- Pres. Duterte signed Proclamation No. 572 in today’s issue of Manila Times
- The proclamation stated the revocation of Sen. Trillanes’ amnesty that was granted to him back in 2010
- The President also ordered the AFP and PNP to arrest Sen. Trillanes
President Duterte revoked the amnesty granted to Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV back in 2010. In an issue of Manila Times today, September 4, Pres. Duterte signed Proclamation No. 572, stating that Trillanes’ amnesty as “void ab initio”.
It has been confirmed by Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra to Rappler, as what was stated, “The grant of amnesty to former LTSG Antonio Trillanes IV under Proclamation No. 75 is declared void ab initio because he did not comply with the minimum requirements to qualify under the Amnesty Program,”
The president has also ordered both Department of Justice (DOJ) and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) “to pursue all criminal and administrative cases filed against former LTSG Antiono Trillanes” with regard to the incident that happened in Oakwood Munity and Manila Peninsula. The Philippine National Police (PNP) and AFP were also ordered to “employ all lawful means to apprehend” Sen. Trillanes.
Back in 2010, former president Benigno Aquino III granted Trillanes’ amnesty after leading the Oakwood mutiny in 2003 and the Manila Peninsula incident against former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2007.
In a previous report by KAMI, Sen. Trillanes tested negative to all illegal drug use and he challenged the Duterte family to undergo the test as well.
Trillanes has been opposing the president since then. He even filed a plunder complaint against Pres. Duterte for not declaring and not being transparent with his wealth.
