MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – This year’s Nobel Peace Prize may already have been announced (two winners: Denis Mukwege of Congo and Nadia Murad of Iraq), but a second prize is reportedly awaiting Philippine Senator Antonio Trillanes.
Trillanes is a staunch critic of Rodrigo Duterte and has gone as far as the International Criminal Court to call for the investigation of the Phiippine President’s alleged crimes against humanity.
But alas, something was lost in translation.
When Trillanes heard of the impending prize, he apparently didn’t realize it was about a NoBail prize — one that will surely come his way if the Makati Regional Trial Court Branch No. 148 decides to issue a warrant of arrest for his alleged role in the 2003 Oakwood mutiny, which was revived after President Rodrigo Duterte voided his amnesty last month.
Mutiny is a non-bailable offense.
