In September 2016, Sen. Trillanes called President Rodrigo Duterte as “mass murderer” as he sought a Senate probe on Duterte's alleged involvement in extrajudicial killings (EJK) in Davao City during his many terms there as mayor, GMA News reported.

It was filed Monday morning by lawyer Abelardo de Jesus, the same lawyer who filed an ethics suit against Senator Leila de Lima last year.

According to Sen. Sotto, the complaint was based on two issues: Trillanes’ bribery claim against two justices of the Court of Appeals in April 2015 where he accused the two of accepting P25 million each to halt Makati Mayor Junjun Binay’s suspension, and for calling Duterte a “murderer.”

Nagbintang siya ng bribery tapos dineclare siya nang contempt…The other issue is ito yung kay President Duterte, ‘yung pagtawag ng mga murderer, ganun, kung anu-ano.

[The complainant said it is] unethical for a member of the Senate, na pag nagbibintang ka, kailangan magpakita ka ng ebidensya.
When asked for comment, Sen. Trillanes said: “Bring it on.”

Sige lang, gawin na nila lahat. Kumbaga, bring it on. Game ako dyan. Handa ako dyan. Hindi ako matitinag diyan. I’ve been through a lot in my life kaya hindi ako basta-basta natitinag sa mga ganyan.
