Trillanes challenges Duterte anew: Show us your bank transactions
More than nine months after exposing the alleged bank accounts of President Rodrigo Duterte, Trillanes has released documents that would support his claim and has reiterated his challenge to the latter to open his bank accounts to the public.
According to Trillanes: "It has been months since the President's camp has postponed the release of the President's bank transactions, and I am still waiting to be proven wrong."
"I am reiterating my challenge to President Duterte to release the transaction history of his bank accounts and if my allegations were proven wrong, I would immediately resign as Senator."
In the documents provided by Trillanes, which according to him came from a concerned citizen, the President had a total of more than Two Billion Pesos in deposits under his name.
Trillanes also disclosed that based on bank documents, Duterte's campaign contributor, Samuel "Sammy" Uy gave almost 120 million pesos to different members of the Duterte family from 2011 to 2013.
After raising the issue in April 2016, Trillanes filed a complaint for plunder against Duterte before the Ombudsman.
"The President has been vocal on his campaign against corruption; but how can we expect him to solve this problem when he himself had questionable amounts of money in his accounts, which he never declared in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth?", Trillanes further added.
