DOJ's Motion for Trillanes Arrest Denied 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. Rody Duterte's proclamation voiding the former rebel soldier's amnesty, according to prosecutor who announced the decision of 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 Aquino administration's grant of amnesty to Trillanes.

Sen. Antonio Trillanes was arrested nearly a month ago for rebellion, on orders of the Makati RTC Branch 150 over the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege but he was able to post a bail on the same day.

The Department of Justice earlier asked the 2 Makati courts to order Trillanes' arrest and bar his departure from the country, arguing that the nullification of his amnesty meant that all cases against the senator must be pursued.
