Rep. Rodante Marcoleta threatens to summon gov’t agencies if the ABS-CBN-TV5 deal remains ignored

Marcoleta suggested that the PCC should further scrutinize the partnership which could result in a “monopoly”

Three agencies will be summoned by the House of Representatives “in proper time” should they sleep on the issue surrounding the new deal between ABS-CBN and TV5, according to SAGIP Party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta.

In proper time, siguro ganun ang mangyayari,” Marcoleta said in a radio interview.

The agencies involved include the Philippine Competition Commission (PCC), National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

Marcoleta cited concerns about the new deal that could violate specific laws of the country.

The Iglesia Ni Cristo member was against ABS-CBN’s bid for franchise renewal.

Sa totoo lang, maliwanag na nagkasala sila, kaya sila nawala ng prangkisa,” Marcoleta said.

Kasi kung bigla na lang lumitaw yan at hindi man lang naabisuhan yung dapat abisuhan at hindi kumibo yung dapat kumibo, eh magiging kataka-taka naman kung bakit nangyari,” he explained.

Marcoleta suggested that the PCC should further scrutinize the partnership, which could result in a “monopoly.”

So far, the NTC has been “playing deaf” on the ABS-CBN-TV5 deal, said the solon.

He is also frustrated with the BIR for doing nothing after the House discovered the alleged tax obligations of ABS-CBN

“‘We will look into this allegation.’ Eh wala naman kaming nakita eh,” he said.

Sana huwag na tayo mapunta sa ganun [na ipapatawag]. Ngayon pa lang sana tignan natin,” Marcoleta furthered.

Netizens think the hatred Marcoleta has for ABS-CBN is intriguing.

One netizen said that a monopoly would never happen, given that ABS-CBN doesn’t have a franchise.

Some think he is obsessed with the network but couldn’t figure out exactly why.
