Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was spotted by several netizens at Changi Airport in Singapore.
In the photos posted by several Facebook fan pages, it shows that the Senator is taking to someone over the phone. The second photo shows the Senator talking to a Singaporean.
In the luggage carried by the senator, it seems that he’s staying in Singapore for several days.
News reports says that Trillanes was scheduled to visit a branch of DBS bank, where President Duterte claims that Trillanes has 193,000. Duterte did not specify the currency of the said amount, but according to the documents circulated on Facebook, it seems7 that the currency is Singaporean Dollars (SGD)
Trillanes said that he visited Singapore to debunk the claim of President Rodrigo Duterte that he’s hiding money in the said country.
“Dito mapapakita na hindi lang sa wala akong tinatago, kung hindi kung gaano siya kasinungaling,” Trillanes told reporters.

According to President Duterte, a certain “Antonio F. Trillanes” got a bank account in Singapore. The whole name of the senator is Antonio Fuentes Trillanes IV.
He’s also scheduled to visit another bank in Singapore, where he was rumored to deposited big amount of money.
“Kung ano man yan, may the IV man yan o walang IV, sarado man yan or existing account, joint or single, lahat yan papabuksan natin. Para makita ng mga kababayan natin na ginagamit ni Duterte yung kapangyarihan niya para siraan yung oposisyon at para i-divert yung issue palayo doon sa issue laban sa kanya at doon sa kanyang anak na involved na illegal drugs,” Trillanes said.
He also challenged again the President to sign the waiver to prove that he’s not hiding something to the people.
“I went to such great lengths to prove na wala akong tinatagong nakaw na yaman. Siya nga ngayon, may paratang sa kanya, kailangan ipakita niya na hindi siya kurakot. Pumirma siya ng waiver, ngayon na,” Trillanes said.
It’s not yet sure if the Senator is also going to the other countries where he was rumored to possessed a bank account.
According to the document posted by Davao Breaking News, Trillanes had a bank account in DBS Bank Alexandra Branch in Singapore with an account number of 11780 00281 60 2.
Davao Breaking News also claimed that Senator Trillanes had a joint bank account with a certain Robert Fong in Hongkong Shanghai Bank Raffles Branch with an account number of 001 672 99151 2 7.
Its not yet sure if the documents possessed by Davao Breaking News, PTV-4 journalist Erwin Tulfo and President Duterte are all the same.
Last week, President Duterte accused Senator Trillanes of possessing several off shore bank accounts which he didn’t declare.
