Siena Luchansky: Trillanes to go back to jail? Panelo to review pardon granted to Trillanes by PNoy

The Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Secretary Salvador Panelo is set to review the pardon given to Antonio Trillanes IV by BS Aquino in 2010.

"I don't know of the facts of the case yet but there are some legal quarters expressing the same uncertainty or doubt on that. I'll go over the case. Then, I'll give you my proper response," Panelo told reporters in MalacaƱang.

Panelo said that if the amnesty was invalid, Trillanes could be sent back to jail.

"Anything that is not the law can be a precedent. It is always in the context of the law. So kung nagbigay siya ng amnesty na mali, eh hindi valid iyon. But I don't know the facts of the case," Panelo said.

Panelo stressed that the Duterte administration was only after prosecution of law breakers.

"We are not in the business of persecuting people. We are in the business of prosecuting people who violate the law and as the President says it is his duty to protect and serve the people," Panelo said.

Sought for comment, Trillanes mocked Panelo.

"Panelo seems to be getting legal advice from the guy who sold him his ripped jeans," Trillanes said in a text message.

Former President Benigno Aquino III in 2010 granted Trillanes and others facing rebellion charges for their involvement in the Oakwood Mutiny in July 2003 and the Manila Peninsula siege in November 2007.
