Online petition calls for removal of Senator Trillanes

The clashed between Senator Richard Gordon and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV during the Senate hearing of BOC shabu shipment on Friday have been intensified after Gordon says he will file ethics complaint against Trillanes.


Gordon was determined to pursue the complaint. He recounted the first clash they had with Trillanes and to the other senators.

"He has done that consistently. I already forgave him the first time. He even came to my office and apologized then he did it to Mr. Zubiri. Then he was trying to do it to Cayetano, he was trying to turn off the microphone," Gordon said.

“I’m sorry hindi lahat ng araw sa’yo,” the senator added.

"I will file personally an ethics complaint against the gentleman from Bicol," Gordon said.

Moreover, the Mindavote page started an online petition to remove Senator Trillanes in his post. They urged followers to signed the petition and support it by sharing.

Six hours as of posting, the petition already gathered more than 14, 000 of supporters. 

In the said petition, it stated, 

"Antonio Trillanes' obsession with President Rodrigo Duterte and his family needs to be stopped as it is already interfering with the vital work of the senate. The whole nation is now being held hostage by one man's megalomaniacal delusions. Trillanes is a menace to society. How long will the senate allow him to drag the institution through the mud just to satisfy his personal vendetta.

Sen. Richard Gordon has said that he will file a complaint against Trillanes before the Senate Ethics Committee and move for his expulsion.

We now urge the good Senator to make good on his threat, and do the entire nation a public service by removing Trillanes from the Senate in the same manner he left the Armed Forces of the Philippines- in utter disgrace."

Meanwhile, Gordon also released statements on his Facebook page. He lamented his sentiments towards Trillanes and explained his side over the matter.

STATEMENT OF SENATOR RICHARD J. GORDON ON THE FILING OF ETHICS COMPLAINT AGAINST SEN. TRILLANES

I am filing an ethics complaint against Sen. Trillanes for his disorderly behavior and for his improper language. I have to defend the honor and dignity, not only of the Senate, but of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee as well. The reputation and dignity of the Senate is primordial and the preservation of the Senate’s honor was what I tried to uphold by trying to rein him in and maintain an orderly proceeding. I will not countenance disorder.

A senator is supposed to act in a most cordial and the most gentlemanly manner that is why we refer to one another as the Gentleman from Olongapo, Bicol, and so on and so forth. But Sen. Trillanes has been consistently displaying acts that are unbecoming of a member of this august chamber. Whenever he fails to get what he wants, he would accuse everyone of being in a conspiracy against him. Then he would make all kinds of accusations or allegations about those who went against him to discredit them. The first time that a similar circumstance arose, I forgave him after he went to my office to apologize. But now the time for talking is over.

As Chairman of the Blue Ribbon Committee, it is my duty not to allow its investigations to be turned into fishing expeditions for the pursuit of a personal agenda. My apologies for losing my temper but it was hard to maintain it given such a blatant display of intransigence.
