“I take my hat off kay Sen. Trillanes. Very boldly talagang pinakita niya na kaya niyang i-disprove ang ‘di siya nag-hesitate. Ako, I admire him for that,” Senator Ping Lacson said as quoted by GMA News Online. This is after Trillanes went to Singapore to disprove his alleged bank accounts.
Trillanes said “No such accounts exist: ang sabi ng bank teller nang ipinakita ko ang aking passport kasama ang dalawang account numbers na galing kina Duterte, Erwin Tulfo at Mocha Uson.”
“Pinuntahan naman namin ang HSBC sa Raffles Blvd. pero ATM lang ang meron doon. A quick check at the HSBC Singapore website showed that there is no HSBC Raffles Branch,” he added.
Lacson also said that the burden of proof is now with President Rodrigo Duterte. “Ang burden of proof, lalong bumigat pa sa part ni Presidente. Dapat makita ngayon may existing account na may laman,” Lacson said.
“Malaking bagay. Kasi pag nagiba mo isa or dalawa, it follows na ang susunod may cloud of doubt. Paano mo ma-appreciate ang credibility ng susunod pang similar accusations?” Senator Lacson added.
