Former opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has aired his side over the recent kidnapping and serious illegal detention complaint filed by the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG).
KAMI learned that Trillanes denied the claims that he detained and bribed a certain Guillermina Lalic Barrido alias Guillermina Arcillas in 2016.
In a report by the GMA News Online (author Amita Legaspi), Trillanes claimed that he never met Barrido.
“Never ko na-meet ‘yan si Guillerma Arcillas or Barrido. Sa’n ka makakita na pari at madre daw ang kasama ko sa pagkidnap at sa kumbento pa daw siya dinetain. Bukod pa d’yan, 2016 pa raw siya kinidnap pero ngayon lang nagfile ng kaso,” Trillanes said.
“Ang impormasyon ko d’yan ay isa siyang nagboluntaryong magtestigo laban daw kay Duterte pero butas-butas ang kuwento at nanghihingi diumano ng pera kapalit ng kanyang salaysay kaya hindi tinanggap bilang testigo,” he added.

Barrido claimed that she was detained by the respondents for “14 days” and was forced to do something against her will.
