Senator Nancy Binay on Monday came to her her father’s defense telling his critics that Vice President Jejomar Binay is not the real haciendero or landowner in the Aquino Cabinet. Currently, the vice president is being accused of owning a 350-hectare estate in Batangas.
"Hindi naman ang ating Vice President ang Cabinet secretary na haciendero, ‘di ba?" Binay told reporters.
"Hindi ko alam kung bakit paulit-ulit na dinidikit sa amin ‘yong hacienda na ‘yon. Hindi kami ang haciendero."
When she was asked who she was making reference to, her reply was: "Sino ba? I-check niyo na lang sa mga Cabinet secretaries kung sino doon ang haciendero."
Ever since the controversy erupted, Vice President Binay has denied repeatedly the allegations and made it firm that he will not attend the Senate’s investigation on corruption accusations lunged at him.
