People behind media propaganda in the country carried out by giant commercial media continues to destroy Makati Mayor Abby Binay’s reputation by putting the overpricing blame on her that started from the father outgoing VicePresident Jejomar Binay to stop his chances to by the next President last May 9, 2016 national election. This worked during her brother’s term, Junjun Binay that resulted to his dismissal pending court letigations.
The truth is that – “the Commission Audit (COA) conducted 11 audits from 2008 to 2014 that found that there was no overpricing in the construction of the Makati City Hall Building 2 (a carpark), according to Vice President Jejomar Binay’s camp. “These COA reports, including one conducted by the agency’s own technical experts, were ignored in favor of a fast-tracked supposed special audit report that is tainted by political motives,” Tobias Tiangco, a winning congressman said.
Makati City resident auditor Cecilia Caga-anan even said in the February 2014 technical audit report that the construction of the edifice was reasonably priced. “Based on the result of the Contract Reviews conducted by COA-TAS [Technical Audit Specialist] as presented beforehand, the contract cost of Makati City [Hall] Building  was considered reasonable based on COA Resolution No. 91-52 dated September 17, 1991,” it quoted the report.“This project has passed 11 regular audits.
The Ombudsman being Pnoy’s appointee is really part of the conspiracy of demolition – as Conchita Carpio Morales vowed to file such cases only when V.P. Binay’s term ends contrary to some media reports that cases are already filed.
