Trillanes secures temporary freedom after posting bail
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has secured temporary freedom after posting P200,000 bail before the Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 150 that ordered his arrest for the rebellion case that was dismissed in 2011.
The court, in its order granted the motion filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for an issuance of an arrest warrant and revived the case in connection with the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege with the revocation of amnesty given by former President Benigno Aquino III.
Following the order of arrest, Trillanes voluntarily surrendered to authorities and underwent the standard booking procedures. He then posted bail before the court.
The court approved the bail and issued a release order for Trillanes. /muf
