Tril­lanes’ claims a ‘re­hash’ – Palace

Manila Times - - FRONT PAGE - ClaimsA8

MALA­CAÑANG on Thurs­day brushed aside Sen. An­to­nio Tril­lanes 4th’s bid to re­vive al­le­ga­tions dur­ing the 2016 elec­tion cam­paign that Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte had more than P2.4 bil­lion in bank ac­counts.

In a news con­fer­ence, pres­i­den­tial spokesman Ernesto Abella dis­missed Tril­lanes’ claims as a “re­hash,” say­ing the is­sue had been pre­vi­ously ad­dressed.

“This is a re­hash of some­thing that he brought up about three days be­fore elec­tions and it’s been prop­erly ad­dressed. Ba­si­cally, he’s bring­ing up old is­sues,” Abella said.
