The son of Prospero Nograles issued a statement denying the claim of de Lima’s star witness that four of his father’s bodyguard were killed by Duterte’s DDS.
In a Facebook post, Rep. Karlo Nograles expressed utter dismay on the allegation made by Edgar Matobato during the Senate hearing chaired by Sen. Leila de Lima.
In the senate hearing, Edgar Matobato alleged that four of Congressman Prospero Nograles’ men were executed summarily by vigilantes in Davao City.
I don’t know what this guy is talking about. From the time I was chief-of-staff to the time I was elected as congressman, no supporter of ours or persons under our employ was ever killed due to politics.
Rep. Karlo Nograles denied any use of violence in the conduct of their politics between the Duterte’s and the Nogralesés in Davao City.
Political differences in our city has always been strictly on the level of difference in policy and style; it has never degraded into the level of physical or violent. That is why it is easy for us to set aside our differences and unite for the common good of Davao and the nation. I can only suspect that this guy is being manipulated by some people to only serve their own selfish interests.
The Facebook post of Representative Karlo Nograles has been shared more than 6,800 times and hour after it was posted.
Netizen Jovvy Moler says on Facebook:
EJK Senate Hearing against present administration is just a waste of time and money without credible witnesses… OMG! The Chair of committee is obviously one sided as what I observed. The witness has no other evidence except himself and just by saying “I’m telling the truth”, why this kind of witness allowed without knowing his credibility before presenting to the senate hearing?
Gnaj Louise Jose in reaction to the witness allegation says:
Halata lang masyado yung pulitikong nagdala sa taong yan sa senado. Tinake advantage ang kaguluhan sa Davao para makahanap ng bagong iwiwitness. O baka naman may kinalaman talaga ang pulitikong nasa likod ng pagsabog sa Davao para maidivert ang lahat ng atensyon ng mga tao at media sa iba. Di ba halata? To the expense of the innocents pagtatakpan talaga ng kung sinong poncio pilato ang kasinungalingan nila.
