Trillanes confident inciting to sedition raps will be dismissed
Embattled opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Thursday expressed confidence that the inciting to sedition charges filed against him before the Pasay City Prosecutor’s Office will be dismissed.
“He just made an allegation. Madali ito. This will be a no-brainer for any objective and fair-minded prosecutor so I expect that this case will be dismissed,” Trillanes said after he filed his counter-affidavit.
Pasay assistant city prosecutor Reynaldo Ticyado received the counter affidavit from Trillanes and directed the complainants led by Presidential Anti-Corruption Commissioner Atty. Manuelito Luna to file a reply by November 8.
The complaint was filed by former lawmaker and currently Labor Undersecretary Jacinto V. Paras and lawyers Nasser Marohomsalic, Manuelito Luna, Eligio Mallari and Alvaro Bernabe.
Trillanes allegedly urged the military to take up arms against President Duterte for alleged corruption.
Also, he uttered supposedly seditious remarks after the issuance of Proclamation 572 that voided the amnesty granted to him during the previous administration.
