Makati Judge Elmo Alameda decided to move to April the resumption of the rebellion trial of former senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

In his order, the magistrate granted the appeal of the prosecution to reset the hearing on April 20 despite the objection of lawyer Reynaldo Bustos Robles, the legal counsel of Trillanes.

Assistant State Prosecutor Gino Paulo Santiago was supposed to present a witness during the hearing scheduled hearing on Monday (Jan. 27).

“There being no available witnesses to testify for the prosecution, Pros. Santiago moved for a resetting,” the magistrate recounted in his order.

“Despite the ibjection of Atty. Robles, the court is inclined to grant the prosecution’s oral motion in the exercise of its sound discretion invoking the interest of substantial justice,” Alameda stated.

Alameda is handling the case concerning the senator’s participation in the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege.

The case got revived after President Rodrigo Duterte declared as void the amnesty given to Trillanes over his involvement in the siege and the 2003 Oakwood mutiny.
