“Hopefully within this week, late this week or next week (I will be able file it). I was just distracted by these fake accounts thing,” he stated.
Trillanes, in a radio interview Sunday, confessed being affected emotionally upon studying of the allegations made by a minimum of President Duterte himself.
“Kapag inakusahan ka ng hindi totoo, hindi maganda ‘yun sa pakiramdam. Kaya nagtataka ako sa mga ito eh. Inaakusahan ko sila eh ganun ang pinapakita nila kasi totoo eh, totoo,” he was quoted saying within the stated interview.
But he has come to understand, Trillanes stated to reporters, that this difficulty towards him could possibly be however simply one other try to divert not solely his however the public attention’s attention extra particularly.
“Diversion ito eh. This is a distraction for me kasi instead na nandun ako kanina sa BOC (Bureau of Customs) hearing I needed to prepare for this press conference. Pero sige hinarap ko ito. Gusto ko magkaroon ng closure kaagad dito so that we can revert dun sa primary focus at hand which is itong si (Pres.) Duterte ay may bilyon bilyong piso sa kanyang bank accounts,” he stated.
“Si (Davao City Vice Mayor) Paolo Duterte at si (Atty. Manases) Mans Carpio ay may daan daang milyon sa kanilng bank accounts. At itong si Paolo Duterte ay member ng triad, criminal syndicate na ito ang namumuno hindi lang sa smuggling operations sa Customs kung hindi dito sa importation ng illegal drugs dito sa ating bansa. Yan ang primary issue,” Trillanes emphasised.
