    PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES,
                                          Plaintiff,
                                                                                                                 Crim Case No. 12345

    PETITION FOR BAIL

             
          Accused, through the undersigned counsel, unto this Honorable Court, respectfully states:


    1. That accused is currently detained at the Makati City Jail for the charge of Frustrated Murder and has been behind bars since his arrest on August 1, 2013;

    2. That no bail has been recommended for his temporary release on the assumption that the evidence of guilt is strong;

    3. That the prosecution's evidence of guilt against accused, however, is weak  as there is no direct evidence that will point to the accused to have committed the the charges against him. The records will show that accused was malicious implicated in the case through the sworn statements of SINU NGALING and BULA AN who subsequently recanted their testimonies and confessed, among others, that they were made to sign the "affidavits of witnesses" against their will. (copies of the Affidavits of Recantation are hereto attached as Annexes "A" and "B")

    4. That there is no other physical or documentary evidence to show that accused is guilty of the crime charged;.

    5. That the burden of showing that evidence of guilt is strong is on the prosecution, and since this fact is not satisfactorily shown, accused is entitled to bail as a matter of right during the pendency of the criminal case.

          WHEREFORE, upon prior notice and hearing, it is respectfully prayed of this Honorable Court that accused AKU SADO be allowed to post bail for his temporary liberty pending trial of the criminal charge against him.
      
           Other just and equitable reliefs are likewise prayed for.

              Respectfully submitted.

              15 August 2013
              City of Makati.
