According to Pres. Rody Duterte, based on the information he gathered, Sen. Antonio Trillanes just stayed inside the PMA office and allegedly did not participate in the rigorous trainings of the cadets studying at the Philippine Military Academy (PMA).
Pres. Duterte also revealed that the former cadet Antonio Trillanes got the privilege because of the fact that his father is a former military officer.
“Hindi ako yung anak ng opisyal sa PMA, si Trillanes, na hindi man pala sumasali doon sa mga training na yung talagang iihi ka sa pantalon mo. Kasi he was favored because he was always in the office of his father who was working for government, also a military man,” Duterte stated.
This is the reason why Pres. Duterte noted that he is not guilty of lying or having a father to manipulate the system in order for their son to enjoy some privileges.
Pres. Duterte was once accused by Sen. Trillanes as not a real lawyer and there’s a huge possibility that his father worked out some plans to make Duterte into a prominent lawyer in Mindanao.
The President from Davao City, Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying “Siya pala ang nilakad ng tatay niya. My father would never do that even if I wanted to,” Duterte stated.
