Brother and sister meddling tandem

First it was Kris Aquino trying to pay off (in political kind) senators to back Kiko Pangilinan's bid for the Senate presidency, now his brother President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III is trying to spring another Kiko supporter -- alleged rebel and "Senator" Antonio Trillanes from the slammer.
[... Noynoy] added: "[Trillanes] was imprisoned because of Oakwood. My opinion is, and that is just my individual opinion, the fiscal should not have let that case prosper. There are several other cases but the coup d’etat case has specific requirements, which were not present. I think there was injustice there."

Aquino said he will leave it to de Lima to review the case thoroughly. He added that the government will leave it to the court to decide on Trillanes's petition asking that he be allowed to participate in the Senate sessions.

In that case, why not just leave it up to the process to deliver the outcome of the case, Mr President?

Trillanes is one among ten senators who are supposedly backing Pangilinan's bid for Senate leadership. The other nine are:

- Bong Revilla
- Lito Lapid
- Franklin Drilon
- Serge Osmena
- Francis Escudero
- Teofisto Guingona
- Ralph Recto
- Juan Ponce Enrile
- Jinggoy Estrada

They must be Kris Aquino fans.
