Liberal Party slams NTC's act in shutting down ABS-CBN

The once all mighty Liberal Party (LP) made itself visible again after it had a massive beating in the last mid term elections, but this time it is lending its voice to support the Lopez-owned ABS-CBN.

The Liberal Party (LP) condemned the National Telecommunications Commission’s cease and desist order of ABS-CBN’s broadcast operations.

 LP said the fate that happened to ABS-CBN is a hindrance to the country’s efforts to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, put thousands of workers and their families at risk, and hindered the public’s access to reliable information.

“By ordering ABS-CBN to shut down its operations, the administration has hampered our collective capability to respond to the current public health crisis, upended the lives of thousands of workers and their families, and put at risk those of many others who rely on accurate, timely, and reliable information to navigate the age of COVID-19,” said the party in a statement released to media.

LP slams the Duterte government in shutting down the tv network while giving a partial resumption on the operations of the Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators that has been found out to owe the around P50 billion in unpaid taxes.

“They chose to do this despite a provisionary status that would have allowed ABS-CBN to continue their work. They chose to do this despite the many tasks that any reasonable administration would have prioritized. They even prioritized closing ABS-CBN while allowing POGOs to continue,” said the party.
