Senate President Vicente Sotto III considers the new oust-Duterte matrix with the names of athletes Hidilyn Diaz, and Gretchen Ho on it as "asar-kay-Duterte" list.
“Ang description dyan pwede ganito: Ito ang listahan ng mga asar kay Duterte… Ang tawag nila destabilization. Ako ang tawag ko dun, asar,” Sotto said in his interview on Dobol B sa News TV.
He suggested that some personalities that were being dragged into this type of matrices are just asar or annoyed with Duterte.
Sotto pointed out that anyone can produce a matrix. He said that the matrix from Malacañang linking Diaz and Ho to alleged oust-Duterte plot should not be considered a thing for further investigation.
“Hindi na siguro,” Sotto said.
“Matrix lang naman yun e. You can treat it as credible or incredible. E matrix lang yun e, kahit sino pwede namang gumawa ng matrix,” he added.

Senator Panfilo Lacson on Thursday scoffed at the inclusion of the athletes in the oust-Duterte matrix.
In a tweet, Lacson responded in a sarcastic tone saying that the information was gathered either through ‘excellent intelligence work or Bikoy who had infiltrated the NSA (National Security Agency).’ —Joviland Rita/LBG, GMA News
