DASMARIÑAS CITY – Senator Grace Poe took a jab at the Duterte administration’s handling of the amnesty granted to but later revoked from Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

“Yung diploma ninyo, itago n’yo (Your diploma, hide it),” she advised the young and aspiring seafarers, during a speech at the inauguration of a private maritime school here.

“Dito pala sa ating bansa, pag nawawala, wala nang bisa … parang (In our country, when something gets lost, its validity disappears, like) amnesty,” Poe added.

FEATURED STORIES

President Duterte had ordered the arrest of Trillanes, a known administration critic, after revoking the amnesty earlier granted to the former mutineer.

Malacañang had said that the amnesty was void as it could not produce a copy of Trillanes’ application.

The Palace later took back the arrest order until a court issues a warrant.

As she went on, Poe asked the students how many islands compose the Philippines, stressing at one point that “those at the West Philippine Sea belonged to us,” an apparent reference to the territorial dispute between the Philippines and China.

She said the number of Philippine islands is “changing.” “Paiba-iba, parang desisyon ng Korte kay (Keeps on changing, like the Court decision on) Trillanes,” she said./lb
