Binay: Leak may be in COA

MANILA, Philippines—The camp of Vice President Jejomar Binay has urged Commission on Audit (COA) Chair Grace Pulido-Tan to look into the possibility that someone in her agency was leaking its reports to the media as part of a demolition campaign against Binay.

“We have it on good authority that personalities inside COA informed the media about the Friendship Suites complaint and Heidi Mendoza’s Sandiganbayan appearance in the case involving former (Makati City) Mayor Elenita Binay,” Binay’s spokesperson, Joey Salgado, said.

The COA had initiated an investigation into the 10-year-old Makati Friendship Suites project in Guadalupe.

Salgado was reacting to Tan’s statement that came out in the newspapers the other day that it was not her agency that had leaked the documents being cited in the media against Binay.

“While we respect COA’s mandate, the fact is that some personalities in COA appear to be using the agency’s authority for a political demolition job against the Vice President,” Salgado said.

    Uy, si Binay, takot na takot. 

    LALABAS din ang BAHO ng pamilya niyo!

  • blainz

    To whoever is leaking the reports: keep exposing the little dark malignant spirit!

    And please upload scans of all pertinent documents to Wikileaks and similar sites to preserve the record for posterity.

    Be careful as a scared politician is a dangerous politician.

    Binay is corruption personified

    takot sa sariling baho! ilabas para mapatunayan.  ang lakas ng panagarap maging presidente hehehehe.

    Binay … GMA … ano ang pinag kaiba? Dapat ilabas talaga lahat. Mukang maraming pang hindi alam ang taong bayan …

    • 1GeorgeTolentino2

      meron, si Binay fanboi ni Cory! 

  • wawangpenoy

    Kaya kailangan, ipasa na ang FOI Bill.  Alam kaya nitong kampo ni Binay na kaya sila natataranta e dahil may tinatago talaga sila. Kahit milyung taon pa yang audit na yan, kung walang baho, walang dapat ikabahala.

    Etong si Salgado, atat na atat na. By now, I’m sure he already has made up a list of milking cows in the government. If and when he becomes the little president, all the anomalies of past administration will pale in comparison.

    MGA KABABAYAN!! MAAWA NAMAN KAYO SA PINAS. KITANG-KITA NA AT AMOY NA AMOY NA ANG BAHO NG MGA BINAY. PARANG AWA NYO NA, HUWAG NYONG IBOTO ANG KAHIT SINO SA PARTIDO NYA SA 2013. THE RESULT IN 2013 WILL BE A REFLECTION OF THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

    Ano bang demolition job? Pano ba nasusustain ang lifestyle ng pamilya mo? Di naman kailangang maging henyo para makita na kahina-hinala ang pamumuhay n’yo.

  • ben311

    kay katapusan ka rin !!!

  • randyaltarejos

    I think it is unfair for COA to favor the  interests of only one media entity as a means to destroy the image of VP Jejomar Binay. In fact, it’s too early to engage in any demolition job.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q3QGG5QHBLRMZTIYWUFURY6J2E Night

    Corrupt ka lang talaga Binay…. wag ka na mag inarte diyan

  • johndcross1

    Bakit ka Salgado puro depende ka sa bansot na Binay na yan.  Malayo pa ang halalan natataranta ka na.  Kung walang anomalia ang nagawa ng familia Binay, huwag kang magamba total maski papaano hindi mamanalo ang bansot Binay na yan!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/TP6YY66XPT63YFGHDKYTMIO4CM Daniel

    Anong pinagsasabi ni Binay?…… “Demolition Job”?……. Nang lumutang ang “issue” na ito sa kanyang asawa, ang naging paratang ni Binay ay “political harassment” at “politically motivated” diumano ang mga hakbang na ginagawa ng kanyang mga kritiko! ……Anak ng toklay naman, ang babaw! Sabi nga ng isang Congressman, “Palusot”!!!

    Sa totoo lang, walang “demolition job”, walang “harassment” at hindi ito “politically motivated”, sapagkat nangingibabaw ang pagnanais ng publiko at layunin ng “administration” na “isa-ayos” ang bawat ahensya ng gobiyerno.

    Kung ang mga dokumento at ebidensya ang pagbabatayan, ang asawa mo ay isa sa mga “nagkalat” sa Makati……Ano ang resulta?……. Nangangamoy ang “baho”!!!!!!!……Dapat lang na “linisin”……….para wag pamugaran ng mga “maligno”.

    Walang dapat ikabahala ang sinomang pinuno sa ginagawang “paglilinis” ng
    “administration” kung ang kanyang pamamahala ay masasabing
    “on-the-level”.

  • EdgarEdgar

    Regardless of who leaked the info to the media, the leak was intentional. The Binays should know that. And we can expect some retaliation from the Binays. Let the show begin.

    • Malik62

       Knowing the Binays they will not take this sitting down.  What keeps Binay from moving is the U.S..  The U.S. warned him not to do something drastic.

