Calida shows heart, says Trillanes is forgiven
Solicitor General Jose Calida on Tuesday said he will just forgive Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for accusing him of stealing the legislator’s amnesty papers.
“We’ll, we should forgive those who have sinned against us,” Calida told reporters.
Trillanes accused Calida of stealing his amnesty papers after Secretary of National Defense Delfin Lorenzana revealed that Calida called him and inquired about the amnesty documents of the senator.
Lorenzana said he told the Judge Advocate General to assist Calida.
Calida then issued a statement telling Trillanes to apologize to him or he will file a libel case against the legislator, and even seek damages.
Trillanes, however, refused to budge despite Calida’s threat.
“He said he won’t apologize. Maybe I will just forgive him,” Calida said. /kga
