MANILA, Philippines –  “Crazy,” and  a “nut-case” were how Senator  Antonio  Trillanes IV described  Ely Pamatong, who had dragged  him into the foiled plot to bomb the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia).

“Alam  mo that’s crazy ano, that guy is crazy. Ngayon kung papatulan  natin yan, we’re crazier than that guy,”  Trillanes  on Wednesday said  of Pamatong.


Pamatong  reportedly said that one of the suspects in the  foiled  Naia bomb try was  framed by the “Magdalo faction” of the senator.

“Papaano daw namin finrame-up? Sa akin po, ayusin nya yung kwento nya. Kung ang gusto lang nyang mangyari is siraan kami o maano kami dyan… it doesn’t make sense and coming from a nut-case like Atty. Pamatong, para naman tayong pumapatol sa may tama sa utak nun,”  Trillanes said in a separate interview  over  DWIZ.


The senator pointed out that he was attending  an ocular  inspection of  the Makati City Hall parking  building when  that supposed  bomb  try was uncovered by authorities.

He said  this attempt to drag  him in a bad light was meant to divert the Senate investigation  into the parking building involving  Vice President Jejomar Binay and his son, Makati  Mayor  Jun-Jun Binay.

In fact,  he said, one of the  leads  the investigators  are pursing  now  involved  certain  PR operators  who are  peddling   what  he described as script  meant only to divert the public from the Senate  probe.

“Alam na natin kung sino ang gumawa ng script pero ito lang maga-guarantee natin. Kung ano pa man yan, maa-assure natin si Vice President Binay na itutuloy tuloy natin ang imbestigasyon kahit maglulupasay pa sila ng mga spokesman nya, tuloy-tuloy po ito,” said the senator.

Asked if he was referring to Vice President Binay, Trillanes said, “I will not say that. Bahala na ang taumbayan to put two and two together.”
