The senator who has been also the greatest critic of Duterte said this claim after he received an information about Leonardo who leads a group of alleged rouge policemen responsible for the extrajudicial killings (EJKs) of suspected drug dealers and drug users.

"Based on the information that we got there is a PNPA class which leads this activity. We identified one of them as (a certain) Supt. Leonardo. He is their point person. I forgot the first name," said Trillanes in a media forum.

He also said that Leonardo's men are active PNP members pointing out that it isn't Dela Rosa who leads the group.

Trillanes announced that the information came from PNP senior commanders who are involved in the operations.

He said that the alleged Leonardo can approach Duterte directly due to their close ties and to his son, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte.

The senator has claimed that Leonardo is the Sonny Buenaventura of Duterte's Philippine Death Squad which was mentioned by self-cpnfessed hired killer SPO3 Arthur Lascanas who paid him P3 million for the assassination plot of broadcaster Jun Pala in 2003.

Trillanes gave this statement when sought to comment on the move of DOJ Chief Vitaliano Aguirre II to downgrade from murder to homicide the charges against Marcos and 18 other officers involved in the killings of Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinos last November 2016.

"Naniniwala ako na utos ito ni President Duterte,"said Trillanes.
