DOJ panel confident they have a 'solid case' vs Trillanes & co.




They have their sights on former opposition senator Antonio Trillanes IV and several others for the crime of conspiracy to commit sedition. They find what they have as against them is strong.

The prosecutors of the Department of justice said they are very confident that they have a case against the former senator, who happens to be one of the fiercest critic of the President.



"We discussed all the evidence and we will not file cases against anyone if we don't have evidence," Senior Assistant State Prosecutor Olivia Laroza-Torrevillas said in a press briefing.

Trillanes and several others were accused by the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) before the Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court of manufacturing propaganda online against President Rodrigo Duterte  (Ang Totoong Narcolist) and the first family, weeks preceding the senatorial elections in May last year.

"We are only doing our jobs. We assured everybody if there is no evidence against you, do not worry the panel is fair, the DOJ is fair," Torrevillas said.

DOJ dismissed the cases of the other respondents including Vice President Leni Robredo and other opposition figures, said pieces of evidence including the testimony of whistleblower Joemel Advincula a.k.a. Bikoy during their preliminary investigation was their sole consideration in coming out with a resolution.



"We are only doing our jobs. We assured everybody if there is no evidence against you, do not worry the panel is fair, the DOJ is fair," Torrevillas said.
Aside from Trillanes, also charged were Peter Joemel Advincula, the man who introduced himself as "Bikoy" in the "Ang Totoong Narcolist" videos released during the 2019 election campaign period; Jonnel P. Sangalang, Yolanda Ong, Fr. Flaviano Villanueva, Fr. Albert E. Alejo, Vicente R. Romano III, film actor Joel Saracho, Eduardo Acierto, publicist Boom Enriquez, and a certain “Monique”.
The complaint alleged that Trillanes and the others are involved in "circulating malicious and scurrilous libels and fabricating evidence against him and his immediate family members, making it appear that the president and his family are engaged in a drug trade syndicate, with no other purpose but to inflict an act of hate or revenge against the president and his immediate family members."
