Senator Antonio Trillanes IV rejected on Thursday Solicitor General Jose Calida’s demand for an apology.

“He’s in no position to demand anything,” Trillanes said in a press briefing.


“Alam niya ang katotohanan. Alam ng buong Pilipinas at this point ‘yung katotohanan. (He knows the truth. The entire Phlippines, at this point, knows the truth).”

“Ngayon, kung ano man ang plano niyang gawin (Now, whatever he is planning to do), I expect the worst out of him; so, he can do whatever he wants,” he added.


Calida demanded an apology from the senator after the latter accused him of allegedly stealing his amnesty papers.

“Unless Mr. Trillanes expresses his sincere apology for calling me a thief, I shall be constrained to file a criminal case for libel plus damages against him,” the SolGen said.

Responding to the libel case threat, Trillanes said: “Kung magpa-file siya, gawin niya (If he wants to file, go ahead).”

“E trip niya ‘yan (Well that’s what he wants). So he can do whatever he wants,” the senator added.

Trillanes earlier claimed that Calida “stole” his amnesty application documents, citing Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana’s statement to the media that Calida had requested for the said documents.
