Lacson strikes De Lima for keeping Matobato a secret before senate probe

"Mukhang sila lang ni Sen. Trillanes ang nakakaalam na may magte-testify."

On Friday, Senator Panfilo Lacson reprimanded Senator Leile De Lima for keeping witness Edgar Matobato a secret prior to his appearance on the Senate probe regarding drug-related killings.

Lacson said on a TV interview that De Lima should have notified him that Motabato would be a witness. He stated that it is De Lima's expected courtesy to do so as he is her co-chair on the probe.

De Lima, as the chairperson of the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights, leads an investigation on alleged extrajudicial and summary killings amongst Duterte's administration's war on drugs while Lacson as the Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs.

"Kung ako co-chairman ako sa pagdinig sana man lang nasabihan ako ng aking co-chair, although siya ang lead committee dito, na may lalabas na witness," Lacson said.

"Pero hindi nagkaroon ng ganoong courtesy. Nabulaga kaming lahat. Siya lang nakakaalam. Mukhang sila lang ni Sen. Trillanes ang nakakaalam na may magte-testify," he added.

De Lima said earlier that she sought help from Trillanes for Motabato's security who testified that President Rodrigo Duterte led the Davao Death Squad.

"Nabigla rin kami. May teaset pa kanyang opisina, nagpalabas ng teaser sa Senate media sabing may explosive mag-testify na dating member ng DDS. Bakit kami 'di nasabihan? Ako co-chair 'di nasabihan, pero media sinabihan," Lacson said.

Senator Lacson also believed that Motabato was lying to them and that the public should be skeptic of his testimony.

"Kita natin sa pagtatanong ng senador, sa pagtatanong ko, sa pagtatanong ng iba, hindi totoo mga sinasabi niya. Kung meron siyang sinasabing totoo, 'yan ang hindi ko alam - alin doon?" he added.
