MANILA, Philippines - Vice-President Jejomar Binay on Monday said he was shocked at a report allegedly undermining the efforts of Philippine government against human trafficking.

"Alam niyo, isa ako sa nagulat sa report na iyon. At kung sino man ang gumawa ng report na iyon eh, alam ninyo ang lumabas sa diyaryo. Hindi iyung mga magagandang nangyari," said Binay.

He said that contrary to the report, the Aquino administration is gaining headway against human trafficking,

He cited comparative results of convictions of 8 within 2 years, against 2 cases of conviction under the previous administration.

"We are already being considered as a model sa tamang paglaban dito sa problema ng human trafficking. May pagkukulang pa pero hindi naman ganoon kasama," said Binay.
