    President Duterte orders the arrest of Senator Antonio Trillanes

    "
    Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the arrest of another senator critical of his administration, revoking a seven-year-old amnesty granted to rebel-turned-senator Antonio Trillanes.

    Duterte ordered the military and the police to apprehend Trillanes so that the former navy officer could face trial for leading two failed coups in 2003 and 2007 against the presidency of Gloria Arroyo, an ally of Duterte who was recently installed as speaker of the house of representatives.

    Trillanes is the second senator the Duterte administration has ordered arrested. Leila De Lima, a vocal critic of Duterte’s bloody campaign against illegal drugs, has been detained for 18 months over allegations of conspiring to trade illegal drugs."

    As much as I think that Trillianes is a treacherous dog,I cannot see how DU30 can revoke his amnesty based on the reasons given.. Trillianes has shown documents proving that he had admitted guilt along with his legally administered amnesty docs.
    There may be trouble ahead as Trillianes has said that he is speaking daily to his high ranking military allies..
    Potentially,this situation is an unstable powder keg IMO.

    The problem DU30 has ,is that he was given the wrong advice by Solicitor General Calida..
    Now he needs an Asian face saving way out of his predicament..
    A ridiculous situation..
