First they questioned the committee’s jurisdiction. That didn’t work. So now they want all incriminating evidence presented by former Makati Vice Mayor Mercadostricken off the record.
Binay spokesman JV Bautista said Mercado lied about being hospitalized so everything Mercado said including all the documents he gathered from government offices are also lies.
“When a witness wilfully lies on one matter of his testimony, then all the rest of his testimony will be considered to be falsehood.”
And so the great JV Bautista wants us to believe that the aerial shots of the Binay Hacienda, the land titles under the name of Binay’s close associates, the official correspondence coming from Makati City officials cannot stand on their own merits.
I guess if you believe JV Bautista then you will also take his word that a taste test is the only way to tell whether a brown tube floating in a swimming pool is a Tootsie Roll or shit.
