Matobato, another sued for kidnapping

THE Panabo Prosecution Office has recommended the filing of charges against self-proclaimed Davao Death Squad hitman Edgar Matobato and a certain Sonny Custodio for the kidnapping of Salih Muck Doom in Samal in 2000.

Based on the charge sheet dated December 22, 2016, and published on DZMM Teleradyo, Panabo City Prosecutor Joseph Apao indicted Matobato and Custodio for the case.

The case was connected to the complaint filed by Mirasol Marquez, common-law wife of Sali Muck Doom who was killed on November 9, 2000.

Apao recommended no bail for the case.

Matobato admitted during the September 15, 2016 Senate inquiry that he killed Sali Muck Doom as ordered by then Mayor of Davao City, President Rodrigo Duterte.

Last January 17, 2017, Matobato's legal counsel Jude Sabio filed a supplemental motion to the Samal City Prosecutor's Office for the referral of his client's kidnapping case at the Ombudsman.
