Statement of Senator Trillanes re revocation of amnesty:

It was agreed to by the Senate leadership that I remain under the custody of the Senate President until my lawyers have filed the necessary petition against the illegal and unconstitutional revocation of my amnesty. What Mr. Duterte wants to happen is to order a warrantless arrest which seems to declare a de facto martial law.

My amnesty was granted after all requirements have been complied with. I even took oath in front of then defense officials. All my cases covered by the amnesty have been dismissed.

Mr. Duterte, duwag ka. Inantay mo pang makaalis ka bago mo nilabas itong proclamation mo. This is a clear case of political persecution, but I will not cower. There's a time for reckoning for you and your minions.
