Duterte said a certain person surnamed Abad was the mistress of Trillanes.

“AMLC records were given to Trillanes by a certain Abad who is his mistress,” he told reporters in a Palace briefing.

Asked if he was referring to former AMLC executive director Julia Baccay-Abad, he replied, “Yung babae na nasa AMLC.”

Abad resigned as executive director on January 2017.

In a statement, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV denied Duterte’s claims that he hd a mistress at AMLC.

“I categorically deny itong huling imbentong storya ni Duterte. Nakakalungkot lang na meron pang nadadamay na ibang tao,” Trillanes said. “In this case, si Atty. Julia Bacay-Abad na kilala bilang isang disente at pamilyadong tao na naging propesyunal sa kanyang paglingkod bilang executive director ng AMLC.”

[I categorically deny this latest made-up story of Duterte. It saddens me that another person has been dragged into this issue. In this case, it’s Atty. Julia Bacay-Abad who is known to be a decent person with a family who conducted herself professional in her service as executive director of AMLC.]

The senator told Duterte not to veer away from the real issue.

“Mr. Duterte, wag mong daanin sa kabastusan ang pag-iwas mo sa tunay na isyu ng bilyun-bilyong pera mo sa bangko,” he said.

[Mr. Duterte, don’t resort to rudeness in your attempt to evade the issue of your billions in the bank.]
