Bilis ng karma! Duterte reminds Trillanes of ‘Golden Rule’ over voided amnesty
President Rodrigo Duterte has quoted the “Golden Rule” to explain why he ordered Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to be stripped off his amnesty.
In an interview Saturday (September 8), Duterte let it slip that Trillanes was his “target.”
“Bakit tinarget ko siya? Well, I only have one word. Pareho man tayo na nagtatrabaho lang rin. I will just quote, correct me if I’m wrong, ‘Do not do unto others what you would not want them to do to you,’” he said upon arriving at the Davao International Airport from his official visits to Israel and Jordan.
Pressed to explain why he targeted Trillanes, Duterte took his statement back.
“Hindi ko siya tinarget. May nakita si Calida na mali,” he said, referring to Solicitor General Jose Calida.
Duterte said it was Calida who recommended that Trillanes’ amnesty be voided because of his alleged failure to comply with particular documents.
