Watch: Full coverage! Media witnessed Trillanes file application for amnesty


The media coverage that surrounded Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s filing of application for amnesty disputes President Rodrigo Duterte’s claim that he never applied for it in the first place.

A video uploaded by YouTube user Bing Formento showed Trillanes filing his application for amnesty before the Department of National Defense on January 5, 2011 as reporters and cameramen looked on.

The senator, a former Navy lieutenant, took part in the 2003 Oakwood mutiny and the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege.

Documentation of Trillanes’ application for amnesty surfaced after Duterte revoked the privilege given to him.

Proclamation No. 572 signed by Duterte on August 31 stated that the amnesty given to Trillanes by then-President Benigno Aquino III was void from the start because of his failure to comply with the “minimum requirements to qualify under the amnesty proclamation.”

Duterte cited a certification from the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, which said there is no available copy of Trillanes’ application for amnesty.

The senator, who took part in the 2003 Oakwood mutiny and the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege, also “never expresses his guilt” for his crimes, the proclamation read.
