The property will easily fetch a price between P38 million to P40 million.
Drilon's stepdaughter Eduarda is merely in her 20s or she may be already in her early thirties, at the oldest. But it is odd how she was able to get her hands on about P40 million or more unless the alleged skim of Drilon from the Iloilo International Airport Project that is the baby of Drilon since the time of deposed Pres. Joseph Estrada (of No. 1 Polk St., Drilon's neighbor in North Greenhills) helped Eduarda get that money. (Why more than P40 million? Because of real estate taxes, dummy.)
If it is true that Eduarda does not own the Greenhills mansion, the house certainly was meant not to be included in the real estate properties associated or identified with Drilon, the sitting Senate President. The last that was heard of Eduarda is that she is hardly even employed. So how did she get P40 million or more? That is the one million dollar question.
It is definitely not included in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN) that reflects only a total net worth of a figure of only around P20 million and does include a mansion in Greenhills. If indeed Drilon is the one who owns this mansion, poor Eduarda that her stepfather had to drag her and her father's own name into this imbroglio and how heartless of Drilon.
Look now at this man: He has been saying that the truth ought to come out. That the Filipino people want the truth. If that is the case, why should something like this be hidden from the people?
