President Duterte to block renewal of ABS-CBN franchise

“Yes, if you’re engaged in swindling," Duterte said.


President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said that he will block the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise. if they committed 'swindling.'

 “Yes, if you’re engaged in swindling," Duterte said.

The question was raised after Duterte approved the renewal of the ABS-CBN's rival TV network, GMA.

Earlier, Duterte claimed ABS-CBN it did not show his political ads during the 2016 campaign season though they were already paid for.

“[The franchise] has been there for 25 years. The law said it’s okay, only if you adhere to journalistic standards. What did you do to us? Estafa, swindling, not only me but Chiz Escudero, many of us. Son of a bitch, you collected outright then you commit estafa,” Duterte said.

“So I will file a complaint. Congress, no need to renew it. But to operate is something else, so I will point this out, your garbage, then we’ll see,” he added in an ambush interview right after he gave a joint press statement with Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, who was on a state visit.

House Bill 4349 seeking to renew the franchise granted to ABS-CBN for 25 years is still at the committee level. The franchise will expire in 2020.
