Philippines senator Antonio Trillanes arrested after weeks holed up in Senate

Philippines senator Antonio Trillanes (L) leaves a police station after being arrested in Manila on September 25, 2018.

(CNN)A prominent Philippines lawmaker and critic of President Rodrigo Duterte who has been holed up in the country's Senate has left accompanied by police officers after an arrest warrant was ordered by a Manila court.

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was arrested on charges of rebellion, following an earlier move by the president to revoke an amnesty granted to the senator for his involvement in a number of coup attempts that happened over a decade ago.
"I will go with the arresting team when there's a warrant, no matter how unjust that warrant may be," Trillanes said, according to CNN Philippines.
    The Makati Regional Trial Court issued the arrest warrant after the country's Supreme Court refused to back the senator over the validity of the amnesty.
      Images posted by the Manila-based network showed Trillanes having his mugshot taken as part of the booking procedure.
      The issuance of the warrant brings to a head a standoff which began in late August, when Duterte placed an ad in national newspape
