Binay reportedly is in Cebu City today on a speaking engagement.

Earlier, reports said the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee chaired by Senator Teofisto Guingona will push through with its hearing today even if the Vice President will not attend.

2016The Guingona committee investigation picks on a resolution authored by Senator Antonio Trillanes seeking a probe on alleged anomalous transactions in the construction of the Makati City Parking Building during the administration of former Makati City Mayor Binay. 

Binay had refused to respond to invitation by the Blue Ribbon subcommittee chaired by Senator Koko Pimentel, which initially conducted the probe.

The Guingona committee set its own probe after Binay said it would attend if the investigation is conducted by the Blue Ribbon mother committee.

News5 reports that Binay had cancelled a speaking engagement today in Cebu City apparently to allow him to attend the Blue Ribbon hearing set this morning, November 6.
