Manila – In a quick interview following the filing of a ‘crimes against humanity’ suit before the International Criminal Court by ex-DDS hitman Edgar Matobato lawyer Jude Josue Sabio, Solicitor General Jose Calida merely laughed at the move, saying it is baseless.

“His witnesses have no credibility left,” says Calida. “They are murderers, criminals according to their own admission and thus their testimonies cannot be admitted in court.”

Asked about the government’s use of convicted drug inmates against Senator Leila de Lima, Calida only smiled and replied, “I absolutely believe their testimony. They have no reason to lie. They are without a doubt more credible and trustworthy.”
