The Pasay City prosecutor's office has indicted Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for inciting to sedition in connection with statements he made against President Rodrigo Duterte after the latter revoked his amnesty.

In a Jan. 29 resolution seen Tuesday, Assistant City Prosecutor Reynaldo Ticyado said the evidence was "sufficient to establish the existence of probable cause" against the opposition senator.

However, the prosecutor dismissed a complaint for proposal to commit coup d'etat against Trillanes.

The indictment stemmed from statements Trillanes made against President Rodrigo Duterte after the latter issued a proclamation revoking his amnesty in connection with his involvement in the 2003 Oakwood Mutiny and the 2007 Manila Penisula Siege.

Trillanes is already facing a case for inciting to sedition before a Pasay court over a privilege speech where he allegedly made a suggestion for the military to shoot Duterte. —NB, GMA News
