Pwede mag-piyansa! Court orders Trillanes’ arrest over ‘Ang Totoong Narco List’ videos
Former senator Antonio Trillanes IV has been ordered arrested by a Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court (MTC) over a conspiracy to commit sedition case concerning the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos.
QC MTC Branch 138 issued the warrant against Trillanes after the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed the case against him and 10 of his co-accused on Feb. 10.
The case is bailable with the bail set at P10,000.
Aside from Trillanes, those also accused in the case are Police Sr. Supt. Eduardo Acierto, Peter Joemel Advincula alias Bikoy, Joel Saracho, Jonnel Sangalang, Yolanda Villanueva Ong, Vicente Romano III, Fr. Flaviano Villanueva, and Fr. Albert Alejo.
The case stemmed from the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” which featured the hooded Bikoy, who was later revealed to be Advincula, which accused Duterte family members as being involved the narcotics trade.
The Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) filed the complaint before the DOJ using the testimony of Advincula.
Advincula claimed members of the opposition were behind the videos which were meant to discredit and destabilize the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.
