Senator Nancy Binay on September 24 slammed former Senate president Juan Ponce Enrile’s claim that no one was arrested during Martial Law for political or religious reasons.
The Cagayan politiko made the false claim during his interview with former senator Bongbong Marcos.
Binay said her father, former vice president Jejomar Binay, was arrested during the Marcos regime.
Her father was a human rights lawyer then.
“Nakulong din ‘yung daddy ko. Nakulong din siya kaya habang ‘pinagbubuntis ako, dinadalaw ng mommy ko ‘yung daddy ko sa kulungan. Kaya nga sabi ko, nasa tiyan pa lang ako nasestress na ako,” Binay said.
“It’s a fact nakulong ‘yung ama ko. Lumaki ako na nagrarally kami. Tanda ko pa nga, every Christmas bumibisita kami sa political prisoners. Kinalakihan ko pa sila Senator Joker Arroyo, Senator Rene Saguisag. ‘Yun ‘yung nakikita ko habang lumalaki ako, magkakasama sila at nagdedefend ng human rights victims,” she added.
