- Makati court has released its decision regarding the rebellion case of Sen. Antonio Trillanes
- The court has denied the plea filed by Sen. Trillanes
- Therefore, the arrest warrant against Trillanes remains
The Makati court upheld their decision to issue warrant of arrest against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV with regard to his rebellion case. KAMI learned that Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 150 had denied the plea filed by Trillanes to reverse their earlier decision.
As reported by CNN Philippines, Judge Elmo Alameda stated in a six-page decision that they uphold the legality of Proclamation No. 572 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte to void the amnesty given to Sen. Trillanes.
According to the report of The Manila Times, Trillanes failed to present an “original” copy of his application form when he applied for amnesty. In addition, the evidence Trillanes presented before the court was considered as “hearsay”, therefore, they cannot admit it.
As previously reported by KAMI, the same Makati court allowed Trillanes to travel abroad after posting P200,000 bail. Trillanes was headed to Europe and United States from Dec. 11, 2018 to Jan. 12, 2019 and Jan. 27 to Feb 10, 2019.
