Witness credibility UPHELD if NO proof of ill-motive to testify against accused

Ribos' testimony during the trial was not shaken by the cross-examination of the defense counsel. It is not shown that he harbors any ill-motive against appellant. It is not expected that a witness would prevaricate and cause the criminal conviction of one who brought him no harm or injury. [G.R. No. 111541. December 17, 1996]
