Vice President Jejomar Binay loses his immunity on June 30, 2016 after his tenure as Vice President comes to an end. Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales saw a window of opportunity as per her discussion with journalists last May 19, 2016. She said that the outgoing Vice President can expect at least one case to be filed against him in connection with the P2.8-billion Makati city hall parking project when Binay was still a mayor.
Binay denied all accusations and quite confident that the Ombudsman will go nowhere with her intention – just like the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee.
However, this is quite an interesting development to follow. Will Conchita ends up to be a big liar – or will Binay be in trouble?
