Two senators who were former allies are now “enemies” from different sides. In his privilege speech yesterday, Sen. Antronio Trillanes IV, bolted out from Senate majority to say his distrust and lost of confidence in the leadership of Senate President Juan Ponce-Enrile.
Trillanes accused Enrile of being an Arroyo ally for allegedly railroading the bill that will divide Camarines Sur into 2 provinces, to which the Senate President denied. Enrile on his part accused Trillanes of lobbying for the interest of China over the dispute in Panatag Shoal.
On that note, their exchanges became heated which caused Trillanes to walk out of the Senate session hall. But his walk out didn’t prohibit the Senate President to reveal notes from former ambassador to China Ambassador Sonia Brady about her meeting with Senator Trillanes in Beijing, China last August 12, 2012.
