Junjun, foes face off at CA


Protagonists over the preventive suspension of Makati City Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay Jr. are slated to face off at the Court of Appeals (CA) on Monday and Tuesday over supposed defiance by Malacanang allies of a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the suspension.

Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas 2nd, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales had demanded lifting of the TRO, which was issued by the CA 6th Division.

They said the TRO is moot and academic, since Makati Vice Mayor Romulo Pena has been sworn in as acting city mayor.

The Binay camp has asked that Roxas, de Lima and Morales be cited for contempt, a move that prompted Morales to elevate the case before the Supreme Court (SC).

But the SC refused to stop the CA from implementing the TRO.

The Senate blue ribbon committee had ordered an inquiry into transactions and assets of Binay on the basis of the testimonies of Mercado,. Renato Bondal and Nicolas Enciso VI.

  1. It’s more like vs the “tutas” of Pnoy.. tsk tsk. Hope this would end soon since our nation have many more “real” problems that needs solving. Stop bullying the Binays, if you want to get more popular stop using them.

  2. jose btaganahan on

    It is widely known in legal circles that TROs are for sale if the price is right!

    I thought the Binays will not confront their accusers before the Senate committee because they would rather answer them before the Ombudsman. And yet now the Binays are fighting tooth and nail to stop the Ombudsman in performing its constitutionally mandated function.

    • binayaran dn pala ang SC dhil nagpalabas ng TRO sa comelec? yan ang tama …away sa korte hindi sa senado na ang mga senador na huwes ay kampi sa isang partido…

  3. silencio mapagmasid on

    But the SC refused to stop the CA from implementing the TRO. JOMAR CANLAS
    There is a pending petition in the Supreme Court…
    Kaya pala hindi nabibili dyaryo niyo mali mali ang istorya

  4. Morales was brilliant when she was in the SC. As Ombudsman in the pocket of Pnoy, her knowledge of the law deteriorated a thousand times.
