Senator Panfilo Lacson warned SPO3 Arturo Lascañas to provide proof in his "extra-judicial confession" pointed against President Rodrigo Duterte in front of the Senate Committee.
"Ang maipapayo ko lamang kay SPO3 Lascañas, kung ang layunin ng iyong 'extra-judicial confession' ay mapanagot sa ilalim ng batas si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte at iba pang personalidad, marapat lamang na maliban sa iyong salaysay, may maipakita ka pang bukod at ibang ebidensya," the committee chairman said.
"Kung wala ay maaring masayang lamang ang oras ng mga tao dito dahil baka walang kahihinathan ang isinasagawa nating pagdinig sa araw na ito laban sa sinumang mga taong idinadawit mo," Lacson added.
Lacson criticized the flip-flopping statements of Lascañas referring to a Supreme Court ruling on 2011.
It could be remembered on the October 2016 Senate justice committee hearing that Lascañas denied self confessed hitman Edgar Matobato claims about then Mayor Duterte's alleged involvement in the alleged Davao death squad.
"I have grown averse to flip-flopping statements made under oath" said Lacson citing the characters such as Ador Mawanay, Udong Mahusay, Cesar Mancao who linked him to the killing of publicist Salvador “Bubby”Dacer and his driver Emmanuel Corbito.
