DAVAO CITY - A Regional Trial Court (RTC) has issued an arrest warrant for self-confessed Davao Death Squad (DDS) member Edgar Matobato and a man identified as Sonny Custodio for kidnapping.
Presiding Judge Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga of the Panabo City RTC Branch 4 also recommended no bail for their temporary liberty.
The case was filed by the National Bureau of Investigation-11 in connection with the kidnapping of Sali Makdum, a Turkish National in Samal, whom Matobato claimed to have killed in 2002.
Matobato admitted in a Senate inquiry that he participated in the abduction and murder of Makdum, who he said was a terrorist.
The court gave authorities 10 days to arrest Matobato and Custodio.
