rule
Lunatic or a person affected with insanity is admissible as a witness
if he has sufficient understanding to apprehend the obligation of an
oath and is capable of giving a correct account of the matters which
he has seen or heard with respect to the questions at issue.

Exception
If the witness is a lawful inmate of an asylum for the insane, he
will not be presumed to be competent and before he can testify his
competency should be made to appear by the party offering him. This
is because the insanity is presumed to continue as a mental state, if
it has once existed, until the contrary is shown.

Idiots are incompetent witnesses. They may be classed as insane
persons. An Idiot being one who has no understanding of his nativity,
the law presumes that he will never attain any.

However, it is not prudent to admit the interpretation of a teacher
if he cannot understand properly the signs given by the deaf-mute
who was not even his student.

Drunkenness does not per se disqualify a witness from testifying. The
point of inquiry is the moment of examination.

A witness is not rendered incompetent by the fact that he was under
the influence of a drug at the time of the occurrence as to which he
testifies, or at the time of giving his testimony.

Deaf-mutes are competent witnesses when:
1. They can understand and appreciate the sanctity of an oath
2. Can comprehend facts they are going to testify to and
3. Can communicate their ideas through a qualified interpreter.

In the case of a child witness, the court in determining his
competency must consider his capacity:
1. At the time the fact to be testified to occurred such that he
   could received correct impressions thereof
2. To comprehend the obligation of an oath and
3. To relate those facts truly at the time he is offered as a witness.
   The court should take into account his capacity for observation,
   recollection and communication.

A child who witnessed the crime when he was 11 years old and testified
thereto when he was already 15, is a competent witness.

The intelligence of the child is the test of his competency and not
his age.

The court, not the judge as an individual, is to be satisfied of the
competency of the child.

Qualifications of Witness

Qualifications of Witness







Witness
Reference to a person who testifies in a case or gives evidence before
a judicial tribunal.

Competency of a Witness
Is the legal fitness or ability of a witness to be heard on the trial
of a cause.

General Rule
When a witness takes the stand to testify, the law, on grounds of
public policy, presumes that he is competent. The court cannot reject
the witness if there is not proof of his incompetency.

General Rule
All persons who can perceive, and, perceiving, can make their known
perception to others, may be witnesses. Religious/political belief,
interest in the outcome of the case, or conviction of a crime unless
otherwise provided by law, shall not be ground for disqualification.

Exception: Disqualifications:
1. By reason of mental incapacity or immaturity
2. By reason of marriage
3. By reason of death/insanity of adverse party

The burden is upon the party objecting to the competency of a witness
to establish the grounds of incompetency.

It is the judge who has the decision as to the competency of the
witness.

The objection to the competency of a witness must be made before he h
as given any testimony if a party knows before the trial that the
witness is incompetent, and if the incompetency appears on the trial,
the objection must be interpreted as soon as it becomes apparent.

When the incompetency of a witness is only partial, the objection
need not be raised until he is asked to testify to those matters as
to which he is incapacitated.

The testimony of the interested witness, while rightfully subjected
to careful scrutiny, should not be rejected on the ground of bias
alone.

The interest of the witness affects only his credibility but not his
competency.

When an attorney is a witness to his client, except as to merely
formal matters, such as the attestation or custody of an instrument
and the like, he should leave the trial of the case to other counsel.
Except when essential to the ends of justice, a lawyer should avoid
testifying in court in behalf of his client.

It is objectionable for a judge to be a witness on the same trial.
However, the trial judge is competent when his testimony concerns
merely formal or preliminary matters about which there is no dispute,
as where he testifies in a perjury prosecution that the defendant gave
testimony before him in another proceeding in another court.

Persons who have been convicted of perjury is cannot be discharged as
a witness for the government when he is a co-accused in a criminal
case. The same goes for witnesses to a will.

Upon the timely objection to the incompetency of a witness being
raised, it is the duty of the court to make such examination as will
satisfy him as to the competency or incompetency of the witness to
testify in the case, and thereupon, to rule on the objection
accordingly.

The failure to object to the competency of a witness is tantamount to
a waiver and once the evidence is admitted the same shall stay in the
records and be judge according to its merits; the judge has no right
to discard it solely for the reason that it could have been excluded
had it been objected to.

