Senators clash over hitman

Senate leaders clashed yesterday over the issue of where Edgar Matobato, star witness of a Senate committee against President Duterte, should be placed under protective custody.

Senate President Koko Pimentel said the Senate has no business giving protection to a witness because such a job is done by the Department of Justice, Office of the Ombudsman, or the Commission on Human Rights. (Mario B. Casayuran)
