Game Plan Pursued
Salgado reiterates; “This only proves our point. Even after the Liberal Party ends its reign, the Ombudsman continues to pursue the game plan against Binay. It is a kind of episode in the yellow playbook,” he said in a statement. Aquino turned his wrath into Binay when the latter refused to help the ex-President to block Bongbong Marcos for the VP post. Instead, Binay urged him to allow a clean election to happen but to no avail.
Salgado said Morales denied the former vice president his right to answer the charges against him and his son. Makati City Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay Jr. was dismissed from the mayoralty. However, Makati residents installed his sister, Abby Binay as Makati Mayor during the 2016 elections. Salgado added that; In her haste to indict the former Vice President, the Ombudsman committed the act of denying him his right to answer the allegations against him.
Indictment is Ultimate Proof
The Binays’ indictment by the Ombudsman is the ultimate proof that the Liberal Party influence still exists despite not being in the most powerful spot anymore. This can be seen in the Congress with Gov. Imee Marcos’ case and is under close watch at the Supreme Court with Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno for Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo.
Now, citizen Jejomar Binay condemned the political persecution over his “hasty indictment” on graft and falsification charges. This is in connection with the alleged rigging of the P1.3-billion Makati Science High School. The overpriced Makati car park building is a separate thing that also falls in the same tune.
Former vice president Jejomar Binay Sr. and his son, “JunJun” are not surprised when Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, an Aquino appointee filed criminal charges of graft and falsification of public documents charges against them. This is for the allegedly anomalous procurement in the construction of the P1.3-billion Makati Science High School Building.

Cases Filed by the Ombudsman
Morales confirmed her order to file criminal charges against the Binays for allegedly conspiring to rig the procurement of the 10-storey science high school building on Kalayaan Avenue in Makati. The younger Binay was ordered charged with four counts of violation of Section 3(e) of the anti-graft law, and three counts of Falsification.
Witch Hunt against the Binays
Binay’s spokesperson Joey Salgado said the Binays’ indictment came as no surprise. He accused the Ombudsman of launching a “witch hunt against them. This is just to continue the election campaign of the Ombudsman as a “tool” of the Liberal Party. She just intends to politically persecute the enemies of her party including the current President. It is noted that Morales and Du30 are now having a war of words.
Prior to the 2016 election, there was a confusion why Senator Gringo Honasan chose to run as Vice President with Binay as his Presidential candidate. Meanwhile, Honasan’s ally Senator Juan Ponce Enrile endorsed Bongbong Marcos as VP. It even got more complicated when the Binay-Honasan tandem promoted Marcos despite Honasan’s running for the same position. Now, it is evident that their common goal is to support the return of Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake.
Bongbong Marcos’ Evidence in the Electoral Protest
Relevant evidence gathered by the Marcos camp to support his electoral protest against Leni Robredo was from the Binay Camp through its initiator Pastor Boy Saycon. It is remembered that Saycon accompanied whistle blowers of the alleged digital fiasco of Smartmatic that implicates the Comelec into its connivance with the alleged election fraud in a Senate hearing.
Former Vice President Jejomar Binay and wife Dra. Elenita Binay always looked happy to people who spot them in their Makati community recently or in photos posted in social media. They are unfazed by corruption scandals that discredit their family during elections. Senator Nancy Binay shared on Instagram a photo of her parents once during their past anniversary. They continue their tradition every Sunday to gather around the dinner table in the couple’s Makati residence. Something that many busy families are envious about today.

Corruption Allegations did not Affect Makati
The United Nationalist Alliance policy party of Jojo Binay that vows to be the opposite of a lazy and inept Aquino government. It occupies most seats in the Makati local government. Binay denies the corruption allegations against him. Those are just the maneuvers of his rivals. In their desperate attempt to undermine his presidential bid last year. their real colors show.
Infidelity Rumors Escalates after Endorsing Bongbong Marcos
Jejomar Binay admits to having an extra-marital affair in the past that almost breaks his marriage to Dr. Elenita Binay. That affair has long been over. Even before he becomes Vice President. The issue is raised as a black propaganda when he initially leads the presidential poll in 2016. It also escalates when he endorses Bongbong Marcos as Vice President. His wife and family already forgive him. Like any other human being, he is not perfect and also commits mistakes, he said.
Binay’s children, Junjun and Abby, shrugged off the rumors online about the illicit affair of their father. They took it a politically motivated. They know it in the past but the family and their mother are over it. Their patriarch really made a huge effort to win his wife back. Junjun added that the Binay couple went on a European cruise. He also exerted much efforts to make it up with his children. Abby stresses that “If there was any marital infidelity, it was between my Mom and my Dad.”
Binay can’t be concerned anymore on the judgment that his extra-marital affair is a reflection of his character as a public official – because he’s not anymore in office. All accusations especially the corruption cases are just politics. Once he enters politics, everything is public. He was prepared for that. Now both Jejomar and Elenita Binay enjoy the rewards of their efforts to genuinely serve the people and to nurture the family at the same time. Their cases can only be dismissed in due time. Politics are now handled by their children. Their role is upgraded into the consultancy level. They only do voluntary work when needed. Comfortable and happy life is already attained to the fullest. Though it is a belief that longer but blessed life is bestowed to those who continue to help the ones in need – such as the Binay!

Sandiganbayan granted the motion of former Makati City Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay to go to the United States for his daughter’s immunologist consultation. “The Court, over the prosecution’s opposition, hereby resolves to grant accused permission to travel abroad to Los Angeles, California, United States of America (USA) to accompany his daughter on her appointment with immunologist Dr. Ricardo Tan,” the resolution reads pertaining to the decision.
Binay is leaving the country on Aug. 15 and will return not later than Aug. 24 following a limited itinerary to Los Angeles, California only as designed by the court. P680,000 was travel bond that must be paid before he leaves.
This is in response to the motion submitted by Binay to the Sandiganbayan’s Third Division, asking the Court to allow him to travel to the US with his six-year-old daughter for an appointment with allergologist and immunologist Dr. Ricardo Tan to seek second opinion on his daughter’s staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome which is an uncommon disease – as advised by their local pediatrician.
The anti-graft court specified that Binay’s failing to comply with the conditions set in the resolution, would mean forfeiture of his bail and travel bond and the issuance of a warrant for his arrest would immediately follow.”

The once temporary mayor of Makati Romula “Kid” Peña might be under the scrutiny of now mayor Abby Binay but as long as results of the investigations are not yet submitted, mayor Abby will not have a concrete evidence yet on whether or not Peña ws the culprit in making the Makati services less efficient during his time.
Rumors did said that some services already deteriorated even during Junjun Binay’s time – like the medical services wherein people would line up for their scheduled tests and ended up going back the next day – but we never know for sure if this is true if there are no basis. So the best thing to do is to wait for the investigation results before announcing any anomalies.
According to the Inquirer: Mayor Binay noted that based on the recently released National Competitiveness Council’s (NCC) Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index, Makati slipped from third to fifth place in terms of government efficiency. “It is sad that dirty politics have derailed the painstaking efforts of the Binay administration to continuously improve the efficiency of government services,” Binay said in a statement. The mayor, however, lauded the fact that in NCC’s overall ranking of highly urbanized cities, Makati placed second while it was No. 1 in terms of economic dynamism, besting over 1,300 local government units.
