Pres. Duterte's Advice to Paolo Duterte & Atty. Carpio, Challenges Trillanes to Prove His Case


The tough-talking President of the Republic of the Philippines, Pres. Rody Duterte revealed in one of his speech that if he has an advice to his son Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte and son-in-law Atty. Manases "Mans" Carpio, he would want the two to appear before teh Senate if invited to the hearings on alleged corruption of the BOC.


Pres. Duterte's advice to his sons have some twists, as a veteran trial lawyer for so many years, he advice both Paolo and Mans Carpio can always invoke their right to silence, and the hearing would be a futile exercise.

The President said the two can even go to court if they are cited for contempt for failure to answer questions in the Senate investigation.

Ako, ang advice ko kay Pulong? “Punta ka doon, then pagdating mo and he questions, sabihin mo lang na, I will not answer you, I’m invoking my right of silence kasi nung eleksyon pahindi pa Presidente ang tatay kobinibira mo na kami (For me my advice to Pulong? Go there, if you’re there and he (Senator Antonio Trillanes) questions, just say, I will not answer you, I’m invoking my right of silence because since election, before my father became president, you were already hitting us),” Duterte said when asked by reporters what advice he would give Paolo and Carpio if they are invited by the Senate.

Pres. Duterte added further "Ang isagot sa iyo, 'I will refuse to answer your questions because it will intend to incriminate me'," Duterte stressed.

Pres. Rody Duterte also pointed out Sen. Trillanes also assumed for the longest time that Paolo and Carpio are behind the so-called Davao linked to BOC's smuggling and 'tara' system.

The 72-year-old Pres. Duterte also called Sen. Trillanes as idiot with an IQ rate of six, he also dared the senator to get his own evidence instead of relying on other people's statements.

"So if you want evidence, Mr. Trililing, do not get it from the mouth of other people. Go somewhere else. Yung tinitira mo, gusto mo ring ipitin. Hindi ka abogado, hindi ka marunong niyan (Those you are hitting, you also want to pin down. You are not a lawyer, you do not know about it),” he said.

Pres. Duterte explained that Trillanes cannot punish a person or take any inference when a person invokes a constitutional right. The controversial senator is just on fishing expedition according to Pres. Duterte.

Trillanes should not get information from someone’s mouth if he wants to know something. “Di maghanap ka kung saan mo hanapin. Kung totoo talaga ‘yan (Then you look for it. If that is really true),” he added.
