Duterte Says He’ll Quit If Senator Proves $40 Million in Illegal Wealth

  • Philippine leader defends daughter, partner from accusations
  • Senator Trillanes revives allegations brought up last year

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said he’s ready to resign if an opponent can prove allegations that he illegally amassed 2 billion pesos ($40 million).

Senator Antonio Trillanes, who brought a plunder complaint against Duterte during last year’s presidential campaign, added that the president also failed to disclose 321 million pesos in bank transactions from his common-law wife and daughter. Trillanes said he got the documents from a “concerned citizen.”
