The Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 148 has ordered Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to respond to the motion filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeking that he be ordered arrested.

Trillanes was given five days to submit his comment.

The court also set the case for hearing on Sept. 13.
