- Senator Antonio Trillanes faces another warrant of arrest
- This time, it was issued by Davao court with regard to his libel case
- The case was filed by Presidential son Paolo Duterte
A court in Davao issued an arrest warrant against opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV with regard to the libel case filed by Presidential son and former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte and his brother-in-law Atty. Mans Carpio.
KAMI wants to bring this news to the readers to impart knowledge regarding the cases Senator Trillanes has been facing during the current administration.
As reported by PTV4, the libel case is bailable for P24,000. It was Judge Melinda Alconcel-Dayanghirang that issued the warrant of arrest for Trillanes.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, the arrest warrant came after Trillanes posted a P200,000 travel bond since the Makati court allowed him to travel abroad which the Department of Justice contested.
As previously reported by KAMI, Duterte and Carpio filed libel against Trillanes because the senator accused the two of extortion with ride-hailing firm Uber. However, Duterte and Carpio denied this accusation.
Trillanes faced several cases during the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte after the chief executive revoked the amnesty of the senator. The cases were in relation with Oakwood mutiny in 2003 and the Manila Peninsula siege in 2007.
