Vice President Binay wants to attend the Senate hearing on Thursday

This should be good

The Philippine Star reported on Tuesday that Vice President Jejomar Binay intends to attend the Senate hearing on Thursday.


"Kagabi, sabi niya, pabayaan niyo na akong pumunta," said Navotas Representative Toby Tiangco. During his appearance in ANC’s Headstart, Tiangco said that they (Binay’s allies) are still trying to convince him not to attend the hearings or even the debate with Senator Antonio "Sonny" Trillanes IV.


According to the report, the sub-committee handling the hearing formally sent the invitation to the Binay camp last week with an assurance that they will "extend courtesies befitting the Office of the Vice President."


Tiangco maintains the stance that the Vice President will not gain anything from attending the hearing and the debate, but said, "Kung hindi namin makukumbinsi hanggang bukas nang gabi, then, anong magagawa namin?"
