Senator Alan Peter Cayetano revealed that a lawyer connected to Vice President Jejomar Binay has been offering P5 million to P20 million to suppliers for any information of anomalous projects of his wife Mayor Lani Cayetano in Taguig City.
Subcommittee chair Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III, Senator Cayetano and Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV are leading the investigation of the alleged anomalies in Makati City during VP Binay’s term as Mayor.
“The lawyer is willing to give P5 million to P20 million for any information of any anomalies during the time of my wife,” the senator said.
Cayetano believes the lawyer is from the Binay’s camp even though the suppliers have refused to name the lawyer for they also have contracts with the Makati City government.
“Instead of answering the issues, they’re trying to discredit the people investigating them, and the irony is that Binay was always hitting GMA for doing that method,” Cayetano said.
Cayetano doubts his critics can drag up any corruption practices against his wife.
“I’m not saying that there is no corruption at all, but I can say that she will hunt down anyone who is engaging in corruption in Taguig,” Cayetano said.
