Court Rejects Trillanes Arrest but Upholds Pres. Duterte's Proclamation

The motion of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to issue an arrest warrant against Sen. Antonio Trillanes was denied by the Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 148 but upheld Pres. Duterte's proclamation voiding Trillanes amnesty for rebellion, according to prosecutor Judge Andres Soriano.



Acting Prosecutor General Richard Fadullon and the Makati Prosecutor's Office told the media that Makati City RTC Branch 148 junked the motion to arrest Trillanes for his coup d'etat case after his amnesty was voided by Pres. Duterte last August 31, 2018.

Despite the denied motion of the DOJ, the Makati RTC Branch 148, upheld Presidential Proclamation No. 572 which voided the previous administration's grant of amnesty to Trillanes.

Trillanes earlier paid P200,000 for his temporary freedom on his rebellion case at Branch 150 of the Makati RTC. Branch 150 issued a warrant of arrest against Trillanes on September 25, but set the bail at P200,000.

Trillanes was involved in the Oakwood mutiny in July 2003, the Marines standoff on February 2006, and the Manila Peninsula incident in 2007 against President Gloria Arroyo.

Trillanes and fellow Magdalo soldiers were jailed but freed when they were granted amnesty by former President Benigno Aquino.
