Suspended Makati Mayor Junjun Binay showed a video to prove his supporters did not start Tuesday's scuffle outside city hall.

"If we complete the narrative na tinulak-tulak ng pulis, eh sino ngayon nag-instigate ng gulo? Hindi nanggaling sa party namin," said Binay.

The Philippine National Police has already formed a special task force to investigate the confrontation.

But Binay said he does not believe the PNP will be fair in its probe.

"Sabi nila there will be an investigation. We would like to submit ourselves to an investigation. Problema lang, papano kung PNP ang magko-conduct? I don't think we can get a fair investigation," doubts the suspended mayor.

Binay also denied his supporters prevented the DILG from serving the Ombudsman's suspension order.

"Pumunta yung representative ng DILG. Sabi namin, sasamahan namin kayo para walang gulo. Nung tinatawagan sila nung umaga wala nang sumasagot," he said.

He added, "Makikita nyo naman doon sa buong video na tinutulungan pa sila nung mga tao, kasi may nagagalit naturally pero makikita nyo may pina-pacify din sila."

Police said they exercised restraint during the standoff. Binay's camp said their supporters did the same.

The matter will now go to court as both sides are eyeing charges against each other.
