Arrest Trillanes – Makati court

By: September 25,2018 - 03:07 PM


The Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 150 has ordered the arrest of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege.

Trillanes is facing a case for rebellion before Branch 150 Judge Elmo Alameda. However, it was dismissed following the granting of amnesty by then President Benigno Aquino III.

Early this month, President Rodrigo Duterte issued Proclamation 572 revoking the amnesty given to Trillanes for being void ab initio or void from the beginning.

Proclamation 572 says Trillanes failed to submit an application form and that he did not admit his guilt in the crimes covered by the amnesty.

With the amnesty revocation, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed an ex-parte motion seeking a warrant of arrest and a hold departure order against Trillanes. The DOJ also asked the court to resume the trial with the prosecution presenting its evidence.

The DOJ said that with the amnesty declared as void from the beginning, the dismissal of the case is also void.

In the order issued Tuesday, the court ordered Trillanes to post P200,000 bail for his temporary liberty.

“Bail for temporary liberty of the accused is fixed at P200,000 per order dated February 16, 2010,” read the court’s order reviving its order issued prior to the dismissal of the case in 2011.

At the same time, the court issued a hold departure order against the Senator.

The court said Trillanes is prohibited “from leaving the Philippines during the pendency of the case without prior permission from this court.”
