Statement of Secretary Martin Andanar on the resharing of content regarding the ABS-CBN shutdown in the PCOO Facebook Page

We would like to state that the resharing by the PCOO Facebook Page of a posted content by the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict Facebook Page regarding the legal situation of ABS-CBN Corporation’s broadcast license was done without the usual vetting process of our office.

That being said, the posted content is not in any way an official statement or an opinion of the PCOO. The issue regarding ABS-CBN Corporation’s network franchise remains within the purview of Congress.
