- The opposition senator has commented regarding the issue
President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened to subpoena the 84-year-old mother of Senator Antonio Trillanes, Estelita. KAMI learned that the President insisted that there were irregularities when Estelita was handling the supplies of Philippine Navy in the past.
According to a report by the GMA News, President Duterte said that the government will initiate an investigation and will bring it to the court.
“We will initiate an investigation kagaya mo and I will subpoena your mother sa ayaw mo’t sa hindi. Baka sabihin mong walang power, there is. We also have the contempt power but we have to go to court,” Duterte said.
Duterte also accused Trillanes of having a special treatment during his time in the Philippine Military Academy (PMA).
“This braggart does not stop. The PMAers know this. His father would bring him to a room and feed him,” Duterte said.
“During the grueling training at the PMA, his father would excuse him,” he added.
However, Trillanes responded to the accusations of President Duterte.
“The problem with Duterte is that he can’t handle me so it’s my mother who’s sick that he’s turning his ire on. Bring it on, do your worst while I count the days,” Trillanes said.
“But up to now, he has yet to show even a shred of evidence to prove his baseless allegations. Now, Duterte is threatening to subpoena my mother,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Duterte said three months ago that they were “investigating quietly” over the deals and transactions of Trillanes’ parents.