Acts of a party entitled to object that can be considered as waiver 
of an objection:
1. Where the party fails to raise the objection when the witness
   testifies, though at that time the party knows of his incompetency
2. Where one party who might have made the objection calls the witness
   in support of his own case.

BPI Dollar Savings Account

bpi logo


BPI Dollar Savings Account

BPI has a deposit product named Express Dollar Savings.

I came to know this when I tried to deposit a check in US Dollar I
received as payment.

      Read: Valid ID in the Philippines

The BPI branch teller told me that what I have is a BPI Peso Savings
Account and a check in US Dollar or Singapore Dollar for instance
is not allowed.

The Bank Teller told me to open a Dollar Savings Deposit Account
where my dollar check will be deposited.

Your BPI Dollar Savings Account will allow you
1. To Earn Interest
2. To Enjoy international ATM convenience with the Express Teller
   International ATM card that comes with your Express Dollar Savings
   account.
3. To Receive remittances from key cities worldwide via telegraphic
   transfers.
4. To accepts a wide range of deposit items- whether cash, dollar
   checks, travelers' cheques or demand drafts, you can deposit them
   all in your account.

You may also enrol your BPI Dollar Savings Account for online banking.

Savings Account with passbook, the required initial deposit is $500.

      Related: BPI ID Requirements

The required monthly average daily average to earn interest is also
$500.

The interest rate per year is 0.250%.

BDO Dormant Savings Account

bdo dormant savings account



BDO Dormant Savings Account







What is a dormant account?
When there has been no financial activity for a long period of time,
other than posting of interest, an account can be classified as dormant.

BDO charges a dormancy fee of P300.

      Related: BDO Accepted Valid ID

Most Philippine banks charges a dormancy fee in an amount ranging
from P300 to P500 per month.

Dormancy fee is charged only if a dormant account's balance falls
below the required minimum monthly ADB. Account is tagged dormant if
there is no client-initiated transaction within 12 months for
checking accounts and within 24 months for savings accounts.

      No transaction under the Manual of Regulations for Philippine
      banks means savings account or checking accounts showing no
      activity. No activity means no deposit or withdrawal.

Why do Philippine banks like BDO charges a dormancy fee?
Because the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, which under the law regulates
the banking industry allowed the banks to do so.

The powers and function of Bangko Sentral are exercised by its
Monetary Board.

      The Philippine Monetary Board allow banks to impose and collect
      service charges and/or maintenance fees on savings and demand
      deposit accounts, whether active or dormant, that fall below the
      required minimum monthly average daily balance (ADB).

Note: The bank must inform the depositor at least sixty (60) days prior
          to the imposition of dormancy fee. This should be done through
          registered mail with return card on the depositors last known
          address.

Construction in Favor of Natural Right


supreme court of the philippines logo


Construction in Favor of Natural Right






When an instrument is equally susceptible of two interpretations,
one in favor of natural rights and the other against it, the former
is to be adopted.

Parol Evidence Rule vs. Best Evidence Rule
1. Parol Evidence
   Presupposes that the original document is available in court.

   Best Evidence Rule
   Contemplates the situation wherein the original writing is not
   available and/or there is a dispute as to whether said writing is
   the original.

2. Parol Evidence Rule
   Prohibits the varying of the terms of a written agreement.

   Best Evidence Rule
   Prohibits the introduction of substitutionary evidence in lieu of
   the original document regardless of whether or not it varies the
   contents of the original.

3. Parol Evidence Rule
   Applies only to documents contractual in nature (Exception: wills)

   Best Evidence Rule
   Applies to all kinds of documents.

4. Parol Evidence Rule
   Can be invoked only when the controversy is between the parties to
   the written agreement, their privies or any party directly affected
   thereby.

   Best Evidence Rule
   Can be invoked by any party to an action regardless of whether or
   not such party participated in the writing involved.

Of Two Constructions, Which Preferred

supreme court logo



Of Two Constructions, Which Preferred







When the terms of an agreement have been intended in a different
sense by the different parties to it, that sense is to prevail
against either party in which he supposed the other understood it,
and when different constructions of a provision are otherwise
equally proper, that it is to be taken which is the most favorable
to the party in whose favor the provision was made.
