Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is living up to his billing as President Rodrigo Duterte’s “kontrapelo.”

Trillanes has come forward to defend Pastor Joel Apolinario and his KAPA Community Ministry from the crackdown initiated by President Rodrigo Duterte on their investment scheme which Duterte called a “pyramid scam.”

In a Facebook post, Trillanes said Duterte has no authority to stop KAPA if it was true that Apolinario registered this as a “religious organization” and member contributions clearly labeled as “donations.” Trillanes said KAPA was protected from Duterte’s crackdown based on the “constitutional guarantee of religious freedom.”

Trillanes urges KAPA members to impeach, file class suit vs Digong: Pag nanalo, inyo kayamanan ni Duterte!

“Karapatan ng isang myembro na i-donate kahit lahat ng kanyang pera sa
kanyang simbahan. Kahit wala itong resibo at hindi ito pwede buwisan,”
said Trillanes.

“Kahit pa na mukha ngang Ponzi scheme ang pamamalakad ng KAPA, basta maliwanag sa mga myembro nito na kung sakaling hindi bumalik ang kanilang pera, hindi sila pwedeng magreklamo dahil nga, simula’t sapul ito ay kanilang ‘donation’ sa kanilang simbahan,” he added.

Trillanes said the government could not file a syndicated estafa against KAPA if there were no complainants.

“Nasaan na at magkano lahat ang mga nakumpiska na pera mula sa Kapa? May liquidation and distribution plan na ba para maibalik ang mga pera ng mga myembro?” said Trillanes.

He suggested that the government allow KAPA to operate for at least 30 days during the investigation.

“Para mabigyan ito ng pagkakataong isaoli ang mga naiiwang pera na hawak nila para sa kanilang myembro. Gayundin, sa lalong madaling panahon, gumawa ang gobyerno ng inventory ng mga nakuha nilang pera or property mula sa KAPA at gumawa ng distribution plan para sa pag distribute nito sa mga myembro ng KAPA,” said Trillanes.
