The former longtime aide of Vice President Jejomar Binay resumed his exposé on the family, accusing them of expensive taste and hobbies and hiding their wealth through dummy corporations. Former Makati City Vice Mayor Ernesto Mercado showed a Senate subcommittee photos of the 350-hectare farm in Rosario, Batangas, that the Vice President reportedly owns. The garden is supposedly patterned after London’s Kew Gardens, a special request of Mrs Elenita Binay. The property also has an air-conditioned piggery, a mansion with a resort-type pool, a showcase of Mrs Binay’s imported orchids, a horse ranch, a mansion with the Kew Gardens replica, a 40-car garage, man-made lagoons, an aviary, and a fighting cock farm. Binay said he no longer owns the farm. His son Mayor Junjun Binay also said he is preparing to ask the Supreme Court to stop the ongoing Senate probe, adding the investigation is merely meant to derail Binay’s presidential bid in 2016.
