MANILA - Malacanang called on Vice President Jejomar Binay to name businessman Delfin Lee’s protector.

Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda was asked in today’s briefing if the Palace shares the sentiments of Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas, who called for Binay to substantiate his allegations that someone powerful is protecting Lee.

“I suppose if there’s somebody who’s really backing Delfin Lee and we know that… I certainly know that this government is committed to prosecuting those involved in the housing scam… Let us know who this person is, baka puwede pang isama sa kaso.”
