LOOK: Atty. Rivera LECTURES Critics Who Said Dayan and Epinosa's Testimonies 'Scripted'

"Under the law, inconsistencies do not negate a testimony especially if it is not on a material point and human perceptions are in play. In fact, if the testimonies are too perfect, it becomes suspicious."

Going back to the statements of driver, bodyguard and ex-boyfriend Ronnie Dyan of Sen. Leila De Lima, and alleged drug lord in Eastern Visayas, Kerwin Espinosa, there are some who believed that their testimonies were 'scripted.'

This is because of the 'differences in the number of times money was given and time when they were introduced'.

But the prominent lawyer, Atty. Bruce Rivera explained that inconsistencies do not negate a testimony under the law.

On Rivera's Facebook post that went viral, he said:

MORE DISTURBING

I saw in my newsfeed several posts saying the Dayan and Espinosa testimonies are scripted because of the differences in the number of times money was given and time when they were introduced.

Under the law, inconsistencies do not negate a testimony especially if it is not on a material point and human perceptions are in play. In fact, if the testimonies are too perfect, it becomes suspicious.
The number of times money was given can be disregarded whether four or five times because human perception is fallible and people can make mistakes. Gaya ng tanong, ilang beses kayo nag-sex, tapos iba-iba ang sagot, pwede magkaiba ang sagot. Kaya, malay mo...mas matatas ang memory ng isa at makalimutin yung isa.

But to those who are making these posts:

It does not change the fact that money was given whether it be four or five times is not that material because the fact remains that drug money was given.

It is more disturbing that there are people nitpicking on details when we should be looking at the bigger picture.
As of the moment, this post already gained more than 3,500 reactions and was shared more than 500 times.
