MANILA (Mabuhay) – The Department of the Interior and Local Government has already served the Ombudsman’s suspension order on Makati Mayor Junjun Binay.

Binay’s suspension stems from the graft and plunder complaint filed against him and father, Vice President Jejomar Binay, over the allegedly overpriced Makati City Hall Building 2.

The Binays and their supporters are crying foul over what they say is a railroaded order.

We’re just wondering bakit pag Liberal Party yung may ganitong sitwasyon eh pinapayagan nila at nirerespeto nila yung prosesong legal na pwedeng gamitin nung isususpend na official, and we’re just wondering, parang nagmamadali,” said the mayor’s sister, Senator Nancy Binay.

Before the suspension order was served, policemen were sent to the Makati City hall. The city government estimated that at least 2,000 cops were deployed to the city hall.

It’s a scene described by Sen. Binay as overkill.

We’re wondering why in Mamasapano 392 lang yung pinadala dito sa Makati 2,000 may kasama pang SAF personnel,” she said.

But the Philippine National Police (PNP) said the public should just look at the end result, which is the successful serving of the order and the prevention of violence.

Sa isyu ng ginamit na pwersa sa Makati, ang importante ay gumamit ang ground commanders ng tamang pwersa para effectively matulungan ang DILG-NCR na maserve iyung suspension order at the same time ma-ensure natin yun seguridad ng lahat,” said PNP spokesperson Generoso Cerbo Jr. (MNS)
