Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has slammed Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II for linking him to the Marawi City siege by accusing him of assembly with different politikos.
In an announcement Wednesday (June 7), Trillanes stated he isn’t concerned with the Marawi disaster or the terrorist Maute group.
“The incompetence of Aguirre is only matched by his stupidity. I would advise him to avoid getting his intel from facebook conspiracy theorists,” he stated.
Trillanes denied assembly politikos in Marawi City on May 2, saying he has not visited the place for the previous three years.
But greater than his assertion, Trillanes stated Senate attendance information will attest to the very fact he was in Manila on the time of the supposed assembly.
Aguirre has claimed that Trillanes met with Senator Bam Aquino, Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano, former Presidential Adviser on Political Affairs Ronald Llamas and native leaders in Marawi City earlier than the Mautes staged their assault on May 23.
Aquino and Alejano have denied Aguirre’s allegation.
