Makati Mayor Binay ready to face political opponents in a senate probe

Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay said the city government of Makati is ready to face a Senate probe regarding the most expensive parking building in the country, the 12-storey parking/office building of Makati City Hall.

“They were made as part of an organized demolition scheme against my father, Vice President Jejomar C. Binay,” the mayor said. Father and son Binay along with other city officials are facing a plunder complaint.

“The Commission on Audit has already cleared the project of overpricing allegations in an intensive audit in February. The findings underscore our position from the start that these allegations by our political opponents do not have factual and legal basis.”

“We are hopeful that some senators, especially those who belong to the same parties as our local opponents in Makati, will set aside personal and political agendas during the hearing,” the young Binay said.

“Our political opponents are desperately grasping at straws, and are intent on destroying our credibility through these malicious, false and baseless accusations. But we have nothing to hide. The building was constructed in accordance with the government procurement laws and processes, and we trust that all relevant transactions will bear close scrutiny,” Binay added.
