“Life imprisonment ang nangyari sa ABS-CBN” Cong. Defensor, sinagot si Karen Davila

Sa kanyang panayam kay ABS-CBN news anchor Karen Davila, sinagot ni Anakalusugan Party-list Rep. Mike Defensor ang patutsada na pinaytay daw ng kongreso ang Kapamilya network.

“This was not a death penalty. This is life imprisonment. ABS-CBN lives, the corporation lives. But as to the franchise, there were violations that were established, it’s very clear… ABS-CBN was not killed. They were given the life imprisonment and there is time to reform during life imprisonment. That is part of the rehabilitation of a prisoner when they’re put in jail,” banat ni Cong. Defensor.

Noong nakaraang linggo ay tinuldukan ng mababang kapulungan ng kongreso ang aplikasyon ng ABS-CBN para sa panibagong prangkisa. Sa botong 70-11 nanalo ang mga mambabatas na kontrang mabigyan ang Kapamilya network ng bagong prangkisa.

Ilang sa mga isyung naungkat sa nagdaang pagdinig sa kongreso ay ang hindi maayos na labor practices ng istasyon. Nasilip din ang tax avoidance scheme ng ABS-CBN kung saan nabisto na sobrang bababa na lang pala ang binabayarang buwis ng Kapamilya network.

“It is what it is — a denial of a privilege granted by the State because the applicant was seen as undeserving of the grant of a legislative franchise. By no means can this franchise application be related to press freedom. If it were so, then all applicants for legislative franchises covering mass media could simply claim such freedom and force the hand of this Committee each time… It is what it is — a denial of a privilege granted by the State because the applicant was seen as undeserving of the grant of a legislative franchise. By no means can this franchise application be related to press freedom. If it were so, then all applicants for legislative franchises covering mass media could simply claim such freedom and force the hand of this Committee each time… Such a scenario is totally inconsistent with the nature of legislative franchises as a mere privilege and never a matter of right. Wherefore, in view of the foregoing, the technical working group respectfully recommends the DENIAL of the franchise application of ABS CBN Corporation,” sabi sa report ng Technical Working Group’s (TWG) Committee ng Kongreso.
