President Rodrigo Duterte has revoked the amnesty of Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV by declaring it “void ab initio” under Proclamation 572 dated August 31.

The proclamation was published in today’s issue of the Manila Times, September 4.

It mentioned that the senator did not file an Official Amnesty Application Form as per certification dated August 30, 2018, issued by Lt. Col. Thea Joan Andrade, stating “there is no copy of his application for amnesty in the records” and that the senator “never expressed his guilt for the crimes that were committed on the occasion of the Oakwood Mutiny and the Manila Peninsula Siege.”

The senator’s amnesty was given by former president Benigno Aquino III in 2010.

It was also stated in the proclamation that: “The grant of amnesty to former LTSG Antonio Trillanes IV under Proclamation No. 75 is declared void ab initio because he did not comply with the minimum requirements to qualify under the amnesty proclamation,” Duterte said.

Duterte ordered the Department of Justice and the Court Marshall of the Armed Forces of the Philippines “to pursue all criminal and administrative charges” against Trillanes, and “to employ all lawful means to apprehend” him to bring him back to the detention facility where he had been jailed to stand stand trial.
