Trillanes calls Duterte's "political bluff", asks AMLC to release Duterte's bank transactions

Senator Antonio "Sonny" F. Trillanes IV has written a letter to the Anti-Money Laundering Council to request for a list of all flagged/reported bank transactions of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte from 2006 onwards, after the latter said in a speech that he has directed the AMLC to release his bank transaction.

Trillanes said: "I believe that President Duterte's public announcement to release his bank transactions is just a political bluff because simply writing a waiver addressed to the bank would have been much simpler. Nonetheless, I am calling his bluff and I have written to AMLC to publicly release said information."

In a letter sent by Trillanes to AMLC on Tuesday, he said he believes that the public statement and very categorical claim of the President to release his bank transactions, which was publicized in major radio and TV networks, and newspapers would be sufficient for the said agency to release said documents, even without Duterte's formal and written request.

"If the AMLC could not release the President's bank transactions, then this is another proof that he is again fooling the Filipino people," Trillanes added.
