Trillanes Nagsalita Na sa mga Kritiko: "Nagtraydor daw ako? Pwede ba, umayos kayo!"

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV answered the allegations about him that he committed treason when he had a meeting with some US politicians to discuss corruption and human rights issues in the Philippines.

“Nagtraydor daw ako sa bayan dahil nakipagusap ako kay US Sen. Marco Rubio kahit pa sinabi na nya mismo na PH-US alliance, corruption and human rights situation ang pinagusapan namin,” Trillanes said.

“Ano naman ngayon ang tawag sa mga protektor ng isang presidenteng pumatay at nagpapapatay ng mga Pilipino, mga bayani? Pwede ba, umayos kayo!” the senator said.

According to Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, it would be up to the DOJ to study what happen during the trip of Trillanes.

“‘Yan ay pag-aaralan ng Department of Justice, pag-aaralan ‘yan ng mga abogado ng ating Pangulo, sapagka’t ito rin po ay mga legal matters ‘no. Eh tayo naman ay kung ano iyong nararapat lang ay dapat lang,” Andanar said.

Meanwhile, Sen. Trillanes had confirmed that he met Senator Marco Rubio and other politicians but denied reports that he went to US to stop President Donald Trump from visiting the Philippines for the Asean Summit scheduled next month.

“To be clear, I did not try to stop the state visit of Pres. Trump since these things are carefully planned and cannot be stopped on the mere say so of a Philippine senator,” Trillanes said.

"Be assured that I pushed for the interests of our country. But let me emphasize that the interests of our country are not necessarily the same as the interests of Mr. Duterte.  I presented only factual information. Besides, you cannot fool the US government; they know what’s happening in our country,” he added.
