Eh ano ngayon?! Trillanes: Sabio's withdrawal of case vs. Duterte won’t affect ICC case

The complaint filed against President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in the International Criminal Court (ICC) on the alleged lapses in the country's ongoing relentless anti-illegal drug campaign just hit a complete snag when  Atty. Jude Sabio withdrew his complaint personally.

Just as it puts focus on the President of the Philippines being finally vindicated by the harassment it has brought about, it also point to one of his staunchest critics- former senator Antonio Trillanes.

The former senator said the personal withdrawal of Sabio will not affect the case filed against President Duterte before the ICC.

In a statement he sent to reporters he enumerates that the action done by lawyer Sabio has no bearing to the ongoing case before the ICC.

· The withdrawal had no effect because ICC has different process than our justice system.
· The witnesses who testified in the communication filed before the ICC were Arturo Lascanas and Edgar Matobato. Sabio only served as their lawyer.

· Even the ICC will accept the withdrawal of Sabio. There were others who filed a second case. Trillanes said that he along with former Rep. Gary Alejano filed a case before the ICC in 2017, adding that it became the basis of the start of a preliminary investigation on February 2018.
Trillanes in the same statement reminded media that the result of the ICC preliminary investigation is soon to be released.

Ang paggapang kay Sabio ng mga Duterte forces ay isang maliwanang na indication na natutuliro na sila sa ICC case na malapit na lumabas,’’ Trillanes said.
