BREAK: Makati court allows Trillanes to travel to Europe, US
The Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 150 has allowed Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to travel abroad.
In its three-page order, Makati RTC Branch 150 Judge Elmo Alameda noted that Trillanes’ past actions indicate that he is not a flight risk.
“As shown by his past actions, he voluntarily surrendered and posted bail in this case immediately upon service of the warrant for his arrest and that he has always returned to this country in those instances where he was permitted by the courts to travel abroad. Foremost is that, he is not a flight risk,” said the court.
Trillanes had sought the Makati City court’s permission to travel to Europe and the U.S. from Dec. 11, 2018 to Jan. 12, 2019 and from Jan. 27 to Feb. 10, 2019.
The court has required Trillanes to post a P200,000 bond. Trillanes upon his return, was also ordered by the court to file a manifestation attaching a machine copy of the page of his passport with the corresponding mark of the Bureau of Immigration indicating the date of his departure and return. /muf
