Trillanes asks RTC for permit to travel to US, Europe

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Wednesday asked the Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch 150 to allow him to travel to Europe and the United States next month.

He asked the court to allow him to travel from Dec. 11, 2018 to Jan. 12, 2019, and from Jan. 27 to Feb. 10, 2019.

Trillanes’ counsel Reynaldo Robles told the court that the senator had been invited to attend activities in Amsterdam, Barcelona, and London from Dec. 11 to Jan. 11 next year.

From Jan. 27 to Feb. 10, 2019, the senator will likewise be meeting with officials of various groups, organizations, and institutions in California, Washington, DC, and Maryland.

Trillanes attached in his motion a travel order signed by Senate President Vicente Sotto III.

Aside from a warrant of arrest, Makati RTC Branch 150 Judge Elmo Alameda also earlier issued a hold-departure order against Trillanes.

Trillanes has posted bail for his temporary liberty while the charges of rebellion against him remain pending.

The Makati court’s ruling honoring the invalidation of Trillanes’ amnesty is still a subject of a motion for reconsideration.
