“The chief PNP is confident that there’s no truth on rumors na may namumuong destabilization plot at may involve the PNP personnel (on rumors that a destabilization plot involving police personnel is ongoing),” Fajardo maintained.

The police official likewise urged Trillanes to contact Marbil if he had sufficient evidence to support his claims.

Earlier, Fajardo appealed to the senator to spare the organization from such rumors, as she revealed that they had not monitored any senior police officials involved in such a plot.

Besides the destabilization moves, Trillanes also disclosed that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is expected to issue an arrest warrant against former President Rodrigo Roa Duterte by June or July.
