Repost: SolGen Calida Hits Back at Celebrities Who Bashed Him on Shutdown of ABS-CBN

Solicitor General Jose Calida on Monday lashed out at celebrities who were critical of him and his role in the shutdown of the broadcast operations of ABS-CBN.

Calida, who participated in the joint hearing of the House Committees on Legislative Franchises and on Good Government and Public Accountability via teleconferencing, slammed "stars and celebrities [who] have taken to social media to rail against what they perceive to be oppression on the part of the government."

"In desperation, they would want to use their influence over their multitudes of fans to muddle the issue and drum up support for their network," the solicitor general complained.

Calida specifically pointed to actor Coco Martin who mentioned him in his social media post defending ABS-CBN.

Martin supposedly said in his post: "Kapag ang pamilya ko kinanti, kahit sino ka pa, lalaban ako nang patayan sa'yo kahit patayin mo pa ako. Maraming salamat Solicitor General Joe Calida at sa bumubuo ng NTC sa kontribusyon ninyo sa ating bayan! Tinatarantado ninyo ang mga Pilipino!"

Calida said Martin appeared to be spoiling for a fight, and that the latter felt that he could solve the issues of ABS-CBN the way he solves them in his teleseryes.

"However, we cannot discount the fact that in his rage, Coco Martin's outburst showed a clear lack of understanding of the situation. The sarcasm is clear: 'Ipagdarasal ko na lumiwanag sana ang inyong isipin at kung sino man ang nag-utos sayo,'" he said.

"If I had not been the Solicitor General, I would have called his bluff and make him eat his words," he added.

Calida in February filed a quo warranto petition to forfeit the legislative franchises of ABS-CBN Corporation and its subsidiary, ABS-CBN Convergence, Inc.

He alleged that ABS-CBN has been broadcasting for a fee and operating a "pay-per-view channel in ABS-CBN TV Plus, the KBO Channel, without prior approval or permit from the National Telecommunications Commission."

He also claimed that ABS-CBN has issued Philippine Depositary Receipts to foreigners, and that ABS-CBN Convergence, Inc. resorted to an "ingenious corporate layering scheme" to transfer its franchise "without the necessary Congressional approval."

In his speech during the joint hearing, Calida claimed that ABS-CBN had been "deceiving" the Filipino people for many decades, and it is now incumbent upon Congress to decide whether or not it would still grant a franchise to the network.

"The time has come to expose ABS-CBN, whose owners and corporate officers continue to deceive the Filipino people into believing that they are 'in the service of the Filipino people,'" he said.

"In truth, however, ABS-CBN is motivated not by service but by greed and desire for power and influence. Their brazen act must come to an end. The hour of reckoning may have been delayed but it has now come," he added.

The joint House panels began hearing the bills seeking to grant another 25-year franchise to ABS-CBN after the House leadership decided to drop the measure that would supposedly give the network a provisional franchise until October 31, 2020.

Cayetano, himself an author of the provisional franchise bill, has said the issue on the ABS-CBN franchise has already become "so divisive" and is taking up the time even as there are more pressing matters to discuss such as that of COVID-19 response measures.

He, however, vowed to have a fair and comprehensive hearing on the issue at the committee level.

Hearings on the matter would continue on Wednesday, June 3. — DVM, GMA News

  2. Sa totoo lang pinalala lang nila ang problema ng abs nung nag salita ang ibang artista nila esp kay coco. Pakiramdam ko hinde talaga nila alam ang totoo nangyayari sa network nila. Hinde nila alam ang totoo storya :(. Siempre bakit sasabihin ng abs ang totoo sa talent nila?

  3. ang issue na ito kailangan talakayin ng maigi sa kongreso. Walang saysay na magtatapang tapangan tayo on air para makakuha ng simpatya. Present your side and your evidence in the proper quorum.

    1. Yang mga alleged violations ng ABS-CBN ay sinagot na sa Senate hearing at sinasagot na rin sa House of Representatives. Sino ba ang nagdahilan na hindi sya dapat tanungin at pasagutin sa mga akusasyon nya laban sa ABS-CBN? Covered daw sya ng subjudice at parang may gag order sya para sumagot sa mga katanungan. Samantalang ang panig ng ABS-CBN ay dapat sumagot sa kanyang mga akusasyon. With due respect po, hindi ata patas ang laban.

    2. 12:57 For you info., sinagot ng ABS ang accusation sa kanila sa Senate which is not even the proper venue to air there side? Bakit ba kelangan nila magpaliwanag sa Senado? Bakit naman tayo nagpapaniwala sa mga Senador na yan? Let the truth come out in court.

