Tama naman: Calida backs declaration of Trillanes as persona non grata in Davao


Solicitor General Jose Calida believes Senator Antonio Trillanes IV deserves being declared as persona non grata in Davao City.

“I think there is basis for that,” Calida said.

Trillanes, who has been a staunch critic of President Duterte, has been declared persona non grata along with Filipino-American businesswoman Loida Nicolas-Lewis by the Davao City local government.

Davao City Vice Mayor Bernard Al-Ag said the Davao City council made the declaration during a regular session recently.

The council took into account the senator’s statements made last year and his pronouncements made in his speaking engagements abroad describing Davao City negatively.

Despite this, the local government had assured Trillanes will not be banned from entering the city despite the persona non grata status.
