“Public apology ang kailangan dito. He should be man enough to admit na nagkamali siya. He falsely accused a member of the committee. Trillanes said.
“Eh ngayong hinarapan siya ng katotohanan eh pride ang umiral. Hindi maganda yon. Lumalabas ang bias ng chairman,” Trillanes added.
Senator Leila De Lima walkout even the hearing was ongoing.
Meanwhile, Trillanes read a part of the transcript of Matobato disclosed the information before the committee.
“Opo, ma’am kasi pinaylan ako ng kaso, ma’am ng kidnapping kang Sali Makdum. Hindi ko sila tinuro. Parang inako ko rin. Pinaylan ako sa NBI,” Matobato said then.
Trillanes said Gordon and the others who accused De Lima of deliberately concealing information.
“That was very unfair kaya ganun pero nung napahiya na, naghanap na ng butas kung anu-anong maliliit na bagay. Everybody saw it, napahiya sila,” Trillanes said.
“We cannot feign ignorance,” he added.
“Kung sasabihin niyang memory lapse yon, o teka ikaw nga nagme-memory lapse, si Mr. Matobato hindi pwede magka-memory lapse?” Senator Trillanes argued.
