Blue Ribbon Committee Hearing live stream, Makati Parking Building, VP Binay’s 350 hectare farm to unveil


The Blue Ribbon sub-committee hearing continues in connection with the alleged overprice of the Makati Parking Building II on Wednesday, October 8, at 10:00 AM.

Expected to be tackled first would be the jurisdictional challenge placed by the VP camp. While Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III , head of the sub-committee, wanted the whole committee to decide on the matter, Sen. Teofisto Guingona III, head of the Blue Ribbon Committee, threw it back to the sub-committee to decide on the challenge. Who are the senators to appear to vote on the jurisdictional challenge?

As the probe of Makati City Parking Building evolves in the media, the approval rating of VP Binay drops 15 points in the recent Pulse Asia survey. According to False Asia, Binay’s drop in the rating was caused primarily by the senate panel investigation on the corruption on Makati City while Binay was the Mayor.

Also, in Wednesday’s Blue Ribbon sub-committee hearing, the 350-hectare farm of the Vice President would be revealed by former Makati Vice Mayor Ernesto Mercado. The real estate, with piggery, flower orchard, cock farm, is located in Barangay Maligaya, Rosario, in Batangas province. According to report, it is currently owned by a corporation whose shareholders are dummies of the Vice President.

Moreover, the three senators doing the questioning will be taking care of the subpoenas issued to Mayor Erwin Binay and to the Makati City officials, who were reluctant to join in the previous hearings.
