LOOKING BACK: Binay and the 2007 Manila Pen siege

Trillanes and other personalities were detained at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City that evening, and faced charges of rebellion. In 2010, newly-elected President Benigno Aquino III granted amnesty to military and police personnel involved in coup attempts during the Arroyo administration, freeing Trillanes from detention.

Journalists were also brought that same night to Camp Bagong Diwa, where they were interrogated before being released. They filed a class suit for the arrest, but the case was dismissed by the Makati RTC. (READ: From Manila Pen to Bicutan: When the media became the story)

Trillanes and Binay met the day after the siege. The senator narrated that Binay brought with him a lawyer from the human rights group MABINI, and that he was apologetic.

"Come to think of it. He brought along a lawyer not really to help us, but to make sure he would not be dragged in the case," Trillanes told Rappler.

Binay's camp had already refuted Trillanes' story, saying that the senator is trying to "rewrite history" with a different version of "his Manila Peninsula siege, which ended in a fiasco," and that this is another reason the Vice President was right in calling off the proposed televised debate between the two.

Binay's spokesman, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla, even revealed that some members of the Magdalo group have worked in the piggery in the controversial Rosario, Batangas property.

But if the senator's claim is proven true, Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago said such actions already constitute the crime of conspiracy to commit rebellion, and could land Binay in jail. – Rappler.com
