‘Libo-libo mawawalan ng trabaho:’ Diokno calls out NTC to rescind order

The same with his political allies, he is against the ABS-CBN shut down.

Former otso derecho senatorial candidate and human rights lawyer has condemned and calls the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to take back its cease and desist order against ABS-CBN media giant.

Chel Diokno who is also human rights lawyer said the shutdown of the tv giant results to a loss of jobs of thousands of workers as well as deprive other Filipinos of another source of information amid the country’s battle against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 pandemic.

“Sa gitna ng krisis, pinapasara ng gobyerno ang ABS-CBN. Libo-libo ang mawawalan ng trabaho. Milyon-milyong Pilipino na sa ABS umaasa para sa napapanahong impormasyon ang mapapahamak,” he tweeted.

“We call on the NTC to rescind its order. Let us #DefendPressFreedom. #NoToABSCBNShutDown,” he added.

Liberal Party also condemns the ABS-CBN shutdown

The once mighty Liberal Party made itself known in public 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.

“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.
