MANILA, Philippines — ABS-CBN was not forced to shut down, but it voluntarily went off-the-air last May 4, a lawmaker said on Monday, despite a cease and desist order issued by the National

During the hearing,NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Cordobaexplained that the agency was only adhering to its mandate when it ordered the closure of the network.“Trabaho lang ang aming isinagawa alinsunod sa mandato ng aming ahensya na naaayon sa batas (We were just doing our job based on our agency’s mandate and the law),” Cordoba said.

“Walang bahid o intention na makasakit ng damdamin o di kaya’y mag-abuso sa kahit kanino man. Sana po sa aming pagpapatuad ng aming trabaho ay wag mabigyan ng kung anumang kulay o interpretation na ito ay may masamang hangarin,” he added.ADVERTISEMENT

(We did not intend to hurt or abuse anyone. I hope that in carrying out our duties, the same would not be interpreted as being ill-motivated.)Marcoleta also denied that he was influenced by someone or any group in opposing the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN. He explained that he was only inspired by Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano’s appeal to reveal the truth.

“This is a very serious inference. Wala pong kumpas, si Speaker Alan Cayetano, hindi kumpas, sa ningas ng kanyang mga pakiusap, na kinakailangan na lumabas ang totoo para sa kapakanan ng bayan,” he said.“Ningas ni Speaker Cayetano ang pinanindigan ko at lakas ng loob ko para isawalat ang nalalaman ko dito,” the lawmaker added.

bobo Are you aware that when it was ordered by NTC, you can’t continue the operations because it is the regulatory body and it is a direct violations of the law? They can contest and ask for suspension of NTC decree but they cannot operate until such time that they secure the document A franchise is a privilege, not a right. Sarap pala talaga sa ABS, pati Congress nginig.

Tanginaaaaa No where to go kay Cong!!! Ampota san tayo papunta. Sumunod ka o hindi they will use against you. Malabo pa sa sabaw ng pusit si Cong.🗣🗣🗣 Gago!!! bayaran ng culto kung si Sinas nga kitang-kitang lumabag s batas di nio kinasuhan ipinagtanggol p pero ang ABS CBN sumunod s batas sila p ang may kasalanan...kawawang Pilipinas kung ganito ang mga namumuno wala tayong aasahang pagbabago same same people...

If you've already been taken for a fool, might as well make the most of the opportunity to be one through and through. Tama na marcoleta maawa kna.. Nakkatanga kna tlga... D na maintindhan qng anu ba tlgang punto maliban s paggng tamad mk magbasa.. Nanghingi pa ng tulong eh sya tong madaming ipasagot s abs.. May gosshhh mag usap nga kau ni calida

Akoy natatawa sa iyong matanda ka..isa pang maling banat ha at kukutusan na kitang matanda ka..👺👺 abusuhin mo na ngayon. tingnan q lang kung manalo ka pa. hugas kamay pa. ulol. di kmi bobo

Sino b itong mama n ito? It was just to 'honor' the CDO...also to avoid any possible future problems that might be 'used against them' in their franchise renewal. They just did the right thing. Doon ka po sa Eagle Broadcasting. Napakainutil mo! ang sakit ng ulo ko ke makubeta Tanga lang talaga nakakainis sa kagaguhan

ang gusto yata nitong si wig man eh mag ala sinas wag sumunod sa batas 😂😂😂 Wala nang tama basta napag iinitan ka. Gaslighting. This headline is a joke... Hello Sir,san planeta po kayo galing? By implication, you are encouraging disrespect towards an order of a government agency, a conduct unbecoming of a lawmaker who is supposed to be the bastion of integrity.

eh ano na naman pinagsasabi ni macolecta? yong mga pinagbabato mong issue sa abs, e wala namang kinalaman sa prangkisa, at isa pa cease and desist order nga di ba?...peace Ano na Cease Operations? Whenever you are issued by any government body, you follow it. That's the rule. So when NTC sent this to ABS being a law abiding company they followed. Now a government official is questioning why? I really don't get your point. U are going in circles

Stupid. They acted on the order of NTC. Daming daldal ng letse Simple lang to. Dapat hindi nag off ang ABS CBN. Dapat lumaban ang ABSCBNNews. Then no choice ang gobyerno kundi pumunta sa supreme court. Pinatatagal niyo pa. IbalikAngABSCBN Nakita niyo nangyari sa Hong Kong at USA? Puedeng gawin iyan ng mga Pilipino. Gisingin niyo pa kami. Iyung gising na gising!

Jusmiyo, congressman to? tapos pag ginawa nila un, ano gagawin nyo? And since sinabi mo yan, perhaps ABS Can AGAIN start airing. earth pls heal us. Palusot talaga Another violation for sure na ibato niyo kung di sila nagcomply. 🤦 Ambobo nman ng congressman na ito from Iglesia ni Cristo... please tandaan at wag sya iboboto or partylist nya sa 2022.....

This is to whom your taxes go people!!! Kung sino man po ang bumoto dito kay marcoleta, hes a nincompoop! Bastos pa at mukang walang pinagaralan, nakakaloka.... di daw nya maintindihan ang dossier, at kung ano ano pa! I watched the live stream this morning, & by all that is holy, napaka galing ng mga taga congress!!! It doesnt take a genius to understand what everyone was saying, but they never fail to disappoint!

tapos kung di naman nagkusa amg abs cbn sasabihin nyo lumalabag sa batas. anu ba? Jusko saan utak nya we need people with brain cell in Congress pls. Indi lang pala mata neto yung malabo. Ah Tapos saka kakasuhan sakaling nag operate with a cease and desist ng NTC 🤮🤮🤮🤮 Isang napaka tanga nitong tongressman na to. Tama na pa pogi mo Lintik kang matanda ka. Dami mo ng na bolang tanga. Mag sama na kayo. Kakarmahin ka din

can somebody educate this congressman! ano palqa yung CDO ng inilabas ng NTC optional ganun? pag di sinunod issue uli sayo ganun? wag ganun mars! Common sense ni Lolo nawala 😡 Tapos pag nagmatigas ang ABS sasabihin nilang LAW IS LAW. Bullshit. 🤦 Ano kayang meaning ng cease and desist order sa kanya? Tapos pag hindi nag off air e-tatag niyo as law-breaker? Ano po 'to laro ng pinakatanga?🤦‍♀️

Jusko! Bakit parang kasalanan pa ng Abscbn na sumunod sila sa utos ng ahensya ng gobyerno? So kung nag resist sila ano ibabato sa kanila? Walang respeto sa batas at sa gobyerno? Hindi pa ba tayo quota sa kabobohan nito? IbalikAngABSCBN hindi nag uusap si Marcoleta at Calida.. mukhamg ang ending sila sila magkokontrahan sa hearing

Dumadami ang clown at panggulo sa Kongreso, this one’s one of them... 💩💩💩
