Paolo Duterte ‘won’t dignify’ claims of De Lima witness
DAVAO CITY, Philippines—Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte on Thursday said he will not dignify the accusations of witness Edgar Matobato that he ordered the killing of businessman Richard King in 2014.
In a statement, Duterte also called Matobato a “madman.”
Matobato also said Duterte was a drug user.
“What (Senator Leila) de Lima and this certain Matobato say in public are bare allegations in the absence of proof. They are mere hearsay. I will not dignify with an answer the accusations of a madman,” he said. RAM/rga
