MANILA, Philippines — Hailing the House committee that voted to kill the franchise application of ABS-CBN, Solicitor General Jose Calida on Saturday paraphrased the opening line of one of Frank

Calida pointed out that the franchise application was publicly discussed by House members, ABS-CBN’s executives and lawyers and resource persons from various government agencies such as the Department of Justice, Bureau of Immigration, Securities and Exchange Commission and Philippine Economic Zone Authority.

The solicitor general said the denial of ABS-CBN’s franchise does restrain freedom of expression or of the press “because the primordial effect of such denial is the upholding of the constitutional provision and laws governing media companies like ABS-CBN.”

He recalled that ABS-CBN’s violations first came to the public’s attention when he filed a petition for quo warranto on Feb. 10 in the Supreme Court to forfeit the legislative franchises of ABS-CBN Corp. and its subsidiary, ABS-CBN Convergence, Inc.The quo warranto suit accused ABS-CBN of broadcasting for a fee, which is beyond its franchise, and of abusing the privilege granted by the state when it launched and operated the pay-per-view KBO Channel on its TV Plus digital box without approval or permit from the government.

ABS-CBN also allegedly issued Philippine depositary receipts to foreigners, in violation of the foreign ownership restriction on mass media by the Constitution, according to the petition.The court later dismissed Calida’s petition after the franchise expired on May 4, but the House committee affirmed his allegations.

Calida also twitted ABS-CBN and its executives for what he described as adopting incongruous positions when they insisted that only Congress could withdraw a franchise.ADVERTISEMENTThe network said a legislative franchise was a “a political question that is beyond the purview of judicial review.”

But on Friday, the committee “answered this political question in a resounding and categorical fashion: ABS-CBN is not entitled to a renewed legislative franchise,” Calida said.“Congress has done its job well. … Justice has been served,” he said. Read more: Inquirer »

Pwe. May katapusan din ang katapusan mo. Pag dumating ang araw na yan, kami naman ang sabay sabay na kakanta para sayo ng 'And now, the end has come.' Para namang hindi niya alam beforehand ang resulta. An end is only the beginning of something even greater for ABSCBN while tomorrow isn't promised for these reptoids.

Ang aga-aga mukhang nakakasuka aking nakita. Pinapauso mo yan Caida baka ma 'end is near' yung matandang may sakit sa Malacanang, tapos ang maligayang araw mo.

Sana hindi mga anak at apo niyo ang parusahan dahil sa pinaggagawa niyo. 2 yrs na lng kayo while ABSCbn is a Kapamilya Forever!!! Calida is the ultimate example that “evil can ooze out from an ugly face.”

Smile! Karma is digital👹 I cant see any gain for government in abscbn closure. It is just an fed ego of dutertae. But with 11k losing job? You are a devil to celebrate that! May araw ka Rin pagong!!!! Your day will come from another song. kapal The Face of an Evil, good to know he looks that way.. Lecheng rule of law nyo! Pag kakampi nyo walang kulong! Si imelda nakawala pa rin! Si sinas nagpapataba pa rin. Me hangganan ang posisyon nyo mga hangal.

i would pay anything for a Mangkukulam. if anyone knows one pls. dm me Well you see, the rule of law is still upheld when you approve the franchise provided applied penalties are complied. (Kung totoong may natitira pang violation na hindi nai-ayos) It’s difficult to understand why you chose otherwise.
