Trillanes vindicated that Ombudsman confirmed AMLC docs of Duterte

Senator Antonio F. Trillanes IV feels vindicated after the Ombudsman finally confirmed that the documents submitted to them by the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) on the bank accounts of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte are "more or less" the same as the ones he exposed to the public.

In a published interview, Overall Deputy Ombudsman Arthur Carandang said that, "We can confirm that we received bank transactions coming from AMLC, generated by AMLC for intelligence purpose".

In the same interview, when asked if the documents he had received from AMLC were the same as the ones Trillanes had submitted, Carandang said, "More or less, they have the same details".

"This proves not only that my allegations about his billion-peso bank accounts are true, but also that Duterte has fooled a lot of people into believing that he is not corrupt ", said Trillanes.

During the campaign period last year, Trillanes first made the allegation that President Duterte's had at least Php 2 billion in credits and deposits in numerous bank accounts under his name. He reiterated the same allegations in February this year.

Just a week ago Duterte declared, "If you see P200 million and confirm that I have it, I will step down tomorrow".
