Trillanes files affidavit to bolster claim that he applied for amnesty
Embattled opposition Sen. Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV on Monday submitted to the Makati regional trial court an affidavit by the military officer who administered his oath when he applied for amnesty.
The lawmaker filed the affidavit of Col. Josefa Berbigal to branches 148 and 150, who attested that Trillanes indeed applied for amnesty.
President Duterte issued Proclamation No. 572 voiding Trillanes’ amnesty due to the latter’s supposed failure to meet minimal requirements.
Also, Trillanes submitted to the courts the certificate of amnesty he received in 2011, as proof that he went through the process when applying for amnesty.
