Makati City Rep. Mar-Len Abigail Binay said there was a conspiracy in the malversation charges filed against her before Office of the Ombudsman on Tuesday.

In a statement, Binay accused Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV of being behind the complaint filed by lawyer Renato Bondal.

Bondal has filed malversation of public funds against Binay over the alleged misuse of her Priority Development Assistance Fund by funneling it to “fake” nongovernment organizations.

Suspended Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay was also charged since Makati City was the implementing agency for his sister’s pork barrel funds.

The complaint against the Binay siblings came a week after Representative Binay exposed the “overpriced” consultants of Trillanes.

“Sinabi niya na maghahain sya nang kaso laban sa akin ngayong Martes. Eh bakit si Atty. Bondal ang nag-file? Hindi ba’t ito’y matibay na patunay ng kuntsabahan ng mga nag-aakusa at nandirinig ng mga akusasyon sa Senado laban sa aking tatay at pamilya na batay lamang sa hula at Powerpoint presentation?” she said.

Binay said she was no longer surprised of the charges filed against her, citing she had supporting documents to prove her PDAF was properly used.

“Dati ko nang sinabi na ang aking PDAF bago siya idineklara na unconstitutional ng Korte Suprema ay ginamit ko ayon sa proseso at hindi ghost projects. Suportado nang mga dokumento, mga litrato at akwal na beneficiaries. Masasabi kaya ito ni Senator Trillanes sa kanyang PDAF at mga consultants niya?” she said. Nestor Corrales/RC
