Former vice president Jejomar Binay Sr. was formally charged with graft, falsification of public documents and violations of procurement law over the allegedly rigged procurement for the construction of the P2.28-billion Makati Parking Building II.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor on Thursday filed charges of graft or violation of Section 3(e) of Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, falsification of public documents or violation of Article 171 of the Revised Penal Code, and violation of the Government Procurement Act or Republic Act 9184 against the former vice president, who lost his presidential bid in the recent May 9 elections.
Ombudsman prosecutors arrived at the docket section of the Sandiganbayan around 8 a.m. and delivered piles of documents. The cases are currently being numbered at the docket.
Binay Sr.’s son dismissed Makati mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay Jr. was earlier charged for graft and falsification of public documents.
The charges against the former vice president were filed when his term ended upon the expiration of his immunity from suit.
