Paolo Duterte lauds arrest warrant vs Trillanes


Former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte welcomed Friday the warrant of arrest issued by a Davao City court against opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

“Okay nako ani. Merry Christmas,” the presidential son said on his Facebook page on the arrest warrant.

He also posted on his FB a copy of the warrant of arrest issued by Presiding Judge Melinda Alconcel-Dayanghirang of Davao City Regional Trial Court, Branch 54 against the senator.

The younger Duterte filed libel complaint against Trillanes at the Prosecutor’s Office in Davao City last September.

Paolo accused Trillanes, a staunch critic of President Rodrigo, of maligning him and his family in a radio interview in September 2017 over his alleged corruption and extortion activities involving government transactions.

Dayanghirang has recommended a bail of P24,000 for Trillanes’ temporary liberty.
