In the midst of the controversial property in Batangas, this time, a daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay is being brought into the issue.
The controversy allegedly points Vice President Jejomar Binay is the real owner following her Instagram photos and caption she had posted implied that her family owns the 350-hectare estate.
During Thursday hearing of Senate blue ribbon subcommittee , Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano revealed photos and posts by Joanna Marie Bianca Binay in a slide presentation.The committee has been investigating Binay’s alleged ownership of the Sunchamp Agri-Tourism Park.
Several pictures supposedly gave the impression that the daughter went to the park in June 2012, on December 25, 2012, and in November 2013.
Binay’s daughter mentioned in the caption as “our place in Batangas.”
“Tingnan nyo po, sabi nya in our place in Batangas,” Cayetano pointed out.
That’s when the senator asked Martin Subido, lawyer of alleged Binay dummy, businessman Antonio Tiu, if they are planning to file a case against Binay’s daughter for her claim that the property belonged to her family.
Tiu has denied the “dummy” claims.
“Your honor, again, it’s not contrary to the rights of Sunchamp,” Subido responded, alluding to Tiu’s Sunchamp Real Estate Development Corp., operating the property.
When Sen. Cayetano what was the statement means, Subidio replied:
“It could mean a lot of things, your honor."
The senator asked, “In what world?”
“In any sense of a man’s world your honor,” Subido added.
Then a photo posted on December 25, 2012, was showed, having Vice President himself holding a microphone in it.
However, Binay’s spokesman, Cavite Governor Jovic Remulla, said the pictures could not be used as proof of ownership.
“Nag-videoke lang, may-ari ka na?” Remulla asked.
Remulla explained that Binay’s family is very vocal that they are using the facilities and have been visiting Rosario. His wife, Dr. (Elenita) Binay has a flower farm in the province. Remulla said the photos are not enough to prove that Binay owns the property.
