Presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s camp urged Vice President Jejomar Binay to answer the Filipino people “how he and his family were able to accumulate such a scandalous wealth,” Duterte’s spokesperson said in a statement.
“Based on the COA report and recommendation, we can say that the Vice President is lying between his teeth, insulting the intelligence of the Filipino people. Now is the perfect time for him to bare all and tell the Filipinos how he and his family were able to accumulate such a scandalous wealth,” Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted him as saying.
“By all means, he should do it now,”.
Lavina added that corrupt leaders were the ones making Filipinos lives miserable.
Duterte spokesperson,Peter Tiu Laviña said Binay still had less than two months to clear his name and explain his side on alleged “corruption spree” before the national elections.
“With the COA report saying Binay is liable for graft and corruption, the vice president is morally bound to bare all,” he said.
“As a people tired of lies and corruption, we should not allow ourselves to be taken into this kind of ride that will in the end, bring us to a tragic end. We have had enough of corruption that has brought poverty into the people — the time is calling for us to change,” Laviña added.
