Radio host Mark Lopez offered to explain Trillanes and company are only getting sued with “conspiracy to commit sedition” case to the consternation of netizens. “Peeps, LINAWIN NATIN HA.”
Lopez enumerated the people who are getting sued together with former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. “Ang kaso na sinampa kina TRILLANES, YOLY ONG, FR ALEJO, VICENTE ROMANO, BOOM ENRIQUEZ, EDUARDO ACIERTA, JOEL SARACHO, JONNEL SANGALANG, FR. VILLANUEVA, a certain MONIQUE, ,at kay PETER JOEMEL “BIKOY” ADVINCULA ay CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT SEDITION.“
Not sedition but the lesser crime. “Hindi po SEDITION o INCITING TO SEDITION ang kinaso. Conspiracy to commit Sedition lang.”
“Iba po yan,” Lopez added.
Thus explains why Trillanes and company can post bail. “Kaya po may bail. 10,000 petot ang bail para sa crime na CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT SEDITION.”
In case Trillanes and company are convicted, Lopez said they could 6 years imprisonment under Article 141 of RVP. “At ang maximum penalty po nyan ay prison correcional, or 6 YEARS na kulong. Ayon ito sa Article 141 ng Revised Penal Code.”
“Ang tanong, bakit po CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT SEDITION lang ang kaso?” Lopez asked.
Lopez went to explain that the DOJ believed the evidence gathered suggest lack of elements that constitutes sedition because there was no overt act of sedition itself. “Eh kasi po, ang tingin ng DOJ, kulang sa elements ng sedition ung ginawa ng mga suspects kasi wala dun ung obvert act of sedition mismo.”
In other words, Trillanes and company did not execute their plans to oust the government because the public did not take the bite. “Meaning, hindi naman po nila na achieve ung gusto nila mangyari dahil hindi naman kinagat ng tao ung gusto nila na galitin at udyukin ang taumbayan para magkagulo at pabagsakin ang gobyerno.”
Lopez urged the public, especially the Duterte supporters to take chill. “So relax lang po tayo. Alam ko naman na emotions are high and marami tayo disappointed and enraged na bakit ganun lang ang kaso.”
Lopez said this also explains why Robredo, De Lima, the OtsoDiretso and Hontiveros were not included in the case because their roles were to enjoy the fruits of victory had they succeeded. “Eto rin po ang dahilan bakit hindi nakasama sina Leni Robredo, Otso Diretso and sina Risa, at Leila. Kasi nga itong mga ito eh ang papel ay makikinabang lang kapag nagkagulo at naagaw nila ang kapangyarihan. Pero hindi sila kasama sa nagplano, at itong 11 lang na kinasuhan ang may malinaw na participation, ayon na rin sa testimonya ni Bikoy.”
“Kaya chill lang mga peeps,” Lopez reiterated his call to the public to take it easy.
“Maging rational na lang tayo at tanggapin natin na ganyan ang prevailing justice system natin,” Lopez added.
Lopez urged the public at things in the brighter side. He said critics can no longer accuse PRRD of being a dictator. Because it was very clear the DOJ followed the law and acted with careful approach. “Ang positive side nito, hindi nila puede ngayon sabihin na tayo ay nasa diktaturya o tyranny. Ayan at malinaw na sinusunod ng DOJ ang batas, at maingat silang kumikilos.”
Lopez said he found solace that Yolly Ong is facing the prospect of going to prison. “At ok na ako na ang isang katulad ni Yoly Ong ay nakasuhan na at may posibilidad na makulong.”
Lopez made a promise to throw a party if that happens. “Pag dumating yang araw na yan, mag party tayo!”
