Gordon about Motabato: His stories are inconsistent.


The senator is extremely skeptical of the Motabato's credibility.

Senator Richard Gordon asserted that the professed former hitman had so many inconsistencies in his testimony during the Senate probe on the alleged human rights violations related to the war on drugs of Duterte's administration.

Edgar Motabato, who claimed himself as a former member of the alleged Davao Death Squad led by President Rodrigo Duterte during his time as Davao City mayor, was put into extreme questioning on Thursday to test his credibility.

The investigation was initially led by Senator Leila De Lima but she was ousted from her position as the chairman and was replaced by Gordon.

"He says he was part of the squad—initially, he was not talking about it. He had so many inconsistencies," Gordon said.

Gordon took high regard of how Motabato relayed his stories inconsistently, saying he only presented a travelogue of murders.

"You have to test his credibility, you have to test his memory, you have to test events. And he was changing stories," he said.

The senators became more skeptical when Motabato was consistently changing his statemens regarding the killings of Pakistani national Sali Makdum and a Natinal Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agent Amisola.

According to Gordon, Motabato is not immuned from suit despite his testimony on Senate hearings.

"You go there at your own peril. When you say something against somebody, you have to be accountable for that. You cannot just bask in the righteousness, so to speak, because if you live in a glass house, you’ll be pilloried. In his case, everybody had the right to cross-examine him for credibility," he said.
