In lieu of Proclamation No. 572 which states that the amnesty of Antonio Trillanes III is null and void, the tough senator faces media to proclaim his side of truth.
In a Facebook live breaking news released by News5, Trillanes states that he has undergone step by step procedure before he got his amnesty certificate.
Despite claims that there is no application filed for the amnesty as per Armed Forces of the Philippines, thus the revocation of the grant.
According to Trillanes, his cases are already dismissed and there is no way to open the trial because it was already decided and it will result to double jeopardy which is prohibited by the Constitution.
The senator, pinpoints Solicitor General Calida and President Duterte for having connivance regarding the matter.
He then believes that the SolGen is the one who wrote the proclamation order.
“I Will Not Resist Arrest”
Trillanes said that he will not resist arrest, however, made a statement pertaining to Duterte that soon enough, he’ll be the one facing all the trials for corruption. He will wholeheartedly accept the arrest as the army is just doing its job.
At one point, Trillanes even said that he thinks that the reason why Duterte became a lawyer is because he paid the bar to make him pass. He said Duterte has no basis at all for what he proclaimed.
He also added a question asking Duterte why he had to wait for him to be in Israel to announce it.
He then courageously said that Duterte is the one who is afraid of him.
