After visiting Senator Leila de Lima in jail, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said that he will stop at nothing to make sure President Rodrigo Duterte also serves time in prison.
"Hahabulin ko 'tong si Duterte, the moment mawala na sya sa poder ng kapangyarihan, ipapakulong kita, hahabulin kita," Trillanes said on Friday outside the custodial center of the Philippine National Police (PNP) where De Lima is detained over drug charges.
Aside from pushing for the investigation of the alleged Davao Death Squad (DDS), Trillanes is also accusing Duterte of having an undeclared wealth amounting to as much as P2.4 billion.
Trillanes said he is not at all unfazed by what happened to De Lima, who, like him, is a staunch critic of the Duterte administration.
"Ako ang susunod? Plano nga nila akong unahin e, pero sige bring it on, do your worst," Trillanes said.
(I'm next? I was supposed to be their first, but bring it on, do your worst.)
He added: "I am motivated more than ever, mas ginaganahan ako na iexpose itong pagkatao ni President Duterte na siya ay isang mandarambong at mamamatay tao, hindi ako titigil hangga’t hindi namumulat ang sambayanang Pilipino, talagang pananagutin natin siya, hahabulin at hahabulin ko siya, hindi ko siya titigilan."
(I am motivated more than ever to expose the true character of Duterte, that he is a plunderer and a murderer. I will not stop until the Filipino people realize this. We will hold him accountable, I will run after him, I will not quit.)
