- Solicitor General Jose Calida threatened to file a libel case against Sen. Antonio Trillanes
- Calida wanted Trillanes to apologize for his recent accusations to the Solicitor General
- However, Trillanes said that he will not apologize to Calida
Solicitor General Jose Calida has threatened to sue Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for libel if he will not take back his recent accusations.
“Unless Mr. Trillanes expresses his sincere apology for calling me a thief, I shall be constrained to file a criminal case for libel plus damages against him,” said by Calida as reported by Rappler.
In a recent report by KAMI, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV accused Solicitor General Jose Calida for allegedly stealing his amnesty application documents.
According to Trillanes, his documents were in the custody of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Department of National Defense (DND).
He said, “Nananawagan ako sa leadership ng Armed Forces [of the Philippines] and ng Department of National Defense, particularly yung J1 ng AFP. Alam nila na nag-apply ako. Alam nila na meron akong dokumento. Bakit hinayaan nilang kunin ito at iwala ni Mr. Calida?"
However, KAMI has learned that Calida denied these accusations. Calida insisted that he did not enter the premises of J1 nor the Personnel Division of AFP.
Trillanes stated that he would not apologize to Calida. He said, “He can do whatever he wants, I expect the worst out of him,” as reported by Rappler.
The senator also said that Calida cannot demand anything from him for the entire public knows the truth. “Kung magfa-file siya, gawin niya. Trip-trip niya ‘yan,” he said.
SolGen Calida was the one who noticed that there were anomalies in Trillanes’ amnesty application. Therefore, President Rodrigo Duterte signed Proclamation No. 752 saying that the amnesty granted to Trillanes was invalid.
