SolGen to ABS-CBN : 'End is Near'

SolGen to ABS-CBN : 'End is Near'




The Solicitor General of the Philippines attended the congressional inquiry and said as his parting words for ABS-CBN “the end is near.”

Also in the said hearing SolGen Jose Calida took the opportunity to getback at one of ABS-CBN’s prized talents Coco Martin for his emotional criticisms against the former.


Calida was very clear that his appearance in the said congressional hearing does not mean he can discuss his pending case against the Lopez controlled ABS-CBN before the Supreme Court , he cites the sub judice rule.

“I am not allowed to answer any questions involving matters pending before the Supreme Court,” Calida said.

But the SolGen outlined the ABS-CBN’s alleged violations of its old franchise just the same, one of which is the issuance of an investment instrument that supposedly went against the country’s foreign ownership restrictions in mass media.

SolGen likened the shut down of the Lopez controlled company to his previous actions to have Sen. Leila De Lima detained on drug charges, and remove Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno through a quo warranto petition, the same mode by which ABS-CBN is being asked to be off the air.


“We championed this fight for the rule of law in the likes of the Sereno and De Lima cases, both filed and won before the Supreme Court,” he told the hearing of bills seeking to grant ABS-CBN a new 25-year franchise.
“Bakit pa kami titigil ngayon? Responsibilidad naming ipagpatuloy ang labang ito, hindi para sa aming sarili, kundi para sa sambayanang Pilipino.”
(Why should we stop now? It's our responsibility to continue the fight, not for ourselves but for the Filipino people.)
Calida alleged that ABS-CBN “has been deceiving the Filipino people” for decades and “has committed too many violations which went unnoticed and unpunished.”
