President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has declared void ab initio (from the beginning) the amnesty granted to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for having failed to comply with the minimum requirements necessary to qualify under Amnesty Proclamation.
It can be recalled that then LTSG. Trillanes was granted amnesty by then President Benigno Aquino in 2010.
Records show however that despite the amnesty grant, Trillanes never admitted his guilt and failed to apply for amnesty as mandated by law.
In this regard, President Duterte issued Proclamation 572 revoking the amnesty grant to the senator.
The proclamation was dated August 31, 2018.
A video of a news story claiming that Trillanes has filed for amnesty in 2011 however surfaced in an apparent defense to the senator.
