“This is going to get the whole opposition camp crazy. Trillanes amnesty revoked by Duterte for senator’s failure to comply with requirements,” journalist Ira Panganiban wrote on Facebook.
In a Presidential Proclamation issued today, September 4, 2018, President Duterte has revoked the amnesty granted to Antonio Trillanes by BS Panot Aquino due to noncompliance of the requirements of the amnesty.
In an immediate comment about the release of the Proclamation, prominent social media influencer Trixie Cruz-Angeles recounted that Trillanes’ amnesty has lots of loopholes.
Going back in time, Aquino’s incompetence was actually manifested even in granting Trillanes amnesty. This was explicitly tackled in a column in Manila Times.
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, the fiercest critic of the Duterte administration is facing a big trouble as the Palace revokes the amnesty given to him.
The news was confirmed by Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Gueverra.
According to proclamation no. 572, President Rodrigo Duterte has declared the amnesty of Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV given to him by former President Benigno Aquino III void from the start.
Because of the proclamation, Philippine National Police (PNP) and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has the right now to arrest the Senator and bring him back to the detention facility where he belongs.
