Libu-libong suspected EJKs hindi malutas, ‘pag oposisyun dali-dali: Trillanes

Security & Defense

“Ang libu-libong homicides under investigation na suspected EJKs ay hanggang ngayon ay hindi nila malutas at hindi umuusad pero pag oposisyun, dali-dali sila,” former Senator Antonio Trillanes said after the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) filed cases against Vice President Ma. Leonor Robredo and others over “Ang Totoong Narcolist”.

“Alam nila na wala silang hawak na ebidensya kundi ang salaysay ng isang testigo na ilang ulit nang nagsinungaling sa publiko, pero tinuloy pa rin ang pag-file ng kaso,” Trillanes added.

He said the filing of cases against key members of the opposition are clear acts of political persecution and harassment by the Duterte administration meant to stifle democratic dissent.

“The PNP-CIDG investigators clearly abused and misused the subpoena power recently bestowed on them to single out critics of the Duterte administration,” he added.


In line with the filed cases, Justice Secretary Menardo I. Guevarra said he will form a panel of state prosecutors to hear the complaint and conduct the requisite preliminary investigation. 

“Sana lang ay mag-isip nang malalim at hindi magpagamit sa pulitika ang mga DOJ prosecutors na mag-iimbestiga nitong kasong ito. Bagkus ay gawin ang nararapat para lumabas ang katotohanan,” Trillanes said.

“Anu’t-ano pa man, haharapin ko ito at gagamitin kong pagkakataon na mailabas ang kaugnayan ni Duterte sa iligal na droga,” he noted.
