Just my opinion by Raïssa Robles –
Jejomar Binay credits his good fortune to what my satirist hubby Alan refers to as the Vice-President’s “days of swine and roses.”
And Alan is right. Binay’s lawyer Princess Turgano recently explained that it was the Binay family’s piggery and flower businesses that enabled the couple to earn an additional net income of P44.35 million from 1994 to 2010.
But what I want to know is:
How was VP Binay – orphaned as a boy – able to buy two properties at the age of 22 and a third property at the age of 23 — while still studying law at the University of the Philippines College of Law?
