Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is set to be arraigned at the Regional Trial Court here in Davao City on Tuesday, January 15, for the libel charges filed against him.
Unconfirmed reports showed that Trillanes would be personally appearing before Judge Melinda Alconcel-Dayanghirang of the Davao City Regional Trial Court Branch 54 for his arraignment.
Last December, Judge Dayanghirang released a total of 4 warrants of arrest against Trilanes for separate libel complaints filed by presidential son Paolo Duterte and presidential son-in-law Manases Carpio in September of last year.
Trillanes readily posted bail.
In his Facebook post Monday afternoon, Paolo Duterte asked about a “tomato-throwing” event on Tuesday.
It’s not clear if the young Duterte is refering to Trillanes and his scheduled arraignment.
Trillanes is expected to plea not guilty during his arraignment.
