VP Leni, bishops cleared of sedition charges over alleged plot to oust PRRD

On the destabilization plot concerning the Bikoy’s “Ang totoong Narcolist” has just turned into a full blown case against those critics of the Duterte administration.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has formally filed criminal charges of conspiracy to commit sedition against former opposition senator Antonio Trillanes IV and several others before the Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court in connection with their allegations linking President Rodrigo Duterte to the illegal drug trade.

But the DOJ cleared Vice President Leni Robredo and 4 bishops of sedition charges over an alleged plot to overthrow President Rodrigo Duterte's administration.

Along with those cleared with the Vice President are Archbishop Socrates Villegas, Bishops Pablo Virgilio David, Honesto Ongtioco, and Teodoro Bacani, along with Senators Risa Hontiveros and Leila de Lima, former Sen. Bam Aquino, and other opposition figures.

It was a sigh of relief for the Robredo camp saying the development "is a definitive condemnation of the fabricated accusations and trumped-up charges" brought against her.
"We hope that this decisive conclusion by the panel, which it discusses thoroughly in its 51-page resolution, puts an end to this campaign of lies against the Vice President," her spokesperson Barry Gutierrez said.

Among those charged with Trillanes are the following: 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 alleges 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."
