Sen. Nancy Binay defends her brother Junjun, says they already forgot about Dasmariñas Village incident
She also accuses the Philippine Daily Inquirer of being biased.
Earlier this week, Makati Mayor Junjun Binay’s November 30 run-in with three security guards at Dasmariñas Village became the talk of the town. The incident was featured in a Philippine Daily Inquirer story written by Nancy C. Carvajal. As the issue heated up, Senator Nancy Binay, a resident of Dasmariñas Village, issued a statement which essentially dismisses the incident. Her brother Junjun’s convoy had come from her house on the night of the said run-in with security personnel. We are reposting Nancy Binay’s statement below:
"It is really heartwarming to know that there are people who are not swayed by the malicious story in the Inquirer and spiteful posts in social media.
It is apparent that there are people bent on putting the name of my family in bad light. The so-called Dasmarinas incident happened three weeks ago and we have forgotten about it. What was reported in the Inquirer had glaring biases and bends. The video does not capture what really happened. No amount of explanation would satisfy those who have never-ending dislike for our family.
All parties have already explained their sides and have resolved the matter civilly long before the news landed above-the-fold in the Inquirer.
In the spirit of Christmas, I pray that we all work for peace and reconciliation instead of kindling hate. The issue has already been good-naturedly settled-all’s well that ends well. This is a season of giving and forgiving. Time to move on.
To paraphrase a fave line, ’This is my first and last official statement on the incident.’ Please understand if I can hardly take your calls at the moment. I hope you will allow me to have some private time with my kids and my family since Christmas is just a few days away. Maligayang Pasko!"
