‘Blame Ombudsman for Binay graft cases’


Don’t look at us.

Deputy Presidential spokesman Abigail Valte made such shot back at the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) which accused the Aquino administration of implementing double standard justice because the graft cases against Vice President Jejomar Binay’s wife, Elenita, has been revived by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).

The OSP is under the Office of the Ombudsman led by Ombudsman and former Supreme Court justice Conchita Carpio-Morales.

“The Office of the Special Prosecutor is under the Office of the Ombudsman which is an independent and separate entity from the Executive. It baffles me why they are putting the blame on us, accusing us of selective prosecution, when the Executive does not have a hand in running the affairs of the Office of the Ombudsman, much less the Office of the Special Prosecutor,” Valte, a lawyer, said in Radyo ng Bayan, referring to UNA spokesman and Rep. Tobias Tiangco of Navotas.

Mrs. Binay, a medical doctor, has been leveled four graft charges from the alleged overpricing of hospital beds at Ospital ng Makati when she was still a city mayor.

  1. Corrupting the Money of the People is one way ticket while a poor man or poor politician like Binay catapult to grandeur richness, Binay has not engaged in any business or investment except his a pure breed politician. Being mayor of Makati amassing illegal wealth left and right copying the masters of corruption. These filthy things happen during their watch. Who would beleive that they will become rich like this, because only in Philippines. Politicians after 2 or 5 years thier pocket is well fatten of string corruption. What shame but a shameless name.

  2. Why would a sensible press listens and prints garbage out of the mouth of Robby Tianco? The UNA is acting as if Merceditas Gutierrez is still the sitting Ombudsman chief. I also suspect that ABS CBN may have been into a demolition job against the administration in exchange for ratings. Much of their supposed to be scoop were aimed at discrediting this administration. Well bad news sells that’s why.

  3. If Dr. Binay has nothing to hide , why be scared of the court case ? You Dr. Binay and your husband Vive Pres. Jojo Binay should still explain to the people how you got filthy rich while in office ? You were simple simple people when you were not yet in government, but now you have acquired so much wealth , enriched yourselves while being public servants in the government..Please explain, Your family has been mum about it. Even Jojo Binay has not bothered to say something about your unexplained wealth up to this time.. Ang kapal ng mukha ng pamilya ninyo eh alam ng lahat hindi kayo mayaman when you joined the EDSA bruhahaha…

    • Yes, if what you said is true, it is a big challenge to the Binay, more so for the VP. BINAY who is planning to run for president in 2016. They owe the Filipino people an explanation, that is for sure.
