On her Facebook post, which was also shared to FRIENDS OF RODY DUTERTE Facebook page, she narrated that if a senator, like Antonio Trillanes, who is supposed to create laws can break them with impunity for the sake of destroying the reputation of a well-known bank depositor, like Rody Duterte, how can they be sure, that ordinary people like her will not experience the same thing?
Read her full caption to the photo below:
Today, I and my husband are going to BPI to close our accounts. The reason — loss of confidence and trust in BPI. If a senator, like Antonio Trillanes, who is supposed to create laws can break them with impunity for the sake of destroying the reputation of a well known bank depositor, like Rody Duterte, how can we, the ordinary people be assured that this will not be done to us?
The defeaning silence of the BPI management and its major stockholders, in condeming such violation of the bank secrecy law makes us tremble in the fact that only in a Philippine “Democracy” can laws be violated and broadcasted by the mainstream media without repercussion of punishment.
Our deposits may be insignificant but if no one in the management and major stockholders of BPI are concerned about this blatant violation, then we have no choice but to protect ourselves by closing our accounts with BPI.
If you feel the same way like we do, we encourage you to do the same.
On the other hand, BPI already issued a statement regarding the issue of breach of client confidentiality.

Meanwhile, the alleged accounts don’t contain millions but insisted that deposits could be just around P17,000 and P50,000.
These allegations led Mayor Duterte and his lawyer to ask Trillianes to file an affidavit stating his source of information and present it accordingly.
BPI is one of the oldest banks in the Philippines and also the third’s largest bank in terms of assets, market capitalization, and the country’s most profitable bank, Manila Bulletin reports.
Despite everything, Duterte fans remain adamant and solid to their candidate.
