Para may drama! Trillanes likely keeping amnesty docs, says Roque


By Prince Golez

Malacañang has raised the possibility that Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has in his possession a receiving copy of his amnesty application form, but chose not to present it yet to create political drama.

“Baka nasa kanya lang, ayaw niya lang ilabas kung meron nga,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr. told reporters covering President Duterte on Wednesday.

Roque urged Trillanes to show his original amnesty application papers to put an end to entire brouhaha surrounding the revocation of amnesty granted to him in 2010.

“Ganun lang ka simple ‘yun. Pero syempre gusto niya ng drama drama pa,” the Palace official said.

Citing the best evidence rule principle, Roque said, “The best evidence says that he has to produce the original, and if the original cannot be produced, prove the circumstance why the original cannot be produced.”
