President Duterte won’t send former Customs chief Nicanor Faeldon back to jail even if his amnesty is revoked, according to an opposition lawmaker.

Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano sneered at Faeldon’s offer to go jail if Duterte nullifies his amnesty similar to that of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. The ex-Marine captain was among the beneficiaries of the amnesty given by the past administration for involvement in two botched mutinies.

“Admitting that the amnesty was void without thinking that you are putting your co-benificiaries at risk of being detained for a lifetime while you are certain that Duterte will let you go scot-free,” Alejano tweeted.

“You are saving yourself at the expense of others..tsktsk,” he said.

Faeldon, a known Duterte ally, resigned as Customs commissioner in August 2017 amid allegations of incompetence to stop drug smuggling activities. But he was given another government post as deputy administrator of the Office of Civil Defense.
