Pres. Duterte Accuses Trillanes' Mom & Janet Napoles for Alleged Anomalous Purchase of Kevlar Helmets

The tough-talking President of the Philippines who is now in Thailand has accused the the mother of controversial lawmaker, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles as the ones behind the supposed anomalous purchase of Kevlar helmets.

Pres. Rody Duterte revealed the latest expose against Trillanes during the President's speech at the inauguration of his son, Davao City Vice Mayor Sebastian Duterte on Friday, identifying once again one of his fiercest critics who was allegedly involved in graft and corruption at the PMA.

Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "If there was something wrong, if there was money there, kila Trillanes ‘yon, hindi sa amin. Ang No. 1 na graft and corruption diyan noon sa PMA, ‘yung tatay niya pati ‘yung nanay niya," Duterte said.

"Remember ‘yung Kevlar? It’s a helmet na matigas na hindi matamaan ng . . . kung bala hindi masyado maka-penetrate. That’s Kevlar. Ang nag-deliver noon ang nanay ni Trillanes pati si Napoles. ‘Yan ang totoo diyan," he added.

President Duterte's statement against Trillanes and Napoles re-surface anew on social media after the controversial incident involving some critics of the President defending the Recto 22 victims, particularly Trillanes giving misleading information to the public.

Last July 2013, the Inquirer broke the story on the P10-billion pork barrel scam allegedly masterminded by businesswoman Napoles.

Napoles and her husband, retired Marine Maj. Jaime Napoles, were also charged with graft and malversation in connection with the alleged anomalous purchase of Kevlar helmets worth P3.8 million.

Pres. Duterte did not only accused Trillanes on the said issue  but the President responded with a chilling revelations.

The President in September 2018 accused the mother of Trillanes of allegedly entering into business transactions with the Philippine Navy when the senator and his father were still in the military service. This was a clear case of conflict of interest, Duterte said.

The veteran lawmaker Trillanes has denied Duterte’s allegation and bared that his mother was suffering from advanced Parkinson’s Disease.
