The Sandiganbayan’s Third Division allowed former Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay Jr. to travel to the United States from August 15 to 24 to accompany his youngest daughter who is scheduled to have medical tests in Los Angeles.
Binay posted a cash travel bond of P608,000 which the court required.
The court also directed Binay to stick to his itinerary and to be in the country not later than August 24. He was also ordered to present proof that his daughter underwent a medical check-up upon his return.
Earlier, the court issued hold departure orders barring Binay and several others from leaving the country without its prior permission while the graft, malversation, and falsification charges filed against them are pending. Binay was charged in connection with the alleged anomalous bidding for the construction of the Makati City Hall Parking Building.
