Trillanes May Face Charges, Arrest Following Duterte Revoking his Amnesty Grant
DUTERTE – Malacañang revealed that Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte revoked the amnesty grant to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is one of those who received an amnesty grant from former President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III when he was still the national leader.
The navy lieutenant is one of those who, in 2007, protested against the alleged corruption under former Pres. and now House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. He was detained yet it did not hinder his winning of a seat in the Senate.
In 2011, then-President Noynoy Aquino III granted amnesty to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and other members of the military who were detained as well. However, recently, Malacañang revealed that the Senator’s amnesty grant was revoked.
Based on a recent report on ABS-CBN News, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte revoked the amnesty grant of Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV. According to the Palace, the Senator failed to comply with the “minimum requirements”.
The court-martial of the AFP and the Department of Justice were reportedly ordered to continue with certain charges against the Senator.
Furthermore, based on the report, the police and the military were also tasked to utilize “all lawful means” to arrest Sen. Trillanes.
