MANILA (Mabuhay) – Vice President Jejomar Binay denied Wednesday the statement of former vice mayor Ernesto Mercado that it was normal in Makati for the officials to get kickbacks from projects.
“He is talking from his personal experience. ‘Yun ang basehan ng kanyang espekulasyon. It is one thing to accuse (and another) thing to prove,” he said.
On the allegation of Mercado that Binay has motive to kill him, the vice president said “you should know more about the guy.”
“Hindi ako magtataka kung sa susunod pang mga araw ay magwawagayway ang taong ito ng mga pekeng logbook, ledger, tseke at kung anu-ano pang dokumento laban sa akin,” he said.
“Hindi ako magtataka kung bukas makalawa ay may magpapa-ambush at ituturo ako na may kagagawan dahil iyan ang direksyon ng kanilang telenovelang testimonya sa Senado,” Binay added.
He said his detractors will move to remove him from his post.
“Meron pang gagawin sila upang ako ay hindi magtagal sa puwesto,” he said. (MNS)
