Teddy Boy Locsin Jr. attests to legality of Lopez reacquisition of ABS-CBN

He clarified that it was returned by the restored democracy, without any help from President Cory Aquino, the successor of the Marcos’ presidency.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddy Boy” Locsin Jr., attested to the legality of the Lopez’s reacquisition of ABS-CBN after Martial Law.

In his tweets, Locsin said that return of ownership to the Lopezes from the Marcoses is legal and fully-documented.

Locsin also said that he was there when ABS-CBN was stolen from the Lopezes and also when it was returned to the Lopezes.

He clarified that it was returned by the restored democracy, without any help from President Cory Aquino, the successor of the Marcos presidency.

The DFA Secretary also reacted to the statement of Rep. Elpidio Barzaga Jr. who said that ABS-CBN violated the equal protection clause of the constitution.

Locsin said that ABS-CBN has a clear and fully documented case, unlike those other victims who were lost and nowhere to be found.

He also said that if ABS-CBN legally lost ownership, Geny Lopez wouldn’t have been jailed and “executed”.

It can be remembered that Marcos used Geny Lopez to coerce Eugenio Lopez Sr. to relinquish the ownership of ABS-CBN to him.

President Rodrigo Duterte designated Locsin as the Philippines’ Permanent Representative to the United Nations in 2017.


Locsin has been active in sharing his views and opinions on social media. He was also been criticized by netizens due to his controversial tweets. He is a lawyer, a politician, and a former journalist.
