Mga Kongresista kinakasa na ang Pagbawi sa mga Ari-arian ng ABS CBN "Yung titulo ang unahin natin. Para makuha natin agad iyon!"

During the online meeting of Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta (Sagip party-list), Deputy Majority Leader Jesus Remulla (Cavite) and Rep. Michael Defensor (Anakal Health party-list), they talked about the possible charges against ABS-CBN.

One of the things they discussed was to revoke the Kapamilya Network's property. It is also proposed that the station will be fine the amount of P1.97 trillion.

According to Congressman Marcoleta, the land where ABS-CBN headquarter is located in Mother Ignacia Street Quezon City does not belong to the Lopez Family.

Abs-cbn's reason for not showing the original land title is because it is in "reconstitution". But Congressman Marcoleta insisted that the title was only doctored and that is the reason why the station can't show it.

"Yung titulo ang unahin natin. Para makuha natin agad iyon. Kasi sa lupa, wala silang mabubuhat doon. Lahat ng chattels at improvements ay pag-aari na ng gobyerno. Sapagkat ang lupa ay sa gobyerno. Kapag tinake-over iyon madali silang makakapag-programa doon,” said Congressman Marcoleta.

This July, the congress rejected Abs-cbn's application for a new franchise. Some of the legislators' basis were the station's questionable labor practices. The congressmen also saw the Tax Avoidance Scheme of the Kapamilya network.

ABS-CBN Chairman Emeritus Eugenio Lopez III's dual citizenship was also raised at congressional hearings.

“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,” according to the Congressional Committee Resolution.
