VP Binay to Apologize to Jamias, Jinggoy Estrada Played Him in a Movie (Trailer Video)
Do you still remember Senior Superintendent Elmer Jamias? Of course, you do. He is the top ranking police official who said earlier that he was harassed and by VP Jejomar Binay during their confrontation in front of the Makati City Hall. Well, Jamias said that the vice president will apologize to him for this actions.
“Tinawagan po ako ng tagapamagitan ni VP [Jejomar] Binay, gusto daw makipag-usap sa akin ni VP Binay, kakausapin daw po ako at hihingi ng paumanhin,” Jamias was quoted as saying in an interview via Radyo Inquirer, adding that he has no personal bitterness against the vice president but will still file charges against him.
(An emissary of VP Binay called me, he said that he [the vice president] wants to talk to me and is willing to say sorry.)
On Monday night, tons of followers of the Binays rushed to the Makati City Hall to oppose the second suspension order of the Ombudsman to Makati Mayor Junjun Binay. On a video captured by GMA News, some Binay supporters were seen throwing monoblock chairs to the shielded policemen who were assigned in the area.
But while VP Binay did not confirm nor denied the alleged threatening of Jamias and his men, Mayor Junjun Binay stepped down from office the next morning. The next day, VP Binay led the launch of his political party United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) where he will be the official presidential candidate in the 2016 election.
On the same day, Jamias showed the media a copy of a commendation letter from VP Binay, who was then the chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) dated July 9, 1999. On the letter, Binay said that if the Philippines had more outstanding policemen, the country will be a peaceful place to live and work in.

But apparently, even local movie producers were amazed with the performance of Jamias. Jinggoy Estrada made a life story movie of him in 2000. Titled “Barako ng Maynila,” Jinggoy played the role of then Col. Elmer Jamias. In the said movie, Jamias was the head of Binondo police station. Below is the video of its movie trailer.
We at TN are neither affiliated with any political party not endorsing any presidentiable in 2016. Nevertheless, we will admire VP Binay if he will be man enough to apologize to Sr. Superintendent Elmer Jamias. However, we are not forgetting that he will run for president, and that he might be doing it only to promote his image.
