Trillanes bares ‘awkwardness’ with Nancy Binay after carpark probe
MANILA, Philippines — Nothing personal, so said Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, who admitted feeling the “awkwardness” now between him and Senator Nancy Binay.
It was Trillanes, who initiated a Senate investigation into the alleged overpriced Makati City Hall II involving members of Binay’s family.
Prior to the first hearing conducted by the Senate blue ribbon committee last Wednesday, Trillanes said he and Senator Binay were “very nice to each other.”
“I find Sen. Nancy as one of the nicest senators around,” he said in a television interview Thursday, a transcript of which was released to the media this Friday.
Though they still greet each other, Trillanes said, “You can feel the awkwardness in the air.”
“But I feel, we’ll get over this. This is not personal to me,” he said.
