MAKATI, Philippines — Atty. Chank Fraves, senatorial candidate Nancy Binay’s legal counsel revealed that the court has granted Nancy’s petition for a temporary protection order (TPO) against any kind of discussion, debates and any form of public appearances where she will make herself look dumb, whom she accused of being a “waste of time and brain function”.
The TPO is said to be good for 30 days, way past the election period, but Nancy’s legal counsel made a petition to make the protection order permanent so as to avoid other instances of embarrassing herself if ever elected into office. The proceeding is rescheduled on April 28 to 30.
According to Fraves, the TPO granted by the Makati RTC yesterday prohibits Binay from coming within 100 meters to any form of event or gathering, where a candidate must prove their worth to the electorate, any organized scenario where Nancy is susceptible to mudslinging and or subjected to embarrassment that may cause emotional toil on the petitioner and possible health risks.
The request came after the camp of Nancy Binay tried to rehearse a mock debate with one of her personal assistants in an undisclosed location, to see if their bet was indeed incapable of participating in a debate.
The chosen personal assistant to face her was none other than her own 8-year-old son, Julius Benedict Binay Angeles.
In the words of one insider privy to the secret mock debate, “I’ve never seen a son dominate her mom the way Julius did.”
“First topic palang, tameme na agad si Ma’am Nancy eh (Nancy was already tongue tied even on just the first topic)!” said our source.
“She was standing there shaking, obviously petrified,” said another. “You can literally see sweat dripping from her forehead and all she could do was take a sip of water!”
Binay was apparently speechless and emotionless for a whole 27 minutes before demanding a “break” from the rehearsal.
“Her parents had to calm her down to get her composure back, to which it took them a whole 2 hours before bringing her back to a normal state.”
That was when her father, Vice President Jejomar Binay decided to go to the courts to ask her daughter to be barred from any debates.
“For health reasons,” said the older Binay, when asked for a comment. “Only handshakes and pasmile-smile nalang ulit for the meantime.”
As for the 3rd generation Binay, he quickly took to social networking site Facebook and posted a status update:
We are receiving rumors that Jack Enrile’s camp are also mulling filing a similar petition in the courts. Stay tuned.
