Ralph Recto: Revocation of Antonio Trillanes’ amnesty not ‘right course’ of action

Sep 7, 2018 @ 14:56

Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto said President Rodrigo Duterte’s revocation of Senator Antonio Trillanes’ amnesty is not “the right course” of action.

Malacañang on September 4 announced President Rodrigo Duterte’s order in an advertisement on The Manila Times.

The Batangas politiko said Trillanes should be charged in court instead if he broke any law.

“If he had committed offenses after Peninsula, if he had broken any law since, then the right course is to charge him, and not to nullify an amnesty that he applied for, recommended by the military, granted to him by the President, and concurred in by Congress,” Recto said.

“He should be granted every opportunity to challenge the revocation of the amnesty in complete freedom,” he added.
