Edgar Matobato Leaves the Senate Drawing Ire from Sen. Gordon & Lacson


The controversial Senate witness Edgar Matobato leaves the Senate Floor before quetioning through the effort of Sen. Trillanes. The disappearance of Matobato drew ire from Sen. Richard "Dick" Gordon and Sen. Panfilo "Bong" Lacson, leading the legislators to say that the witness had been taking the panel for a ride.




Sen. Dick Gordon, chairman of the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights was informed by a note from the Office of Sen. Antonio Trillanes that Edgar Matobato was no longer available to answer the panel's questions.

It is not only Sen. Gordon but also Sen. Lacson, lashed out after hearing testimony that Matobato had been charged with the kidnapping of alleged terrorist Sali Makdum. When it was time for Matobato to testify, the witness had already left the premisis.

Gen. Dick Gordon also read the note for all the people to be informed by stating that "Matobato had to leave so his security won't be compromised." Gordon said.

The Justice Committee chairman added further that "Para bang nu'ng nabuko na, biglang nawala na," Gordon added.
"We are now lining up all the inconsistencies and perpetrated by Mr. Matobato," Gordon said.

Sen. Lacson on his part was quoted as saying "I would like to believe, although I hate to admit this, that we were all taken of a ride by Mr. Matobato. And it's so frustrating that after all, we're not smarter than the first grader," Lacson added, in reference to Matobato's first grade education.
