Trillanes now open to reconciling with ex-VP Binay: Mga kalaban ko lang namemersonal, ako hindi
After subjecting former Vice President Jejomar Binay to 25 public hearings exposing his alleged corruption, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Thursday (June 22) said, he’s now willing to move on and bury the hatchet.
“Wala namang problema. Sabi ko nga hindi ako na di- distract sa mga ganun. I don’t want to spend negative energy on those things. Sa akin hindi naman ako name-mersonal. Yung mga kalaban ko sa politika name-mersonal, pero ako hindi eh,” Trillanes said.
The senator, who exposed alleged involvement of Binay in the overpricing of the P2.3-billion billion Makati City Hall Building II, said he has heard about the former vice president has been into bible study lately.
While there had been talks that Binay has been trying to reach out to his political foes, Trillanes said he has yet to hear from the former vice president.
“Baka ako’y nasa huli ng listahan (ng tatawagan nya),” he said in jest to reporters in a news forum at the Senate.
Trillanes said he was willing to try to make peace with Binay, he said he was not about to join Binay in a Bible study.
“Baka way ahead na sya sa akin in that regard,” he commented.
Binay, who is facing charges before the Sandiganbayan over the alleged overpriced Makati City Hall building, has been allowed by the anti-graft court to join a pilgrimage in Israel to be led by his friend, Salesian priest.
