The camp of Vice President Jejomar Binay threw dirt back at former Makati Vice Mayor Ernesto Mercado, saying he was the real owner of the condominium unit at the Peak Tower in Makati City, which he presented evidence at a Senate hearing.
“On contrary, what we know is Ernesto Mercado is the real owner of the Peak Tower condo unit,” Binay’s spokesman, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla, said.
Reports said a certain Ariel Olivar would testify on Tuesday’s continuation of the Senate hearing on the Makati car park building.
Olivar claimed that he was used as dummy for a 105-square meter unit at The Peak Tower, which supposedly belongs to the Vice President.
“Dito dating nakatira ang live-in partner n’yang si Racquel Ambrosio, na anak ng yumaong comedian na si Babalu. Dito rin nangyari ang shooting incident where Mercado was considered by police as prime suspect,” Remulla added.
“Malinaw na ang agenda ni Mercado ay lokohin ang taumbayan at pagtakpan ang kanyang pagmamay-ari ng maraming properties,” the spokesman added.
