Vice President Jejomar Binay once again denied businessman Antonio Tiu was his dummy for a 350-hectare property in Rosario, Batangas.

“I think that guy is a billionaire and a Ten Most Outstanding Young Men awardee,” Binay said of Antonio Tiu.

Binay also blasted the Senate blue ribbon subcommittee for having low regard of Tiu.

The Vice President said he pitied Tiu, who continues to appear before the Senate panel despite him being treated unfairly and that the businessman’s loan applications were now being held by banks.

“He was told he would be given loans if he would turn around and admit he was a dummy,” Binay said.

He also took a dig at Senator Antonio Trillanes for calling Tiu a ‘dummy.’
