A viral open letter asking Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV to back up his accusations with proof against the Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said that the Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has an undeclared bank account but declined to say where he got the information.

Instead you dare the accused to comply with your silly demands so you can corner him.
So yes, I want Duterte to sign your silly waiver if only to prove his innocence.

Duterte does not have to comply with Trillanes’ demands. He does not have to do anything at all.
But the law says Trillanes must prove his accusation or face a stricter penalty for falsely accusing someone, anyone.
You guys want a decent society? Then here, let’s follow the law!!!!
