In an interview with News To Go, the Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel stated that the senate wasted time in hearing Edgar Matobato’s testimonies since it’s “off topic” to the Resolution No. 9 which is filed by Senator Leila De Lima.
Nag-aksaya tayo ng isang buong araw para sa witness na yun na wala naman siyang contribution sa proposed Senate Resolution No. 9-Pimentel.
Ang hearing naming in aid of legislation, merong pinu-pursue na subject matter, hindi kahit ano pwedeng pagusapan.
Senator Pimentel did not accept De Lima’s request to give Matobato a protective custody since his testimonies about the killings in Davao happened way back in then 90’s up to 2013, which are invalid.
