In defense of his Friend!: ACT-CIS Rep Eric Yap leads investigation against ABS-CBN's alleged franchise violations




ACT-CIS party-list Rep. Eric Yap in an exclusive interview with the ANC’s “Headstart” reveals that he has a personal reason for his active participation in the ABS-CBN investigation for the alleged violations committed by the Lopez controlled corporation.


One such incident concerns his friend presidential son Paolo Duterte who is the current representative of Davao city representative.

Yap recalled when former Bureau of Customs broker Mark Taguba linked Duterte to the “Davao Group” allegedly involved in smuggling.

Taguba eventually cleared the presidential son of any wrongdoing, explaining the news linking Paolo Duterte to any smuggling activity  or its alleged ties with a certain “Davao Group” was only hearsay.

Yap claims the Lopez controlled media conglomerate did not followed up on Taguba’s claims in clearing the name of the presidential son.

“May kaibigan ako na na-allege na drug lord siya sa hearing, nilabas ng ABS-CBN News. Sabihin ko na ang pangalan, si Paolo Duterte. Sinabi raw drug lord. And then yung tao sa hearing, yung Mark Taguba, sinabi niya na hindi niya raw na-meet si Paolo Duterte, wala nang bumawi doon, wala nang nagsabi sa news na hindi pala siya kasama dito,” he said.


The solon claims the absence of any report clearing Paolo Duterte’s in any illegal smuggling activities leaves to a conclusion that indeed he is involved in doing so,

“So ang nangyari ang naiwan sa utak ng tao na ‘Ah, ito drug lord ito.’ Pero ang totoo, kumbaga hindi naman siya kilala ng tao,” he said.

A few days back Yap, Paolo Duterte together with Cavite Rep. Abraham Tolentino, filed House Resolution 853 to investigate the Lopez controlled ABS-CBN corporation over alleged violations of its legislative franchise.
