Erin Tañada: Arrest order meant to ‘silence’ Trillanes
Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada said the order of the Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) judge to arrest Senator Antonio Trillanes on September 25 had no basis.
The Quezon politiko said Trillanes’ case was already dismissed, therefore, there is no crime being committed.
Tañada said the arrest was an attempt to “silence” Trillanes.
“Although I respect the decision of the court, I disagree with the decision of the judge that a warrant of arrest should be issued against Senator Trillanes,” he said.
“What is the basis for the issuance? There is no more crime because the case was dismissed,” he added.
