MANILA (Mabuhay) – Senator Antonio Trillanes IV will be presenting two new allegations against Vice President Jejomar Binay when the Senate blue ribbon subcommittee resumes its investigation on the anomalies linked to the Binay family this August.
“Merong dalawang bagong exposé,” Trillanes said in a text message to reporters Monday without elaborating.
“Sa Aug. 20 at 26 ay may hearing po kami ulit dito kay VP Binay dahil nai-ready na ‘yung ilalabas natin,” he added.
On Sunday, Senator Aquilino Pimentel III, who chairs the subcommittee, said they will not conclude their investigation until Binay’s trusted aide of Binay, Gerry Limlingan, who has also been linked to the anomalies, shows up.
“Hangga’t wala si Limlingan, hindi kami hihinto. Sa dalas mabanggit ng pangalan niya, kailangan talagang mahanap itong taong ito,” he said, adding Limlingan is vital to their investigation.
Binay, who linked the allegations to his expected run for the president next year, is accused of rigging bids, overpricing contracts, and involvement in illegal transactions during his term as mayor of Makati.(MNS)
