Trillanes arraigned next month – DOJ

Antonio Trillanes IV

FORMER senator Antonio Trillanes IV will be arraigned for inciting sedition on March 17.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra revealed this over the weekend after the Quezon City metropolitan trial court Branch 138 ordered last Friday the arrest of Trillanes and 10 others in connection with the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos. 

“Arrest warrants issued vs Trillanes, et al. Arraignment on March 17,” Guevarra said. 

Trillanes vowed to face the suit, which was recently filed against him. 

“I will face this case just as I have faced all the other harassment cases...” Trillanes said in a message to reporters. 

“I am out of the country as of the moment for a series of engagements. But I intend to post bail once I arrive in Manila late next week,” he continued.

The Department of Justice  indicted Trillanes and 10 other individuals over the viral videos after probable cause was established against them during preliminary investigation into the complaints filed by the Philippine National Police.
