“I am starting to believe the rumors that Trillanes is hooked on something that must have disrupted his sanity, destroyed his dreams, and triggered his obsession with President Duterte.”

This was the reaction of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to Senator Antonio Triallnes IV’s move to seek a Senate inquiry into President Rodrigo Duterte’s alleged unexplained wealth.

“I feel sad for Trillanes and his tireless attempt to rehash and recycle an issue that has already been proven as gossip. The senator cannot file a case because there is no basis for it,” President Duterte’s daughter also said in a message sent to reporters

Trillanes filed on Monday Senate Resolution No. 602, asking the committee on banks, financial institutions, and currencies to investigate the alleged unexplained wealth of Duterte and his daughter.

Citing the Vera Files report, Trillanes claimed that the father and daughter might have violated Republic Act No. 9160, also known as the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA), for failing to “fully disclose” in their respective SALNs (statement of assets, liabilities and net worth) for the past years alleged money exceeding P100 million in joint deposits and investments under the Bank of the Philippine Islands.

“As the highest-ranking official of the land, President Rodrigo Duterte and Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio as the elected City Mayor of Davao City are classified by the AMLA as ‘politically exposed persons’ under the law and its implementing regulations,” Trillanes said in his resolution.

But the Davao City mayor asserted that “Trillanes is lying.”

“I have said this before and I am saying it again – Trillanes is lying. He has the penchant for parading his star witnesses in the Senate and yet he cannot even produce Joseph De Mesa, who, according to his affidavit, was his source of information,” Duterte-Carpio said.

“He also says AMLC (Anti Money Laundering Council) is the source of his documents and yet he twits President Durerte for not executing a waiver for AMLC. So how come he has a copy of a purported AMLC document without the waiver?” she further said. Faye Orellana, INQUIRER.net                                         /kga
