Senator Antonio Trillanes admitted that Thursday night was particularly long for him as there was the possibility that he could have been arrested as he slept at his Senate office.

“Actually nagbihis lang ako, nagpalit lang (I just changed clothes). It was a long night,” he said in a press briefing on Friday.


“Talagang we have (We really have) to be vigilant, we have to be prepared… Adrenaline will keep you awake,” he added.

Trillanes said he has already prepared some personal belongings, including toiletries for his possible arrest.


He also thanked his supporters and those who has been visiting him at his office to give their support.

“Doon sa nakikiramay sa mga nangyayari, salamat po sa inyo. Malaking bagay po ‘yan… Yung mga dasal ay talaga pong nagpapalakas sa akin,” he said.

(To those who extend support for what is happening, thank you. That’s a big thing for me. Your prayers really give me strength.) /muf
