A veteran journalist explained why the quo warranto petition filed by the Office of the Solicitor General against ABS-CBN is a surprising move that may be caught the television network giant off guard.
Jay Sonza claimed that while the executives of ABS-CBN are already prepared for other ways so they could still operate even after their franchise expires in March 2020, they didn’t expect to face a quo warranto petition from the government.
According to Sonza, one of the possible moves by ABS-CBN is to get a temporary license to operate to the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) so they could still operate while the congress is still not discussing their franchise renewal.
Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano also recently suggested to the House Franchise panel to submit to the NTC a document supporting the temporary license for ABS-CBN.
However, if the quo warranto petition granted, there’s a possibility that the Supreme Court orders ABS-CBN to close down even with the temporary license.
“Hindi b*** ang abs-cbn, lalo na ang mga Lopez
Alam nilang aabutan ng expiry ang kanilang prangkisa.
Alam nilang hindi lulusot ito sa Kongreso at sa pangulo.
Pero, hindi sila nababahala kung iyong lang ang problema.
Mas madaling ayusin ang NTC para sa kanilang provisional permit to operate. Malawak ang kanilang karanasan dito or so they thought. Sanay sa gapangan at patraydor na lakaran ang mga Lopez,” Sonza who’s a former journalist working for ABS-CBN said.
“Subalit, ngunit, dadapuwat iba ang Quo Warranto petition ng Office of the Solicitor General. At dito sila NAGULANTANG. dito nangatal ang kanilang mga labi, nanginig ang tuhod at umakyat ang b*y*g ni Gabby sa may lalamunan, sampu ng kanyang mga kapamilya.”
“First of its kind ito against them. Wala silang template kung paano ang gagawing diskarte o aayusin kahit pailalim.”
“Ang mga kalaban ay ubod ng bigat. Hindi pa natatalo kahit minsan, at nitong huli, mismong Chief Justice ang pinatanggal sa puwesto sa pamamagitan ng makapanindig balahibong QUO WARRANTO.”
Sonza said that if the Supreme Court favors the quo warranto petition, the ABS-CBN could face more problems aside from being forced to close down.
“They will be facing mounting law suits for fiscal recoveries, multiple estafa cases which are non-bailable. Underground financial gods and demigods are not gentle on those who they feel double crossed them,”
“Sa madaling salita, nasa bingit sila ng kumunoy! and they only have themselves to blame. Why? Because they chose to employ the mouth of hell, instead of singing Lullaby for Rody,”