  • Joe Umali

    Lets go, go, go Coa  Open that big can of worms in Makati as well as the Binay’s cabinet that is full of skeletons.

  • calixto909

    Binay, you wanted to become a president come 2016 but your tact to propagandize your moves exemplifies that of a TRAPO. Dance the music that you played, refrain from involving an escape goat because by doing so, you plunge deeper yourself to derision.

  • Handiong

    Why is Binay’s camp so afraid that the Friendship Suites complaint had been made public? If there is something in the complaint that will demolish Binay, then let Binay be demolished.

    COA doing a good job.  Thumbs up.
    Mr. Clean has plenty of dirt under his rug.

    • Guest

      Magkano kaya naman ang talent fee ni COA commissioner Heidi Mendoza from
      Sec. Mar Roxas for being part of the demolition job against Binay?

      • jeffrey_01

        you sure Binay is clean?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

    Ang  kampo ni Mr. Maligno ay masyadong suspetsoso. Takot na takot sa kanilang anino. Kung wala ka namang kasalanan kahit ano pa ang ibato sayo hindi yan uubra. Yun ay kung wala kang kasalanan. Mukhang guilty kasi. Sabagay paano nga naman kasi nging bilyonaryo si Binay samantalang Mayor lang naman siya at puro free legal assistance naman ang pagiging abogado nya. So nangurakot kaya yumaman, di ba. Mr Maligno Binay, malinis ang COA ngayon. Si Commissioner Heidi Mendoza walang kinikilingan yan!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

    Dalawa ang black eye ni malignong Binay. Talo si Pakyaw na kapartido nya tapos lumabas na naman ang isang anomalya nya. Kurakot talaga ang maitim na maligno.

    FULL STEAM AHEAD COA.

    Being the watchdog of government resources, it’s your constitutional mandate to post-audit and determine if the meager coffers are appropriately spent in accordance with laws and government auditing rules.

    When the ghosts are afraid of the dark, something must be really wrong…

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Abdul-Rashid/100004367910013 Abdul Rashid

       Before going after corrupt officials COA must rid its ranks with corrupt employees. I know a lot from your ranks that have questionable lifestyle. The should be investigated first or at least resign to avoid embarrassment. COA EMPLYEES assigigned in juicy departments like AFP, DECS, DENR etc. Go ahead and start cleaning your ranks and I will also believe in “Matuwid na daan.” WHOA!!!

    bakit po moderator …bawal po ba mag-comment sa corruption TUNGKOL sa BILYONES na UNREMITTED taxes CTA decision naman yun a…at halos  10,000 employees na walang TIN….nasa news naman mga yan e..NEWS item..2006: the alleged ghost employees that are under the payroll of city hall could account for 80 percent of the 12,000 registered employees based on the records of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) which showed that most of the employees does not have taxpayer identification numbers (TINs) for the past eight years.
    Francisco Ibay, former councilor of the 1st District of Makati City, held a press conference in Pasay City and showed documents to prove his claim that since 1999, there are at least 9,600 employees at the Makati City Hall without TINs.
    He explained that under existing law, all employees must have a TIN before they are employed by city hall under Mayor Jejomar Binay.
    He said that official documents provided by his informants at the city hall indicated that employees that do not have TINs reached 9,792 workers in 2001, 7,597 in 2003, and 8,068 in 2005.”
    wow 12,000 employees PAPANO kakasya sa city hall lahat yan?
    ..dapat IMBESTIGAHAN ng coa  yan mga walang TIN na yan…ikumpara lang sa SUBMITTED na ALPHA list ng makati city hall at GSIS, SSS at NSO… kung 12,000 ang empleyado tapos halos 10,000 walang TIN parang imposible naman yun…at kung bilyones ang UNREMITTED tax …e di ang LAKI LAKIng BILYONES ang gross….di po ba ?  COA explan these to the  public….

    if there was a leakage, then obviously someone is trying to do a demolition job. the Binays may already have an idea by now who is behind it. whoever it is, im sure they’re not going to just let this go. they are going to seek revenge for sure. expect some exposes from them soon

    • jeffrey_01

      they’ll come out mudslinging

    Filipino People need to be informed on what is going on the case.

    This is the reason why the FOI bill is being hampered. They are still looking for ways to go around to. Rather than the vice president issue statement like this if there is really no problem with the dealing then I suggest that he just answered it straight face. I would not be surprise if there are other issue would arise, how long has the Binay’s been on hold of the whole makati. It’s like they own the whole city as if it is their own ranch.

  • wakats

    The government of Makati has been very generous to the binay clan since the maligno was appointed OIC-Mayor by Cory after the Edsa 1 in the latter part of February 1986.

    The clan should at least repay Makati by welcoming any investigation of their official actuations and disprove the suspicion of many that they bled the city “white” during their 26-year exclusive and continuous reign of the premier city made progressive by the Zobel-Ayalas, etc.
