Trillanes appeared before the press after posting bail of P200,000 for the rebellion charges after Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 150 served his warrant of arrest on Tuesday, September 25.

Aside from the rebellion case, a non-bailable, separate coup d'etat charges were also filed by the Department of Justice (DJ) at the Makati RTC Branch 148 for the “Oakwood mutiny” in 2003.

The senator said, “Wala na eh, as it is, milagro ang inaantay natin from (Makati Regional Trial Court) Branch 148. We're kumbaga, slightly more hopeful but we have to expect for the worst."

While waiting for another court decision, Trillanes revealed he is ready to face whatever life brings. He said, “Sa akin naman kasi, kung anong dumarating sa aking buhay ay niyayakap ko ’yan. Ano man ang bigay sa ‘kin ng buhay, ng tadhana. Ano man, yayakapin ko ’yan.”

However, Trillanes didn’t mince his words when he lambasted President Duterte who he believes had a hand in his arrest. He described his enemy as “demonyo,” so he is expecting nothing but the worst.

He also blasted Duterte for using his influence and power to silence him. Trillanes said, “That’s very obvious. Ito talagang ginagamit niya na 'yung impluwensiya ng kaniyang opisina para baluktutin ang kailangan baluktutin para magawa at makamit ang kagustuhan niya."

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque said that the Palace is pleased that Trillanes is complying with the processes after the senator followed the booking procedure and posed for his mugshot at the Makati Police Station.

Magdalo party-list Representative Gary Alejano defended Trillanes saying that the Makati Court’s decision was a mistake. He said, “Mali in the sense na naghahanap sila ng wala naman talaga in the first place.”

For now, the former mutineer will continue to remain at the Senate after the court granted him temporary liberty.
