The Bi­nays will visit Hong Kong Dis­ney­land for a one-day trip on Novem­ber 16 be­fore the event takes place. They will be stay­ing at the Hong Kong Dis­ney­land Ho­tel be­fore mov­ing to the Gate­way Ho­tel, Marco Polo lo­cated at Tsim Sha Tsui from Novem­ber 17 to 19.

He has also been slapped with four graft and three fal­si­fi­ca­tion charges be­fore the Fifth Divi­sion due to his in­volve­ment with the pro­cure­ment of sev­eral items for the re­port­edly over­priced ₱1.3bil­lion Makati Sci­ence High School build­ing. (Cza­rina Nicole O. Ong)
