Grace Poe wants to probe ABS-CBN ‘violations’ of franchise


Not to be outdone, Senator Grace Poe has filed a resolution seeking a legislative inquiry into the alleged violations of RA 7966 by ABS-CBN which are now pending Quo Warranto Proceedings before the Supreme Court.

In a resolution filed on Thursday, February 13, 2020, Poe wants to find out if ABS-CBN adhered to the terms and conditions of RA 7966, the law that granted its franchise on March 30, 1995.

On Monday, Solicitor General Jose Calida filed before the Supreme Court a Petition for Quo Warranto against ABS-CBN for alleged violations of its franchise and the Constitutional provision that television and other media organizations shall be solely Filipino-owned.
