ABS-CBN should remain shut down despite dismissal - OSG Calida




The “consuelo de bobo” has been given but the right to broadcast is off the table.

In a statement released by the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG), they have yet to receive a copy of the Supreme Court decision and will decide its options if they receive the same.

"The OSG has not yet received a copy of the SC decision. Once a copy of the decision has been obtained, the OSG will study the possibility of filing a motion for reconsideration, if necessary, given the constitutional issue on foreign ownership raised in the OSG petition," it pointed out.
Calida notes that the Lopez controlled corporation must remain off the air since the cease and desist order of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) remains valid because of an expired franchise.
"It must be noted that in its Cease and Desist Order (CDO) issued on May 5, 2020, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) directed ABS-CBN to stop operating its television and radio broadcasting stations nationwide absent a valid Congressional Franchise required by law,” he said

Early this week the High Court dismissed the Quo Warranto petition filed by the OSG for bring moot and academic after the justices voted unanimously because of the fact that the network’s franchise to operate has already expired.
