Is Senator Antonio Trillanes Untouchable?
By Alon Calinao Dy: Senator Antonio Trillanes has been very vocal that President Rodrigo Duterte is an evil leader. At the start, he accused Duterte for having millions of pesos on his BPI bank account.
After that, Trillanes did not stop there. he spent so much money on TV ads using children condemning President Duterte a few days before the actual day of May 2016 election.
Now, Trillanes and Sen. Leila De Lima came back with a witness named Edgar Matobato who believed a member of Davao Death Squad (DDS).
Reports say that the witness Matobato was under the protection of Senator Trillanes, but many people who watched at the Senate hearing did not believe that Matobato was a credible witness.
Now the question: is Senator Trillanes really untouchable? I mean many Filipinos said that he was such a big disgrace to all Filipinos all over the world.
But if it's true he is spreading stories that are "lies and fabrications", why Trillanes can still continue to spread with these fabricated stories? Who are powerful people protecting and behind trillanes? Is there someone who can stop him?
I guess it is the duty of every Filipino to protect and support the integrity of current administration and the name of our country. Trillanes could be untouchable because nobody in the senate would fight against him, but it is not right to have a "fake" witness that would eventually destroy the reputation of our country.
