Prosecutor General Benedicto Malcontento on Monday (Feb. 17) said he has yet picked the government lawyers who prosecute former senator Antonio Trillanes IV and his co-accused for conspiracy to commit sedition.

“We still have to think about it,” he said.

Malcontento disclosed this even after the Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court (MeTC) Branch 138 has been picked to handle the case and has already issued arrest warrants against the accused.

The case was filed before the MeTC after a panel of prosecutors chaired by Senior Assistant Prosecutor Olivia Torrevillas found probable cause to indict the accused.

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.

In the information filed before the QC MeTC, the defendants are accused of having wronged President Rodrigo Duterte ”by circulating malicious and scurrilous libels and fabricating evidence against him and his immediate family members, making it appear that the President and his family are engaged in a drug trade syndicate, with no other purpose but to inflict an act of hate or revenge against the President of the Philippines and his immediate family members.”
