• Trillanes claims Binay probe part of his job

    8

    SENATOR Antonio Trillanes 4th on Friday maintained that his move to call for a Senate investigation on the controversial Makati City Hall building 2 involving Vice President Jejomar Binay and his mayor son Jun-jun is part of his duty as a senator and not because of politics.

    Trillanes said the issue on the alleged overpriced building is something that should be investigated by the Senate “because the integrity of the Vice President is on the line.”

    He said that by looking into the controversy the Senate is not only providing Binay the chance to clear his name, but also giving the Filipino the chance to know what the Vice President has been up to.

    “It’s our job as senators to look into these things. Do you expect us to just sweep this thing under the rug, so we won’t be accused to politicking or conducting a demolition job against a front runner in the presidential elections?” Trillanes said.

    But Sen. Nancy Binay said that if Trillanes really has evidence that would support the allegations against her father, the best thing for him to do is file an impeachment complaint against him.

    Trillanes also admitted that his move might not be good for his future because he is going after a potential winner in the 2016 presidential elections.

    When asked if his evidence is strong enough to be used in the filing of a possible im–peachment complaint against Binay, Trillanes said that he believes that he is standing on solid ground.

    The Vice President and his son along with 23 others are currently facing plunder and other graft charges at the Office of the Ombudsman in connection with the alleged “unconscionable overpricing” in the construction of the 11-story building amounting to P1.56 billion.

    The Senate blue ribbon sub-committee headed by Sen. Aquilino Pimentel 3rd will conduct the investigation on August 20.

    1. The Vice President’s son and daughter keep blabbering things against the accusation. It seems that they are guilty of something. Stop covering your family’s corruption. Looters.

    2. Jason Bantigue on

      The Binays should be investigated. The amount is so so huge. It’s even bigger than the luxurious hotels in the Philippines considering that it is only an 11 storey building.

    3. Hmmm. Let’s just see this upcoming hearing if Binay will survive this case. Too bad Trillanes’ got an evidence against this overprice building. Hihi.

    4. May punto si Trillanes, kung may reklamo sa mga politiko. parte ng kanilang trabaho na imbestigahan kung meron nga bang sapat na basehan ang reklamo at kung may nalalabag bang mga batas ang mga sangkot sa anomalya.

      Sa totoo lang, magandang pagkakataon ito sa mga Binay para magpaliwanag. Ipinagtataka ko lang paulit-ulit sila nagpapainterview sa media at doon sila nagpapaliwanag. Lumalabas tuloy na masyado silang defensive.

    5. He seems to be doing a lot of investigation. He started with Gloria, then Angelo Reyes, and next is Binay. He seems to know a lot of dirty linen. Let’s bring it on as Nancy Binay puts it.!

    6. Sayang itong si trillanes, sinira ang sarili dahil sa pagmamadali makuha niya ang ambisyon maging pangulo,nahawa sa pagka-abnormal ng pangulo,sa kagustuhan makakuha ng salapi galing sa budget na ipamumudmod ni abnoy para sa kandidatura niya nakalimutan ng mag-isip ng tama,utak gamo-gamo itong si trillanes kahit alam na masusunog pa tuloy parin nagpapagamit!!ang tawag sa mga ganito alistong tuliro,gumagawa ng utos na wala sa sarili!!walang bait sa sarili!

      • Isa ka pang bayaran ni binay! Sa tingin mo ba dapat bang imbestigahan ang isang 11 storey bldg na ngkakahalaga ng 2 billion plus o hindi! Eto ng c trillanes pag nag-ingay to may katuturan at may nangyayari. Paalala ko lng syo ung 2 kawatan na kinalaban nya noon na cla Gloria at enrile, saan na cla ngayon !

    7. I am not for binay in fact I have already said that if the choices for president will be limited to binay, roxas and pnoy come next election I will not vote anymore. But this trillanes is a super sip-sip a useless public officer whose pay from the taxes of people is a total waste of money. He should just shut up and sit quietly in the darkest corner of the senate hall in the hope that no one will notice him until he spends the remainder of his most undeserved term as senator and goes into retirement with our national sigh of relief that at last this sob is gone to hopefully total oblivion.
