Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales said ” there was strong evidence presented during the administrative adjudication of the complaint that proved Junjun Binay was guilty of grave misconduct and serious dishonesty over the alleged overpriced construction of the P2.28-billion structure, also referred as the Makati parking building.”
Morales said Binay failed to ensure that the contracts the city government was entering into were fair, reasonable and advantageous to the government. Here is the full statement.
Joey Salgado, spokesperson for the Binay family, said the Ombudsman’s order was meant to stop the younger Binay from running in 2016.
Bistado na ang Ombudsman. Minadali nito ang order dahil sa Lunes ay magsisimula na ang filing ng CoCs para sa 2016 election. Ni wala pang kopya ng order na natanggap si Mayor. Dismissal by press release ang ginawa ng Ombudsman.
Gusto nilang pigilan ang pagtakbo ni Mayor Junjun. Pero nagkakamali sila dahil hanggang walang final judgement sa kaso, pwedeng tumakbo sa eleksyon si Mayor Junjun Binay.
Klarong-klaro ang panggigipit sa pamilyang Binay. Malinaw ang bias at selective justice ng Ombudsman na bahagi ng conspiracy ng mga government agencies kasama ang Senado at ang AMLAC na siraan at gipitin si VP Binay at ang kanyang pamilya dahil lang sa hangad n’ya na maglingkod sa mahihirap.