    3. the proper way to answer the alleged violation ay sa congress at hindi sa senate dahil ang kongreso ang magbibigay sa kanila ng franchise at hindi ang senado.

  7. Hindi din ako sang-ayon sa pagpapasara sa ABS-CBN, pero bakit naman kasi yung mga celebrities nila ang pinapagsalita nila about sa issues. Mas okay kung yung mga abogado nila mag handle nyan because sila yung may mas alam sa batas and kung ano ba talaga reason why it was closed. Sila din yung makakapagbigay nang mas may saysay na kasagutan kesa sa mga artista dahil again, legal matter yan e. Imbes tuloy na yung simpatya ng tao na sakanila, naging katawa-tawa tuloy dahil kay Coco and lalo na si Kim Chiu jusko.

Sana napanood nyo kung paanong malinaw at walang paligoy-ligoy na pinabulaanan ni Hon. Rufus Rodriguez ang ilan sa mga alleged violations kuno ng ABD-CBN ayon kay Marcoleta.

  18. Coco is running true to form. He is defending his ABS CBN Home and Family. Understandable. Puede namang stick to the issue lang si Solgen Calida. Saludo ako kay ABS CBN CEO Katigbak kahapon. Katigbak spoke his truths in Tagalog calmly, clearly and professionally against allegations ni Cong Marcoleta and Solgen Calida. The facts are so clear that there could be no argument against them. Kung tapat ba sa kanilang tungkulin ang ABS CBN in the Service of the Filipino, CEO Katigbak said ipinauubaya nya sa sambayanang Pilipino ang paghusga. So humble and so direct, no hesitation in his reply against the masasakit na salita na nadinig nya from his accusers.

    1. sa milyon-milyong ordinaryong manggagawa na naapektuhan, wala naman akong nakitang nagwala ng tulad ni Coco, e siya naman di hamak na limpak limpak ang kinita sa serye nya at siguradong hindi magugutom ang pamilya sa 2-3 buwan lang. malas lang kung di nagpundar at nasanay na sa maluhong lifestyle. gaya nung bahay nyang mala-hotel/resort, malamang yun ang pinoproblema nya, ang high cost of maintenance nun. galing sya sa hirap kaya dapat yun ang inisip nya na wag masyadong magarbo sa luho. di naman kasi pang-habang buhay ang showbiz. sooner or later mawawala din ang kinang ng pangalan nya. I used to be a fan pero major turn off yung pagwawala nya,lumabas ang totoong ugali

  26. mga artista kasi sanay na sa lavish life. Since ngayon sa isa affected ngayon pandemic talaga MAg rereklamo talaga yan. Imagine tigil lahat. Kaya ang pagiging artista ay hinde pang habang buhay IM sure naman naka ipon na mga yan at may mga negosyo na ipundar dun muna sila mag Focus.

  27. Sana mag focus na lang si Coco sa pag hahanap ng ways to help dun sa mga talagang nangangailangan. Kung meron talaga syang heart for his family dapat gamitin nya influence nya sa totoong na aapi. Hayaan nya na ang mayayaman na pamununo ng ABS CBN ang mag resolve ng issues sa tamang venue.

    1. hindi kayabangan ang i-uphold ang batas iha. so kung expired na ang lisensya o prangkisa ng taxi na sasakyan mo okay lang ba sa yun? ok ba sayo magpacheck up sa isang doktor na hindi nagrenew ng lisensya nya sa PRC? bawal sa batas yun di ba. hirap sa inyo dati lagi nyo sinasabi maliliit lang ang kayang banggain ng gobyerno,ngayon iyak din kayo kasi napasara ang isang giant network. tapos sasabihin nyo pinersonal ni Digong, ang tanong bakit di nila napapaaprobahan yang franchise renewal nung time ni Pnoy na kaalyado ng Lopezes? kasi nga may mga hindi tayo alam na violations pala nila sa batas. sabi nga dura led sed lex = the law is harsh but it but it is the law. sa korte nila magkakaalaman kung ano ang dapat na desisyon dyan.

  31. Ginawa nilang mga spokesperson ang mga artista nila para makakuha ng simpatya. Kung tutuusin dapat ang mga lawyers nila ang maghandle niyan at magsalita on behalf of the company hindi yung mga artista nila na hindi naman alam kung ano ang mga pinag ugatan ng pagpapasara sa network nila.
