Sandiganbayan presiding justice asked to inhibit from Mrs. Binay's cases

MANILA — Former Makati City Mayor Elenita Binay has asked Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Amparo Cabotaje-Tang to inhibit herself from handling the cases of graft and malversation of public funds filed against her.
In the motion for inhibition filed before the Sandiganbayan Third Division, Mrs. Binay said that she did not believe that Cabotaje-Tang would be fair in handling her cases.
Mrs. Binay argued that the comments of the magistrate about their motion for re-raffle of her cases show her "bias".
The former mayor said that the inhibition of Cabotaje-Tang could help to assuage her fears that she would not get fair treatment from the anti-graft court.
The hearings at the Sandiganbayan on the cases of Mrs. Binay were temporarily suspended until her motion is resolved. (PNA)
