2007 - despite still ongoing court hearings because of his role in the "Oakwood Mutiny" Trillanes was allowed to run for a position in the Philippine Senate - he won.
November 29, 2007 - during one of the court hearings, Trillanes and his men suddenly walked-out of the courtroom and soon walked into the Manila Peninsula Hotel, just a few meters away from Oakwood and setup a "control center" there.
This latest incident, although had more action - teargas was used, ended up peacefully a few hours later.
Maybe he'll run for president in 2010...
As for now we have a 12mn-5am curfew as a security precaution.
It's either we Filipinos have a very short memory, or are just very forgiving people.
