Recent "long" statements made by presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo about Senator Antonio Trillanes IV were "creepy" and only proves that he has gotten under the skin of the country's top executive, the outgoing lawmaker said.

"Panelo's long press release betrays his and Duterte's obsession about me," Trillanes said in a statement released Sunday.

"While I'm supposed to feel good knowing that I have successfully gotten under their skin, but coming from somebody like Panelo, it somehow feels creepy," he added.

Panelo on Friday said Trillanes should brace himself for the prospect of being jailed anew for alleged attempts to topple the Duterte administration.

"While many will wish Mr. Trillanes good riddance as he is about to leave the hallowed halls of the Senate at the end of June of this year, we will instead wish him luck as he faces another prospect of being placed behind bars again as the self-confessed black propagandist turns against his master, even as his victims look forward to seeing the Senate, or better yet the government, without the cantankerously obnoxious coup plotter," Panelo said in a statement issued Friday night.

Prior to this, Trillanes said President Rodrigo Duterte was plotting moves anew against him, this time using Peter Joemel Advincula also known as Bikoy.

“Ayan ka na naman. Hindi ka pa nga nakakabawi sa kapalpakan mo dun sa inimbento mong offshore bank accounts na bintang mo sa akin, pati na rin dun sa mga sinabi mo laban sa Nanay ko, tapos may bago ka na namang bintang,” Trillanes said earlier.

“This time, si Bikoy naman ang source mo. Henyo ka talaga, Duts,” he added. — Jon Viktor D. Cabuenas/BM, GMA News
