MUST READ: Motabato a lying witness, coached what to say — Justice Sec. Aguirre
“Walang katotohanan yung sinasabi nito. ito ang tinatawag na lying coached witness. Kasi you could not be admitted into the witness protection program without executing an affidavit."
This was the statement of Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre to the presented witness of the extrajudicial hearing on Thursday.
Edgar Motabato, claimed himself as a previous member of Davao Death Squad. He accused the President that he was the one who ordered some of the killings when the latter was the mayor of Davao City.
Sec. Aguirre added that if the witness’ allegations were true, De Lima and the previous administration could have already charged Mayor Duterte.
“Bakit noong nasa Pnoy administration pa, bakit hindi sila nakapagdemanda kung naniniwala sila rito? Bakit ngayon lang? Porket nalaman nila yung testimony laban kay De Lima talagang explosive, ten times more explosive than this. Desperate times ito kay De Lima kaya she needs desperate solution.”
