LATEST NEWS: Palace call for Sereno's resignation ‘a sign of weak evidence’ says Trillanes!

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV

On Tuesday, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said that Malacañang’s call for Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to resign was a “sign that there is a weak evidence” against the chief justice.

“I believe yung ganung statement is a sign of weakness ng ebidensya nila. Kung malakas ebidensya mo ituloy ang impeachment, dalhin dito sa Senado at let the senators decide,” Trillanes said in a media briefing.

Moreover, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque called on Monday to Sereno to “consider resigning to spare the institution from any further damage.”

Yet, Sereno’s camp refused to heed Roque’s call.

In fact, Sereno is currently facing an impeachment complaint before House of Representatives for alleged “culpable violation of the Constitution, corruption, other high crimes and betrayal of public trust for allegedly using public funds to finance her supposed lavish lifestyle; misdeclaring her statement of assets, liabilities and net worth; falsifying court documents; and manipulating a Judicial and Bar Council list for personal and political reasons.”

Meanwhile, Trillanes was asked about on Roque’s appointment as the new Presidential spokesperson, the senator said: “He is played to be gallery para matuwa ang kanyang audience.”

“Kakilala ko sya kaibigan ko sya alam ko na hindi siya ganyan kaya I won’t attack him frontally. I will just focus on his principal pero ang word of advise ko, wag sya magsunog ng tulay mabilis lang yan si Duterte saglit lang yan, kita nyo 18 months na, so mabilis lang yan pag binalahura nya yan mabilis lang sya dyan,” Trillanes said.
