Trillanes is not politically-oppressed: Roque

The “Paawa effect” will not work.

MalacaƱang thru Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in an interview with Presidential Communications Operations Office Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson, said that opposition senator Antonio Trillanes is not being oppressed by the President.

Anong political oppression ang sinasabi nila? Wala nga tigil ang mga banat nya kay President (What political oppression are they talking about? He is relentless in attacking the President),” Roque said.

“Siya ang patunay na gumagana ang demokrasya sa Pilipinas dahil walang tigil ang banat nya sa President at sa pamilya ng President. So walang katuturan yan (He is proof that democracy is working in the Philippines because of his relentless attack against the President and the family of the President. So it is not true),” the Presidential Spokesperson added.

Roque states that all government institutions are well functioning as can be attested by the senator’s filing of a petition at the Supreme Court questioning Proclamation 572 that declared void ab initio (void from the very beginning) Trillanes amnesty granted by former president Benigno Aquino III.

Roque, defended the proclamation he clarifies that the amnesty was not revoked, it was declared void ab initio.

“So wala tayong ninire-revoke. Ang sinasabi lang natin hindi nagkaroon ng bisa yan. Kinakailangan na ibalik sa kulungan si Trillanes (We are not revoking anything. What we are saying is it (amnesty) did not take effect. Trillanes should be put back to jail),” Roque said.

The opposition senator as explained by Roque has not only failed to comply with the minimum requirements of the granting of amnesty, but also has violated the terms and conditions of the amnesty.

“Walang aplikasyon na nahanap ang gobyerno sa official file. Walang tunay na pag-aamin sa krimen nya ginawa doon sa Oakwood mutiny at saka walang pagsisi at pagtigil sa paglabag sa batas ng pagtawag na dapat ang military at hindi suportahan ang tinalaga ng taumbayan na president yan po ay violation din ng kanyang amnesty,”

(The government found no application in official file. There is no admission to the crimes he committed in Oakwood mutiny and there was no repentance and no stopping in violating laws by calling on military not to support the elected President. That is violation of his amnesty.)

Roque also said that the executive is after the accountability when President Duterte voided Trillanes amnesty.

Palagi ko sinasabi na kahit sino ka man, kahit gaano ka kasikat, kung may ginagawa kang masama, eh magkakaroon ng pagkakataon na makahabol ang pananagutan (I’ve been saying regardless of who you are, even if you are popular, if you committed wrongdoing, there will be a time that you will be made accountable), he said.
