In his complaint, he accused Trillanes of defaming, maligning his reputation and causing his dishonor.

Binay cited in his complaint an article published in INQUIRER.net where the senator was quoted as saying that he will lead in exposing at a Senate committee hearing an alleged P100-million  “racket” in Makati about “ghost senior citizens” claiming benefits during the former vice president’s term as Mayor of Makati. /je
