Taking shortcuts? Calida wants to head to CA to appeal Trillanes ruling
The Office of the Solicitor General would go straight to the Court of Appeals to challenge a Makati judge’s decision denying the government’s motion for the issuance of a warrant of arrest against opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV.
Presidential spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo revealed this a day after Makati regional trial court Judge Andres Soriano denied the Department of Justice’s urgent motion against Trillanes.
“We will not file a motion for reconsideration (before the Makati RTC). The Solicitor General will directly go to the Court of Appeals, and even all the way to the Supreme Court. Our theory from the very start is that the President can void any amnesty granted to anyone, and this was upheld by the court,” Panelo said in a press briefing.
