    MANILA, Philippines — Senators allied with the Liberal Party (LP) have once again denied having plans to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.

    According to LP President Sen. Francis Pangilinan, the president just wants to divert the public’s attention away from the issues he is facing.

    “Ang concern natin dito ay ang conspiracy na nauwi sa pagpapalusot ng P6.5 billion na shabu sa BOC kasabwat ang mga drug syndicate. Ang conspiracy na iyon ang dapat ipinapaliwanag ng gobyerno,” said Pangilinan.

    (Our concern is the conspiracy that resulted in the entry of the P6.5 billion worth of shabu at the BOC in conspiracy with drug syndicates. And that conspiracy must be explained by the government.)

    For Sen. Bam Aquino, Liberal Party members have nothing to do with any effort to oust the president, adding that Duterte may just be making up the ouster plot issue.

    “Gaya ng kaniyang mga paratang sa bank account ni Senator Trillanes, he probably also made that up. Gawa-gawa lang po iyan. Hindi po totoo (Just like with the bank account of Senator Trillanes, he probably also made that up.  It’s just made up. These are not true.),” he said.

    Aquino also noted that criticisms against members of the opposition are not a good sign.

    “Secretary Aguirre has even created a group against what he calls the enemies of the state, including what he calls the ‘yellowtards’. This is already a political persecution,” said the senator.

    Meanwhile, according to the former chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and now senator, Panfilo Lacson, any plot to oust the president is impossible to succeed.

    “Pwedeng may nag-iisip, pero will they succeed? Ang 82% na approval at trust rating ng Pangulo, mukhang mahirap mangyari ang ma-oust siya through either people power or… military naman, unlikely because he’s so close with the military,” said Lacson.

    (It’s possible that someone is thinking about it, but will they succeed? With the 82% approval and trust rating of the president, it would be difficult to oust him through people power or…military is unlikely to do that because he’s so close to the military.)

    Solicitor General Jose Calida initially divulged that some groups and personalities are colluding to destabilize the president. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

    Trillanes offshore accounts being used for destabilization ops

    MANILA, Philippines — A country against money laundering allegedly gave the information to President Rodrigo Duterte regarding the offshore accounts of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

    This was revealed by the chief executive in an interview on the state-run television, PTV last Friday night.

    Trillanes allegedly closed some of his accounts and that the hidden funds were possibly used for destabilization efforts against the Duterte administration, such as organizing anti-government protests and paying witnesses like retired SPO3 Arthur Lascaña and self-confessed hitman, Edgar Matobato.
    “Based on analysis, the funds being laundered by Trillanes and his group may not be for their personal use, but rather, it is being used for their cause and possibly to destabilize government by paying for witnesses and funding destabilization operations,” said President Duterte.
    The chief executive added that in the future, he will release more evidence regarding the said offshore accounts.

    On the other hand, Trillanes said in a statement that Duterte’s claims are just new rumors to divert the public’s attention from the investigation regarding the president’s billions of pesos worth of hidden wealth. — UNTV News & Rescue

    Ombudsman probe on the alleged hidden wealth of PRRD can be used in the impeachment complaint – Sen. Trillanes

    MANILA, Philippines — Senator Antonio Trillanes IV seemed to have found an ally in his allegations against the president.

    “I feel vindicated. I am happy that the Ombudsman confirmed my allegations are true, that billions of pesos went into the bank accounts of Duterte,” said Trillanes.

    This comes after the Office of the Ombudsman confirmed that the documents submitted by the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) are similar to the ones submitted by the senator. These documents allegedly show the hidden bank accounts of President Rodrigo Duterte.

    In an interview,  Overall Deputy Ombudsman Arthur Carandang said they received documents containing bank transactions from the intelligence gathering conducted by AMLC.

    The senator believes the results of the Ombudsman’s investigation could be used in the filing of an impeachment complaint against Mr. Duterte.

    “He has no immunity from investigations, so at the end of all this, after the preliminary investigation, once it concludes, not only will he face charges before the Sandiganbayan or other courts, these documents can also be used as the basis for an impeachment complaint,” said Trillanes.

    Malacañang, on the other hand, said they trust that the ombudsman will treat the issue fairly.

    “Like he [President Rodrigo Duterte] has said, the ombudsman has been continually investigating him and it is for them to really…in other words, it’s not anything new.  He respects their internal processes, if at all, if they truly have substantial evidence, we trust their impartiality on the matter,” said Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella.

    It can be recalled that Senator Trillanes initially accused Mr. Duterte during the campaign period of having deposits and credits reaching almost 2 billion pesos. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue
