Sara Duterte: I'll give away P121M if Trillanes can show where it is, prove it's illegal

Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Thursday said she will give P121 million to the public if Senator Antonio Trillanes IV can show where that money is and if he can prove that it is illegal.

"If Trillanes can show where my alleged Php 121 million is right now and how it became illegal, kunin natin at ibigay ko sa inyo lahat," she said in a statement.

Trillanes earlier revived the issue of President Rodrigo Duterte's bank accounts, which he said amounted to P2 billion, in an attempt to disprove that the chief executive is not poor.

He also released details of alleged bank accounts of Duterte's family.

Trillanes showed a list of bank accounts named under Duterte’s children—Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte with P104 million, Sara with P121 million, and Sebastian Duterte with P143 million.

"Wala akong postura labas sa kung ano ang nakikita ng lahat. I never pretended to be what I am not," Sara said.

"I read the press statement of Trillanes and the challenge to answer the allegations was addressed to the President. Let us allow PRD to decide on how he wants this issue to go down," she added. 

Trillanes also claimed that Duterte’s common-law wife Cielito “Honeylet” Salvador Avanceña has P188 million and Samuel Cang Uy, one of Duterte’s campaign donors, has P118 million in their respective bank accounts.

Malacañang has dismissed Trillanes' revival of the old issue as "part of the noise of political landscape." —KG, GMA News
