‘YET TO EXPLAIN WEALTH’ | Trillanes accuses Duterte of being ‘corrupt himself’

JUNE 20, 2019 — Outgoing Senator Antonio Trillanes has accused President Rodrigo Duterte of being corrupt himself, after the executive leader claimed that he has lost enthusiasm due to alleged corruption in the government.

“Duterte never tried to solve corruption because he himself is corrupt,” Trillanes said in a text message.

The president has yet to sign a waiver explaining the billion peso accounts he has, Trillanes said.

In 2016, the senator has alleged Duterte of not declaring his BPI account in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth.

Trillanes also recalled the Commission on Audit’s 2015 report which questioned Duterte while he was still Davao City’s mayor.

“He has yet to explain his 700 million plunder case…where he employed 11,000 ghost employees as reported by COA,” he said. “He has not even investigated the corruption cases involving members of his Davao group and, in fact, promoted all of them.”

Duterte, in an oath-taking ceremony of newly elected officials in Cagayan De Oro City on June 12, said he “deeply regretted” running for the presidency.

During the 121st anniversary of the Philippine Navy on June 17, Duterte said the constitutional powers given to him do not suffice in addressing anomalies in public office.

“I almost cry…I cannot take the corruption. If there is a table, if there is a single chair there, there is corruption,” Duterte said in his speech.

The president also urged the electorate to find “another Marcos” who can solve the rampant corruption in the country.

Ferdinand Marcos ruled the country for 21 years and had faced several human rights violations charges. He and his family were also accused of amassing ill-gotten wealth.
