Ombudsman orders dismissal of Mayor Junjun Binay

The Office of the Ombudsman has ordered the dismissal of suspended Makati City Mayor Jejomar ‘Junjun’ Binay Jr. The dismissal order is in light with the allegedly overpriced Makati City Hall Parking Building also known as Makati City Hall Building II built by Hilmarc’s Construction.

“Ombudsman orders the dismissal from the service & perpetual disqualification of Mayor Jun-Jun Binay and Masbate Governor Rizalina Lañete,” the Ombudsman said in a statement.

Though the order is immediately executory, the young Binay can appeal the Ombudsman’s decision.

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales said Binay was dismissed for his dishonesty from service, among others.
