CONFIRMED: No more Matobato on Senate Hearing
As promised of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, the self-confessed hitman Edgar Matobato surrenders and he’s now in the protective custody of the policemen.
During in a press briefing after Matobato’s processing at the CIDG office, Senator Trillanes expressed gratitude to PNP Chief Bato Dela Rosa on Friday morning, he said:
Safety and security is a matter of perspective. But I respect General Dela Rosa. He has given me his word so I don’t have any reason to doubt that.-Sen. Trillanes
On the other hand, PNP Chief Dela Rosa promised to protect Matobato, he said:
Siguruhin naming na safe yung witness na tinurnover sa atin ni Senator Trillanes and I have given him my word na we will protect Edgar Matobato.- PNP Chief Dela Rosa
Matobato Missed Dela Rosa
Dela Rosa shared few details of the closed meeting he had with Trillanes and Matobato right before at the CIDG.
[source]Na-miss daw niya ako. Sabi lang niya, he is just airing his side. That’s normal, we are both from Davao. Sabi niya, he knows me pretty well. Alam niya na mabait daw akong tao, sabi niya (Matobato)- Mabait ka na tao sir, kaya kampante ako na sa iyo ako dinala ni Senator Trillanes.
