Surprise! Davao court orders Trillanes’ arrest for libel
A court in Davao City on Friday issued a warrant of arrest against opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV in connection with the libel case filed by former Davao City vice mayor and presidential son Paolo Duterte.
In an order, regional trial court branch 54 Judge Melinda Alconcel-Dayanghirang set the bail at P24,000.
Paolo Duterte accused Trillanes of maligning him and his family in a radio interview in Cebu.
Trillanes allegedly accused the younger Duterte and brother-in-law Manases Carpio of corruption and extortion involving Uber and other companies regulated by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.
