Davao City Rep. Nograles: "No supporter of ours or persons under our employ was ever killed due to politics"


Davao City Rep. Karlo Nograles 
denied what Edgar Matobato said at the Senate hearing that DDS killed the bodyguards of his father, former Speaker Prospero C. Nograles last 2010.

“I don't know what this guy is talking about,” Nograles said.

“From the time I was chief-of-staff of former Speaker Prospero C. Nograles to the time I was elected as congressman, no supporter of ours or persons under our employ was ever killed due to politics,” Nograles added.



Nograles said although their family and the Duterte family are rivals in elections. There was no clash between them because they always share the same goal for the good of all Davaenos.

“Political differences in our city has always been strictly on the level of difference in policy and style and it has never degraded into the level of violence. That is why it is easy for us to set aside our differences and unite for the common good of Davao and the nation,” Nograles said.

Nograles cited that perhaps, Matobato was dictated by other people who has a "selfish interests." 

“I can only suspect that this guy is being manipulated by some people to only serve their own selfish interests,” he said.

Meanwhile, these were the statement of Matobato claiming that they kidnapped and killed Prospero Nograles's bodyguards.

“Noong 2010, tumakbo po si Prospero Nograles na mayor ng Davao City. Naglaban sila ni Mayor Duterte so hinuli nila at pinakidnap ang mga bodyguard ni Nograles. Kinidnap namin at dinala sa island city of Samal,”Matobato said.

“Ako ang nagbuhat, isa-isa ko binuhat. Nilagay sa buhangin at binigti lahat. Pagkatapos, biniyak namin ‘yung tiyan tapos ako ang nagkarga ng bangka doon sa laot. Tinapon namin. Nilagyan ng hollow blocks, tig tatlo kada isang tao,” he added.
