MANILA-Vice President Jejomar C. Binay today decried the recent move of the Senate Blue Ribbon Subcommittee to drag his youngest daughter into their effort to malign his name.
“Alam mo ba nakakalungkot, ako'y sinisiraan pati ba naman 'yung anak ko na bunso? Isinasama pa sa kinukutya at hinahamak. Bahala na Diyos sa kanila,” Binay said in Camarines Sur.
“Sobra na po. Sobra na,” he added.
Sen. Allan Peter Cayetano on Thursday presented photos posted on Instagram by Binay’s youngest daughter showing her inside the Batangas estate owned by Sunchamp.
Binay said that contrary to Cayetano’s claims, having a photo taken inside the property does not prove ownership of the estate.
“Ano po bang masamang magpa-litrato. Yung place na iyon, may lease hold iyon. Tumatanggap ng bisita ang may ari noon. So evidence po ba iyon na nagpa-litrato ka sa isang lugar at sinabi mong in this place, ikaw na ang may ari? Hindi naman siguro evidence of ownership iyon,” he said.
Binay also slammed the blatant disregard for protocol of the senate subcommittee when they prevented United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) Interim Secretary General JV Bautusta and UNA Interim President Tobias Tiangco from attending the hearing.
“Wala ng respeto sa protocol. Si Cong. Toby Tiangco pinaalis at balita ko binitbit pa palabas,” Binay said.
“Yan po ang tatak Cayetano. Akala niyo kung sino. 'Yun na lang per protocol na lang. Pati naman ho 'yung abogado, 'yung karapatan ng mga pinatawag doon na magkaroon ng abogado pinaalis pa. Ewan ko na, iba na ho talaga ang batas na nalalaman nitong mga taong 'to sa Senado,” he added.
Binay also appealed to members of the subcommittee to raise the standards of politics and not resort to mudslinging.
