Senator Tito Sotto: STOP the DRAMA on Duterte



The Senate should no longer hear the possible testimonies of four more death squad members, Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III said Monday, as it will only “prolong the teleserye” on President Rodrigo Duterte’s supposed “sins.” 

In a text message to reporters, Sotto said he agreed with Senator Panfilo Lacson, who earlier said he saw no purpose on the confession of retired Davao City cop Arturo Lascañas, other than to try and “destabilize” the administration. 

“Ping is most probably right,” Sotto said. “Another Senate probe on new claims will just fall into the trap of trying to prolong the teleserye of so-called sins of the President.”

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV earlier said there are four more Davao Death Squad (DDS) members who will surface and prove the claims of Lascañas as well as that of confessed hitman Edgar Matobato. 

“Exposing the truth is definitely not destabilization,” Trillanes said. 

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian said Lascañas has lost his credibility. 

“Everything he says subsequently cannot be the basis for achieving the truth,” Gathalian said in a text message.

“As for the other accusers, if Lascañas will be the source, then those accusers are also contaminated. They cannot be trusted as well,” he added. 

Last week, the Senate public order committee heard the testimony of Lascañas on the alleged killings ordered by Duterte during his term as Davao City mayor. 

The panel chaired by Lacson concluded the probe after just one hearing, saying Lascañas’ testimony has “no probative value.”
