Duterte argument on Gazmin signing Trillanes amnesty ‘foolish’, ‘an afterthought’ —lawyers

The issue over the alleged impropriety of former Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin’s signing of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s amnesty certificate appears to be an “afterthought” that will not fly before the courts, a lawyer said Wednesday.
President Rodrigo Duterte, who nullified Trillanes’ amnesty on grounds that his application was invalid, later said the signing of the amnesty itself cannot be done by anyone other than the president, in this case former president Benigno Aquino III.
“Besides, the validity (or absurdity) of a subsequent proclamation revoking an amnesty should only be measured by the grounds or premises of the revoking proclamation itself.”
