DOJ Motion for the Arrest of Sen. Trillanes Denied
TRILLANES – Philippine Senator Antonio Trillanes IV broke his silence on the denied motion of the Department of Justice for his arrest.
Following the revocation of his amnesty by the Duterte Proclamation 572, Sen. Sonny Trillanes has been facing lots of issues. For several days, the Senator stayed in the custody of the Senate.
Two Makati Courts did not release an arrest warrant against the Senator until Makati RTC Branch 150 has released an order.
Sen. Antonio Trillanes was arrested. The Senator right away posted a bail of Php 200,000.
Recently, a motion of the Department of Justice for Sen. Antonio Trillanes’ arrest was junked by a Makati Court. It elicited different comments from the people. To this, the former Navy Lieutenant also spoke his side.
Based on a recent report on ABS-CBN News, the Senator is grateful to the Almighty for granting the prayers of “all who prayed for the right to prevail”.
According to Sen. Trillanes, he is also thankful to Judge Soriano who “upheld justice and the rule of law in our country despite the extreme pressure coming from the Duterte regime”.
Based on the report, Judge Soriano wrote in the decision that the court has dismissed the coup d’etat case against the Senator on September 21, 2011 and the decision was “final and executory.”
Undeniably, the Senator is one of the staunch critics of the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. For several times, he and the 73-year-old President have exchanged statements.
Based on the report, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV will go on with his job as one of those included in the opposition. He stressed that he will be the same critic as he was before.
“I’m just upholding my role in our democracy as a member of the opposition,” the Senator said.
