Durog kung durog! Trillanes: Duterte wants me killed or jailed like De Lima

Senator Antonio Trillanes has claimed that President Rodrigo Duterte wants him either killed or jailed.

In an exclusive interview with Agence France Presse published Thursday (September 14), Trillanes called Duterte “a sociopath” with the “mindset of a hitman.”

“Duterte actually ordered a hit on me. He wants me killed. Aside from the fact he wants cases fabricated so I can be put away (in jail) like Senator De Lima,” he said.

Senator Leila de Lima, one of the President’s staunchest critics, is now detained in Camp Crame over drug trafficking charges.

She said the filing of cases was politically motivated.

Duterte had warned to “destroy” Trillanes after the senator accused him and his family members of corruption.

“I will destroy him or he will destroy me,” Duterte told reporters.

Trillanes had accused Duterte of having more than P2 billion worth of transactions in his bank accounts.

He also claimed that the President’s son, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, is involved in smuggling.
