Tiu hits Cayetano for kidnapping joke

Businessman Antonio Tiu criticized Senator Alan Peter Cayetano for making light of kidnapping incidents targeting Chinese-Filipinos like him.

“Senator Cayetano, tama po ba at makatao na gawin ninyong biro ang kidnapping? Tama po ba na sa kagustuhan ninyong ipahiya ako, ginawa ninyong katatawanan ang isyu ng kidnapping lalo na sa aming miyembro ng Chinese-Filipino community na araw-araw humaharap sa panganib na ito?” asked a teary-eyed Tiu in a press conference in Quezon City.

Tiu said he would have “quietly suffered the insults” from Cayetano in the Senate hearings if not for the Taguig lawmaker’s insistence that he open his bank accounts. He fears this would place him at serious risk of getting kidnapped.

“Ang sabi niya, hindi naman daw mapanganib ang gagawin kong ito dahil pwede naman daw akong makipagtawaran sa mga kidnappers kung sakaling kidnapin ako o sino mang miyembro ng aking pamilya,” said Tiu.

Tiu turned the tables on Cayetano, asking how the senator would feel if he and his family were made the subjects of a kidnapping joke.

“Di ka ba masaya na pinagbintangan mo ako nang walang basehan? Pinahiya mo ako ng paulit-ulit sa harapan ng taumbayan at ngayon gusto mo namang ipain ang buhay ko pati pamilya ko sa mga kidnapper?” he said.

Tiu is standing by his testimony that he is the true owner of Sunchamp Agri-Tourism Park, which took over the sprawling farm in Rosario, Batangas last year, and not Binay.

“I went to Senate inquiry as a resource person. But to my total dismay, I was accused of being a dummy, a money launderer, a tax evader and a dishonest businessman,” Tiu said.

Tiu said Cayetano and Senators Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III and Antonio Trillanes IV are acting as “complainant, prosecutor and judge” in the ongoing Senate Blue Ribbon probe on Vice President Jejomar Binay.

“I’m standing by the truth that I’m a buyer of the Rosario property in good faith,” Tiu said.

Tiu said he has met Binay only a few times. “I swear to God I only met the Vice President three timesin my life. If somebody can produce another proof that I’ve met him more than three times, I’m willing to accept any consequences,” Tiu had said in a previous interview with ANC previously.

“I met him when I brought the Chinese investors who wanted to partner with me. I asked permission to to see the President but he’s not available. So I brought them to the Vice President, that was the first. Second time I met him was in the VP Binay Golf Tournament . Third time I saw him in the farm with Dra. Binay. I haven’t bought the farm yet then,” said Tiu.
