AMLC denies Trillanes’ request for Duterte bank transactions


The Anti Money Laundering Council or AMLC has denied the request of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to see all the flagged or reported transactions of President Rodrigo Duterte.

This is in light of his allegations that the President has P2.4 billion in his bank accounts.

The said accounts were allegedly undeclared in the President’s Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN) when he was still the Davao City mayor.

In a letter, AMLC said the senator’s request is not allowed by the law as it does not fall under the exemptions of the Bank Secrecy Law.

The agency added that only cases of investigation of unlawful activity or money laundering offenses are considered exemptions.

The Senator challenged anew the president to sign bank waivers to prove that he is not corrupt.

Sen. Trillanes dared Pres. Duterte, “Marami ka pang drama, marami ka pang-arte, pumirma ka ng waiver para malaman na ng taumbayan kung ano ang totoo. Kapag mali ang aking alegasyon, magre-resign ako sa Senado. Hindi lang iyan, magwa-walk-in pa ako sa kulungan.”

(You have so many drama. Sign the waiver for the people to know the truth. If I am wrong in my allegation, I will resign. And not only that, I will send myself straight to jail.) — UNTV News & Rescue
