Lawmakers threaten graft case vs NTC's Cordoba for allowing ABS-CBN TVPlus to continueWATCH: Ranking congressmen threatened to file a graft and corruption case against NTC Commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba for allowing embattled network ABS-CBN to continue airing some of its shows through its digital box TVPlus. Read: your day will come Remulla...wait for it...God will deliver it to you personally. Puro nalang pananakot at intimidation ang ginagawa ng mga kaalyafo ng gobyerno... kahit saan ka lumingon malinaw na puro pansiling interes lamang ang kanilang adhikain. pareho kayong lawyers, pero ang pagdinig ay para sa kaalaman ng taumbayan.
