If Senator Antonio Trillanes III under former President Noynoy Aquino uses AMLC manipulation to discredit then former Vice President Jejomar Binay, the current President also throws the same strategy back to Trillanes over his allegations that the leader’s family have a total of over 2billion pesos in their bank accounts. Unlike Binay who prefers to answer Trillanes’ challenges in court, Digong answers the challenge through the media, court, and AMLC. Both Binay and the President are avid supporters of Bongbong Marcos that Trillanes hates.

[VIDEO]: The Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) on Monday took a beating from President Rodrigo Duterte, the latter calling it a “part of the garbage that he resented” for failing to do its mandate.
The President announces to members of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class of 1967 that he orders the Anti-Money Laundering Council or AMLC to release information on his net worth. This is in response to a challenge by Sen. Antonio Trillanes to disclose his bank accounts to prove that he does not have billions of pesos. This is quite an entertaining event for the public listening to the cross-fires. This is very different when Trillanes attacks Binay. It is evident that the libelous Senator will do everything to discredit a political enemy of his party. All he can say to Binay is that – he had no regrets or else, Binay would be President if he did not orchestrate a media propaganda against him.
Principle and Honor
The president vows to the PMAers that he aims to retain the honor of the PMA Class ’67 where he is an adoptive member – the reason why he ordered AMLC for the release of the information on his net worth in pesos. He does this as a matter of principle and honor, he said. This is his way of alluding to the military academy’s adherence to integrity.
The President swears that he and his family are never corrupt. This is his promise during the presidential campaign. Aside from his salary, he won’t avail of his allowances. This arrangement remains until the end of his term,” Digong said.
The senator said vows to resign if Duterte could prove him wrong. On the same day, Palace Communications office releases a video of the president throwing back the challenge to Trillanes. He is also ready to resign if the senator could prove his allegations. Trillanes is even not satisfied and declares his wishes to imprison the president and not just resign if he is right. This definitely won’t stop here. The president is not the kind who remains quite like Binay. The ex-VP, however, manages to have Trillanes convicted with libel. This is why the libelous senator is just out on bail – and does not deserve any credibility.
