Renante Matobato said, “I can recall a distant relative from father's side by the name of Edgar Matobato. I refer to Edgar Matobato who recently testified before the Senate hearing on EJK.”
“In my entire government service with city government of Davao I cannot recall Edgar Matobato had worked there in any capacity or be it as member of the DDS which he claimed he is or was,” Renante said.
In his senate testimony, Edgar Matobato claimed to be "ghost employee" of the Davao City Government [Star].
Renante was Legal Aide to Chiefs of the Barangay and Cultural Communities Affairs [PIA] and Traffic Management Center until he resigned in July 2005 to join the Public Attorneys' Office.
Edgar Matobato, a real estate agent?Renante has met Edgar before.
"What I can recall though was at the time he worked in the LGU in Samal, Davao del Norte. I can also recall he was engaged in buy-and-sell of land in Samal because he approached me once to notarize a deed of sale which I cannot recall if I did," Renante said.
Samal is one of Davao's neighboring cities. It is not managed by the Davao City government.
Renante now lives in Australia, where he earned a graduate certificate in Australian Migration Law and Practice from the Australian National University [SydneyHerald].
