Duterte is to blame : Jolo bombings bec. of Duterte's decision to abrogate VFA with the US - Trillanes


One of the fiercest critic of the Duterte administration is pinning some blame on President Duterte for the recent Jolo, Sulu bombings.

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes blames the President for the scrapping of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) with the United States of America resulting to the weakening of the anti-terrorism campaign of the Armed of the Philippines (AFP).

“The twin bombings yesterday in Jolo prove that the AFP’s counterterrorism efforts have been crippled by the suspension of the VFA (thru US’ ISR ops),” he tweeted.

“Mr. duterte, this is on you,” the former Oakwood mutineer said.

As per reports atleast fourteen (14) people were killed and several others were injured when two powerful blasts ripped through a town plaza in Jolo.

Initial reports from the AFP said these were perpetuated by suicide bombers.

It might be remembered that last February, the President announced the Philippines’ pullout from the VFA agreement with the US. Prior to that, former Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief and now senator Ronaldo Dela Rosa’s US visa was cancelled by the US embassy in Manila.

But last June, the President decided to suspend the abrogation citing recent political and other developments in the region.
