Sen. Lacson stresses need to resolve 'physical impossibility' as 'perfect alibi'


Senator Panfilo Lacson emphasized the necessity to resolve issues involving convicts who commit crimes, saying the “perfect alibi, physical impossibility.”

In a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Lacson questioned authorities on crimes involving convicts of being at the crime scene.

The senator explained that it is a modus operandi. He further expounded that “physical impossibility” is a perfect defense, saying how can a person commit crime outside prison if there is no record that he was out.

Lacson stressed that this problem should be addressed because convicts could go in and out of prison to commit crimes and use “physical impossibility” as an alibi.

The senator emphasized the need to solve high-profile crimes immediately as it could create a perception of inefficiency.
