President Benigno Aquino III has insisted that Vice President Jejomar Binay’s camp is lying when they said that he offered the Vice President help regarding allegations of ill-gotten wealth.
The President made the statement during the annual Presidential Forum of the Foreign Correspondent Association of the Philippines in Pasig.
According to the President, it was VP Binay who sent him a text message, asking for help on the on-going investigation of the Department of Justice and the Senate Blue Ribbon sub-Committee.
PNOY claimed that Binay asked if he can talk to his allied Senators to stop probing the graft issues against the Vice President.
Though it’s clear that both camps have conflicting statements, the President said that he will continue his friendship with the Binays.
