'SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE' ALLEGEDLY CONDUCTING SURVEILLANCE SEN. TRILLANES' HOUSE



CCTV footages of a vehicle suspectedly roaming around the residence of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV were released by the lawmaker's office.

Trillanes said the presence of the vehicle around his house was highly suspicious and has hallmarks of surveillance.

Unfazed with the alleged casing of his home, Trillanes said his camp is currently checking on the vehicles' plate numbers.

On Thursday night of last week, Trillanes was supposed to leave the Senate.

However, the Senator chamged his mind when when his car was allegedly tailed by men riding in motorcycle.

Instead the lawmaker decided to just leave the Senate premises until the Armed Forces of the Philippines assures him that ots members won't arrest him.

Reacting to Trillanes' allegations, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque called Trillanes' statement drama and paranoia.

Roque cleared that the government has nothing to do about his claims.

Currently, Trillanes is still holed up in Senate following President Rodrigo Duterte's revocation of his amnesty awarded to him by the Aquino administration in 2011.
