MANILA - Vice President Jejomar Binay said he was "hurt" by the probe at the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee on the alleged overpriced office and parking building in Makati, claiming that it was purely political in nature.

"Magiging hipokrito ako kung sasabihin kong hindi, nalulungkot ako," said Binay, who said he watched parts of the hearing.

"Wala namang in aid of legislation dun eh, sinabi na rin nila na dahil ito sa pagtakbo ko sa 2016," added Binay.

Asked whether he would be attending the next hearings, Binay was non-committal, saying he was "busy.”

"Tignan natin, depende sa magiging takbo ng hearing," he said.
