Senator Panfilo Lacson tested the credibility of the testimony of Edgar Motabato, a self proclaimed member of Davao Death Squad during Duterte’s term as Mayor of Davao City.
The Senator also caught Motabato allegedly lying in his testimony about Richard King’s death.
Motabato said that the billionaire businessman was killed inside a fast food chain while eating, but Sen. Lacson research found that Richard King was killed inside his office in Vital-C.
According to old reports, Richard King was shot at close range in the head while in a gathering of his distributors inside Vital-C’s building last June 12.
Three suspects were arrested after Mayor Rodrigo Duterte vowed to solve the killing.
The Senator gave a sermon to the witness that he can be imprisoned for lying in his testimony because he is not yet under the witness protection.
“So mali yung kwento ninyo, yan sinabi ko eh mag testify under oath pero mali” Lacson said to Motabato.
According to Motabato’s testimony, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte ordered to kill King because of a businesswoman who owned a fast food chain in Davao City.
