SENATOR Antonio Trillanes IV yesterday said he intends to write the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) in order to obtain all bank transactions under the name of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Trillanes, staunch critic of the administration, said he would write a letter to AMLC asking for the release of all the bank transactions of the President from 2006 up to 2016.
   
“Susulat ako sa AMLC. I’ll ask for the release of all the reported transactions under the name of Rodrigo Roa Duterte from 2006 to 2016,” the senator said.
   
The senator has revived his allegation that the President has as much as P2.4 billion in bank accounts which he failed to declare in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and NetWorth.
   
Trillanes said that the order of Duterte to the AMLC to disclose his net worth was just drama. Earlier he dismissed it as political bluff.
   
“Drama lang iyang AMLC directive na iyan. I would be surprised kung bigyan niya ng formal written order iyan,” said Trillanes in a radio interview over dzBB.
   
At the same time, he suggested to the President how his accounts should be made public.
   
“Bakit AMLC ang susulat? Sumulat ka sa bangko, gumawa ka ng waiver ng bank secrecy at ipakita mo transaction history ng account mo,” Trillanes stressed.
