Tito Sotto on alleged takeover plot of ABS-CBN property
Senate President Tito Sotto expressed his reaction to the ABS-CBN property takeover allegations.
Following the Congress’ decision not to allow the Kapamilya network to renew its franchise, more issues surfaced. Rep. LRay Villafuerte, one of the 70 congressmen who voted against the TVgiant, filed House Resolution (HR) No. 1044.
He wants the frequencies of ABS-CBN to used for distance learning and to disseminate important information amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, Kapamilya supporters criticized him.
Then, another issue surfaced. Allegedly, some lawmakers held a Zoom meeting where they plot their plan to take over the property of ABS-CBN.
Based on the report from Inquirer, House Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta, Deputy Majority Leader Jesus Crispin Remulla, and Anakalusugan Rep. Michael Defensor, also recommended that the TV giant should pay “P1.97 trillion in fines for alleged violations of its old franchise.”
In line with the alleged ABS-CBN property takeover plot, Senator Tito Sotto shared his view on his recent Twitter post. The lawmaker said that “private property is constitutionally protected”.
He added that there is a proper venue to discuss this matter and it is the court. Sotto also believes in the “due process”. The Senator also used the famous segment of Eat Bulaga “Bawal Judgmental”, the noontime show in which she is one of the pioneer hosts.
Several netizens also shared their opinions about this. Here are some comments.
“It’s easy to tweet, Mr. Senate President. But I’m confident if the takeover happens, ball-less politicians like you will be the first to tolerate the act. Bawal JUDGMENTAL indeed.” – Twitter user @juantamad2017
“Ay may due process ba? Sana applicable sa lahat no” – Twitter user @KioskWan
“Sen. Tito papaano na 42 sq.m. sa titulo pero 44,000 ang property nila” – Twitter user @edgarray97
