He swears to find other venues that cannot control the result in favor of Du30.

Big Dismay for Trillanes
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was in great dismay when the impeachment complaint against the President was rejected by the House justice committee of congress. He warned that other groups will resort to other channels to seek justice and accountability of the country’s leader. He can only imply on the ICC.
Congress to ICC
The senator, however, gave limited details about the “other modes” that he talks about. The use of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has always been the next option. Nevertheless, if the case has no substance locally, how can it survive an international court? It is also bad timing for the president’s foes to hurdle him in any humanitarian bodies because they seem to have realized the actual situation of the drug war.
Trillanes also criticized House Majority leader Rodolfo Fariñas II for “not knowing” the difference between a witness and a complainant. He thought that the latter is a good lawyer but the fact that he cannot distinguish both convinced him that everything is maneuvered.
Willing to be Punished
Trillanes made his readiness known that he is willing to face future charges that the administration would throw upon him. He is however in denial of his guilt and still tries to push his luck. However, the tides seem to be not swaying on his side but rather against him. It’s only a matter of time that he can be castigated upon for all the troubles he had caused the government due to personal interests or false vindication.
