Trillanes inspects another alleged ‘overpriced’ Binay building–Makati Science High School
MANILA, Philippines — The senate blue ribbon subcommittee on Saturday conducted an ocular inspection of the Makati Science High School allegedly overpriced and built during the stint of Vice President Jejomar Binay as city mayor.
Senators Antonio Trillanes IV and Aquilino Pimentel III led the inspection of the 10-story high school building after lawyer Renato Bondal revealed in a Senate hearing that it was overpriced by P800 million or 300 percent.
Trillanes led the ocular inspection of the allegedly overpriced Makati City Parking Building and the “Hacienda Binay” in Rosario, Batangas, which Binay allegedly acquired through dummy corporations.
Binay has repeatedly declined the invitation to attend the investigation and answer the corruption allegations against him.
Instead, Binay challenged Trillanes to a public debate but the Vice President backed out.
