Sticking with Binay a “kiss of death”

BINAY’s ASSET: P2.5M IN 1988, P60M in 2013

jejomarCharges of massive corruption hurled against Vice President Jejomar Binay were expected to shoo away political supporters in his bid to capture the presidency in the 2016 elections.

Vice President Jejomar Binay is running for president under the opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) of former President now Manila City Mayor Joseph Estrada.

p14 (3)Being associated with Binay is a “kiss of death,” said Nicolas Enciso, one of the complainants in a plunder case against Binay and his son, Makati City Mayor Junjun Binay.

The Senate blue ribbon committee is investigating alleged overpricing in the Makati Parking building Phase 2, a P2.7 billion project started when the Vice President was still the mayor of Makati City.

Appearing in an earlier hearing of the Senate committee, former Vice Mayor Ernesto Mercado, a former political ally of the Binays, said Vice President Binay, as then city mayor, got 13 percent commission from  city government projects including the Makati Parking Building, which is at the center of the plunder rap filed by Enciso and lawyer Renato Bondal.

Binay said all the allegations against him and his family are black propaganda and his camp said Binay’s wealth — P2.5 million in 1988 when he first sat as mayor and jumping to P60 million in 2013 — was derived from the businesses of the Vice President and his wife, Dr. Elenita Binay.
