A Catholic priest within the Philippines is set to face trial on expenses of “conspiracy to commit sedition” over an alleged plot to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.
Father Flavie Villanueva is a fierce critic of the president’s “war on drugs”, which since July 2016 has seen 1000’s killed in police operations.
He has been accused, alongside 10 others, of being behind a viral video collection that the federal government says tarnished the president’s repute.
Father Flavie denies the costs.
