It is a pity that Senator Antonio Trillanes is still detained. However, despite of it, he could still manage to perform his duties as a senator. Do you think he deserves to be released?

he should. The fact that the people voted for him means that he's got public trust. I'm not really a fan of what Trillanes did during the oakwood mutiny but he made himself clear that the're not trying to grab power or a coup de tat. They just want to raise a very valid issue concerning corruption in the military. Raising their concern using our due process is just like facing a blank wall since most of those that are involved are those in the military top brass who would also decide on the case. Trillanes got people's sympathy and that's the main reason that he won in the elections. The sad part is, instead of addressing a very valid issue, those who were in power tried everything to silencehim and somewhat they succeeded. I think it's about time that the corruption in the military is exposed (well, everyone knows about this already but people would rather see with a blind eye). If Pnoy is really determined to stop corruption, then the military should be one where he can poke his nose at.

Yes you are right. The people gave their trust on him to become public servant.

For me he dont deserve it because as we know already his background. May be if he will release he do what he had done before or worst than that.

I think he should not be released since he had disobeyed the law by being one of the prominent person in the mutiny. Although I agree with their ideas still I won't approve to do that to the government. It is difficult to weigh the situation but he should be able to exercise his rights of being a senator. Maybe he should be allowed to attend Senate hearings but he has guard that would surround him and he should be back to prison after senate meetings. Only in special and important occasions he should be allowed to go outside.
