Charges for grave threats filed vs Trillanes

(Eagle News)–Charges for grave threats have been filed against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV before a Pasay court.

The charges stem from an incident in the Senate in May 2018 in which Trillanes, Labor Undersecretary Jacinto Paras said, threatened to “Finish him off (yayariin).”

“Ang lakas ng loob mo. Hindi magtatagal ang amo mo. Matatapos din yan,” Trillanes said, according to Paras.

Paras is also a complainant in an inciting to sedition case filed against Trillanes after he allegedly encouraged soldiers to shoot at President Rodrigo Duterte.

Trillanes, who has just returned from a trip to Europe, is out on bail for rebellion charges stemming from his participation in the Oakwood mutiny in 2003.

Prosecutors have said the earlier dismissal of those charges no longer held after the amnesty granted to Trillanes for that crime was revoked by Proclamation No. 572.
