Manila, Philippines – Outgoing opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has been attacked again by President Duterte involving the Senator’s mother and the alleged mastermind of Pork barrel scam Janet Napoles.

The President said, Trillanes’ mother, his father and Janet Napoles were involved in an alleged anomalous purchase of Kevlar helmets.

It was claimed that both Trillanes’ parents were involved in graft and corruption at the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) during his father’s stint, the President said during the inauguration of his son as Davao City Vice Mayor Sebastian Duterte last Friday.

“If there was something wrong, if there was money there, kila Trillanes ‘yon, hindi sa amin. Ang No. 1 na graft and corruption diyan noon sa PMA, ‘yung tatay niya pati ‘yung nanay niya,”  President Duterte said.

“Remember ‘yung Kevlar? It’s a helmet na matigas na hindi matamaan ng . . . kung bala hindi masyado maka-penetrate. That’s Kevlar. Ang nag-deliver noon ang nanay ni Trillanes pati si Napoles. ‘Yan ang totoo diyan,” he also added.

It was headlined in the Inquirer in July of 2013, the controversial P10-billion pork barrel scam allegedly by businesswoman Janet Napoles as the mastermind.

Also mentioned in the said anomalous P10-billion Pork barrel scam was the alleged purchase of Kevlar helmets worth P3.8 million, involving Janet Napoles’ husband, retired Marine Major Jaime Napoles was also charged with Graft and corruption and malversation of funds in connection with the alleged ill transaction.

As previously mentioned by the Chief Executive back in September 2018, that the mother of Trillanes was also accused of allegedly entering into shady deals with the Philippine Navy when the senator and his father were still in the military. This was a clear case of conflict of interest, the  President said.

Trillanes has denied all the allegations and revealed that his mother was suffering from advanced Parkinson’s Disease.
