Former senator Antonio Trillanes said the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos whitewashed the probe into the assassination of former senator Ninoy Aquino.
Aquino was killed on August 21, 1983.
Trillanes said Marcos ordered Aquino’s assassination.
“Instead na hanapin niya (Marcos) at parusahan yung mastermind niyan, ang ginawa pa nila ay iba’t ibang paraan para i-whitewash o pagtakpan ‘yung katotohanan,” he said.
He explained that it was obvious Aquino’s escorts new about the plot to kill the late senator.
“Imbes na poproteksyunan nila yung VIP na ineeskortan nila ay sila pa ay lumayo kay Ninoy. To compare yung assassination attempt kay US President Ronald Reagan, yung US Secret Service, talagang they took a bullet for President Reagan,” Trillanes said.
