Self-confessed hitman Edgar Matobato on Friday formally filed a complaint before the Ombudsman against President Rodrigo Duterte and 27 others over their alleged involvement in the so-called Davao Death Squad (DDS).
Matobato, who has claimed to be a former member of DDS, charged the President with murder, kidnapping, violation of Republic Act No. 9745 or the Anti-Torture Act, and violations of R.A. No. 9851, or the Philippine Act on Crimes Against International Humanitarian Law, Genocide, and Other Crimes Against Humanity.
The charges were filed by Matobato's lawyer, Jude Sabio, who said his client chose not to go to the Office of the Ombudsman for the filing.
