“TV5 stands by the statement of Mr. Tulfo, but will conduct its own internal inquiry into the matter,” the network has released a statement regarding this issue.
Erwin Tulfo, a prized broadcaster of TV 5, was allegedly involved in a developing Priority Development Assistance Fund scam!
The network would now investigate the matter, despite standing with Tulfo’s denial to the matter.
According to a report from Philippine Daily Inquirer, Tulfo received a disguised payoffs of “advertising expenses”. The payoffs were said to be coursed through the state-owned National Agribusiness Corporation.
However, the broadcaster denied the involvement. Also, in a statement, the network vowed to look into this matter, and will be fair with their investigation.
