MANILA — On top of the corruption allegations raised against him, Vice President Jejomar Binay may face a murder complaint.
Binay revealed on Tuesday that his critics are planning to charge him with murder as part of what he described as a “demolition job” against his presidential bid.
“Meron pa nga po fa-file-an ako ng murder charge. Yan nga po ang gawain, demolition by perception,” he said in an interview with radio DZMM.
(There is also someone who is planing to file a murder charge against me. That’s what they do, demolition by perception.)
“Mga kababayan ‘yan pong demolition na ‘yun, alam po ng mga naninira sa akin noon pa man na sila ay nagsisinungaling. Alam po nila na hukuman lang ang makapagsasabi,” he added.
(My fellow Filipinos, in that demolition, my critics know from the very beginning that they are telling lies. They know that only the court can judge.)
Binay said that he is saddened by how his image has been eroded by the corruption issues thrown at him.
“Ang malungkot na parte sa akin, ‘yung sinasabing pagkakorupisyon e Binay ‘yun. Mga kababayan, ‘yan hong mga salitang ganyan, kayo ho ay naging bahagi ng biktima ng sinasabi naming demolition by perception,” he said.
(What saddens me is that when they say corruption, that’s Binay. My countrymen, those words, you were also a victim of what we describe as demolition by perception.)
