‘Yes, law is law, but under the law, we’re innocent until proven guilty’ - ABS-CBN CEO Katigbak

‘Yes, law is law, but under the law, we’re innocent until proven guilty’ - ABS-CBN CEO Katigbak

The Lopez controlled ABS-CBN Corporation bid for a new legislative franchise is under way.

The House of Representatives conducted its joint panel hearing and one of its guest is the current Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Carlo Katigbak.

Katigbak categorically denied the accusations in social media that the giant tv station is mustering public sympathy and insists that the law was on their side.

Sinasabi po ng mga bumabatikos sa amin, the law is the law and we agree, the law is the law and under the law we are innocent unless proven guilty,” Katigbak said during his opening remarks at the inquiry held by the House committees on legislative franchises and on good government and public accountability.

“Up to now there is no court that has determined we have broken any laws,” he said.
“Sabi po ng BIR, bayad ang aming buwis. And Department of Justice ang nagsabi na hindi labag sa prangkisa ang KBO (pay per view channel). Ang DOLE naman ay nagsabi na sumunod kami sa lahat ng compliance orders nila. Wala po kaming nilabag na batas,” Katigbak said.

Katigbak also gave an update that the family of the 11,000 employees was suffering while the tv station is shutdown.

“Ang pagmamahal sa pamilya ang pinakamahalaga. Sa mga nakalipas na linggo, nagdurusa ang pamilya ko. Natatakot sila sa kinabukasan at kinabukasan ng mga mahal sa buhay,” Katigbak said.
