President Rodrigo Duterte is claiming that Senator Antonio Trillanes IV made an enormous deal about signing a waiver to open all his bank accounts as a result of he has no bank account within the Philippines under his name.
“Iyan ang style niya. Matanong ko lang ang Pilipino: Did it occur to you, a strange thing, na wala siyang bank account ni piso? I mean, for a senator and a family man he is, until now — nagtataka ba kayo wala siyang sinabi maski isang bank account lang na sabi niya kanya?” mentioned Duterte in a tv interview.
Trillanes had earlier signed 12 waivers for the Office of the Ombudsman and the Anti-Money Laundering Council to open and look into the supposed bank accounts from numerous banks, branches and nations that the Duterte camp claimed held the il-gotten wealth of the Magdalo chief.
”General ang waiver. Ang sikreto diyan is ang pera ni Trillanes, unfold all all through this planet. At ‘yung mga bangko na nandiyan ‘yung pangalan niya, could accomplice siya. So even when he waives every thing there, ‘yung co-partner niyang mga Chinese for each bank, ‘pag hindi maglagay ng waiver, then you definately can not open the account. Hindi mo talaga pwedeng buksan. And I’m certain na ‘yung mga joint accomplice niya, mga dummy ‘yan, ‘yung nagbigay sa kanya ng pera,” Duterte mentioned.
Duterte mentioned Trillanes made use of the final digit in his name to make it tough for investigators to seek out his cash path overseas.
“Kasi marami ‘yan silang Antonio Trillanes. The 3rd, the 2nd, and Antonio Trillanes, Jr. Sabihin niya, ‘Hindi ito akin. Marami kaming Antonio Trillanes…maski sa ibang lugar, may Antonio Trillanes’. Maybe this is the reason why he is willing to sign a bank waiver. Because no four or number four in the name of Antonio Trillanes,” mentioned Duterte.
But with the assistance of a international investigators, Duterte mentioned he has confirmed the 12 bank deposits in Shanghai, Geneva, Zurich, Singapore, British Virgin Islands, and Cayman Islands.
“A closer look on his bank account documents in Zurich and Singapore reveals the name Antonio F. Trillanes. Check on this name because the senator’s complete name is Antonio Fuentes Trillanes, will force to the wall the senator to (say) the bank accounts belong (to him)… ang date of birth and account owner has been confirmed,” mentioned Duterte.
Duterte was adamant the federal government has the products on Trillanes regardless of his claims that the offshore bank accounts have been pretend.
“Kaya’t bobo talaga. Sabi niya, waiver nang waiver. At siya naman, blanket, ibig sabihin, maghanap ka, wala talaga. Na ang sunod tanong ko, ‘Ikaw senador, wala kang maski isang passbook? Binobola mo ang (tao)’,” mentioned Duterte.
