The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) said they are ready to arrest former Senator Antontio Trillanes IV and 10 others over conspiracy to commit sedition if they will not post bail.

“Unless they post bail, the accused will be arrested. But they are expected to post bail,” according to CIDG National Capital Region Chief PCol. Tom Ibay.

The Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court Branch 138 has already released a warrant of arrest against Trillanes, Peter Joemel ‘Bikoy’ Advincula, and nine others.

Ibay said they are still waiting for the copy of the warrant before taking any action and in case they were not able to post bail.

The accused were charged due to the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video that aimed to discredit President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.

Meanwhile, Trillanes said he will post bail next week when he returns to the Philippines. The former senator also said he is ready to face any complaints filed against him.

“I am out of the country as of the moment for a series of engagements. But I intend to post bail once I arrive in Manila late next week. I will face this case just as I have faced all the other harassment cases Duterte’s minions have filed against me,” he said in a statement.—AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
