    British netizen thanks Stephen Sackur for unveiling Trilllanes’ mask

    Malcolm Conlan, a British citizen but a Filipino at heart, posted an open letter of commendation and gratitude to Stephen Sackur of BBC for the controversial episode of his show entitled “Hard Talk” where he had Philippine Senator Antonio Trillanes IV as his guest.


    Claiming that the particular interview Sackur had with Trillanes unveiled the senator’s groundless and “erroneous” attempt to file a criminal case in the ICC against current Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, Conlan wrote that:

    “I am writing to you [an open letter of feedback addressed to BBC]  to personally congratulate Stephen Sackur on the excellent episode of Hard Talk this week, where the special guest was Philippine Senator Antonio Trillanes.”

    “It was very clear from the start of the interview that Stephen had gone to a great deal of effort to understand the real issues many Filipinos are greatly concerned over, especially the relentless campaign by Senator Trillanes to pursue in my personal view, a false, misguided and erroneous legal campaign against President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and his War On Drugs at the ICC (International Criminal Court,” Malcolm Conlan wrote.

    Malcolm Conlan furthered his letter commending Stephen Sackur for being “understanding” of the present situation, or crisis perhaps, faced by the Philippines.

    “I am particularly grateful to Stephen for his understanding of the popularity of the President and his team….It is very clear that Stephen although being unbiased in his show, was able to challenge senator Trillianes over his constant negative criticism of President Duterte. Stephen has yet again demonstrated as he did in his previous episode from the Philippines, that he understands the real issues faced by Filipinos back home,” Malcolm Conlan claimed.

    The British national also affirmed that a lot of Filipinos are appreciative of Sackur and BBC’s efforts to showcase the Philippines “in a more positive light” despite the heightened criticisms Duterte had been receiving regarding his campaign against drugs and corruption.


    “I can say without doubt that many Filipinos back home in the Philippines and indeed Overseas Filipino workers (OFW's) including some of my own family are very appreciative of the work by the BBC and Stephen Sackur in showcasing the Philippines in a more positive light, particularly at a time when some of the worlds media seek to potray President Rodrigo Duterte in a negative light over his War on Drugs, Crime and Corruption, all of which are in keeping with his desire to improve life in the Philippines for the Filipino people,” Conlan wrote.

    To conclude his letter, Conlan once again expressed his gratitude towards the BBC reporter on behalf of his family and of the 16 million Filipinos worldwide.

    “Once again, please pass on my grateful thanks to Stephen from my family and I am sure at least 16 million Filipinos worldwide. Best regards," Malcolm Conlan ended.
