Amnesty Grant to Trillanes Revoked

TRILLANES – The amnesty grant to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was revoked.

In 2011, then-President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III granted amnesty to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. The latter protested against the alleged corruption under then-President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in 2007.

Although he was detained, the former Navy lieutenant secured a post in the Senate. He got the amnesty grant in 2011 and was reelected in the Senate two years after.

Recently, many were surprised when news reports about the revocation of Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV’s amnesty grant broke out.

According to Malacañang, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV failed to meet the minimum requirements leading to the revocation of his amnesty grant. The police and the military were instructed to use all legal ways to arrest the Senator.

For the Department of Justice and the Armed Forces of the Philippines, they were tasked to go on with the charges against him. The AFP was already instructed to assemble a general court-martial.

According to military spokesman Edgard Arevalo, now that his amnesty was revoked, Sen. Trillanes is back to his military status. He will be under the custody of the military if he will be apprehended.

For his part, according to the Senator, he will not escape and will not resist arrest. He is firm that no evidence can be found against him. He is staying under the custody of the Senate.

Recently, on the social media page of The Philippine Star, photos of the dismissal orders in 2011 were posted. The said dismissal orders on the case against Trillanes and other personalities were from Makati Regional Trial Court branches 148 and 150.
