Trillanes unfazed by arrest warrant over Junjun Binay’s libel suit
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV remained unfazed by the issuance of a warrant of arrest against him by a Makati Court on Monday in connection with a libel case filed by dismissed Makati Mayor Jejomar “Junjun” Binay, saying this would not stop him from going after the Binay family.
“Pinagaaralan na ng abogado ko kung ano ang mga nararapat na hakbang,” Trillanes said in a text message to reporters.
“Pero kung ang layunin ng pamilya Binay sa kasong ito ay para tigilan ko sila sa aking paguusig, nagkakamali sila. Hindi ko hahayaan ang mga magnanakaw na mamuno ng ating bansa,” the senator added.
Trillanes was reacting to the reported issuance of the arrest warrant by the Makati Regional Trial Court 142.
The case stemmed from Trillanes’ allegations that Mayor Binay had allegedly bought an injunction from the Court of Appeals to stop his suspension in connection with the allegedly anomalous construction of the Makati City Hall 2 parking building.
It was also Trillanes who initiated the Senate investigation on the controversial parking building.
