Jinggoy stands behind Loren in New York property issue

Senate President Pro Tempore Jinggoy Ejercito Estrada expressed his full support to Sen. Loren Legarda, who has recently been criticized for allegedly failing to declare her posh apartment unit in New York City as part of her asset.

"I stand behind Sen. Legarda as she is known for her integrity and honesty," Jinggoy said.

The senator said he had worked with Legarda since 2007, "and all the glittering possessions that I had seen from her are her firm principles on social justice, human rights, peace, and cultural diversity."

"The other valuable properties that I had seen from Sen. Legarda are her fierce commitment to issues on the environment, education, and employment," he said.

The senator said these are the same assets that millions of voters had seen from Legarda, making her the number one senatorial candidate in the past elections.

"And her moral uprightness will continue to make her the top senatorial choice of the electorate," Jinggoy said.

Jinggoy expressed belief that the tirades against his fellow senator's luxury property in New York "are nothing but a yarn of lies to pull down Loren from the current senatorial standings."
