By Alon Calinao Dy: Senator Tito Sotto and other senators, who heard and attended Matobato's testimony against President Rodrigo Duterte when he was still a mayor of Davao City regarding his involvement on extrajudicial killings and summary executions, were not satisfied.
Sotto had a couple of questions to the witness Edgar Matobato regarding his participation on the said extrajudicial killings. But the witness did not collaborate well his story.
When Sotto asked Matobato about a sworn affidavit, Senator De lima immediately interrupted stating that the Office of the Chair will assist the witness in making the affidavit after the hearing.
It seemed Senator Sotto felt disappointed about this move and how come this Matobato did not make a sworn affidavit before making a public statement against President Duterte. Playing safe?
Like millions of Filipinos around the world, most who attended were not satisfied to the testimony of the witness, and when asked who arranged Matobato's arrival, Senator Antonio Trillanes tried to stop Senator Cayetano questioning the credibility of the witness and the names of his protectors.
