Makati court junked rebellion case vs. Trillanes, others in 2011

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Wednesday presented to the media a copy of the court order dismissing the rebellion charge filed against him and several others in connection with the November 2007 Manila Peninsula siege.

The dismissal order, dated September 7, 2011, was signed by Judge Elmo Alameda of Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 150.



Trillanes presented the document to show that he has no pending case and therefore cannot be arrested despite the order of President Rodrigo Duterte.

At a press conference, Trillanes, a staunch critic of the administration, said he will challenge the legality of Duterte's Proclamation 572, which voids the amnesty extended to him in 2010, before the Supreme Court. —KBK, GMA News
