Dept of Justice summons Trillanes over kidnapping raps





Former opposition senator and now private citizen Antonio Trillanes IV is being summoned by the Departmentof Justice (DOJ) in relation to the kidnapping with serious illegal detention charges filed against him and 4 others last August by the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG).

DOJ's Assistant State Prosecutor Gino Paolo S. Santiago directed Trillanes in a subpoena dated September 16, during the preliminary investigation on the case on October 11 at 2 p.m.


"You are hereby warned that failure on your part to comply with the subpoena shall be considered as a waiver of your right for the investigation to verify and confirm the allegations of your complaint and the case shall be considered submitted for resolution based on the evidence on record," the subpoena read.

The complaint was from the filed charges of Guillermina Barrido, also known as Guillermina Arcillas.
In her complaint, she alleges that:
-       she was kidnapped and detained from December 6 to 21, 2016 and placed in a convent to force her to sign a ready-made affidavit maligning President Rodrigo Duterte.;

-       she was shuttled between the Convent of Cannussian Sisters in Makati City to the Holy Spirit Convent in Quezon City for two weeks;
-       She names Trillanes, Fr. Albert Alejo, lawyer Jude Sabio and a certain Sister Ling of the Cannussian Sisters convent in the charge sheet along with several John and Jane Does; &
-       the sworn statement against the Duterte family she was coerced to sign was originally executed in 2017.

“It is clear from the foregoing that herein respondents, maliciously and intentionally put the complainant under detention for 14 days in order to force her to do something against her will," Police Lt. Col. Domingo D. Soriano as per in the charge sheet.
Trillanes and Fr.Alejo, in separate statements, has categorically denied the charges against them.
