Supreme Court to tackle ABS-CBN’s petition against NTC’s cease and desist order on May 19, 2020

The avid viewers and supporters of ABS-CBN have high hopes that the decision of the Supreme Court will be in favor of the network

Supreme Court Spokesperson Brian Keith Hosaka has confirmed that that Supreme Court will discuss ABS-CBN’s petition to stop the implementation of the National Telecommunications Commission’s cease and desist order issued last Tuesday, May 5, 2020.

However, an unidentified source of the Supreme Court admitted that nobody has read the network’s petition yet, to give time for others to read.

SC source: “Nobody has read the petition yet. To give time to ponente and others to read the petition.”

This was publicly announced by lawyer and reporter in ABS-CBN, Mike Navallo.

In another post, Mike reiterated that the court may still decide if there is a need for a special session to tackle the ABS-CBN petition against NTC, prior to May 19, 2020, if the enhanced community quarantine will be lifted by then.

Two days after NTC demand ABS-CBN to shut down, Congressman Alan Peter Cayetano blatantly blame Taal volcano eruption and pandemic COVID-19 disease for the delay and adjustments in the Congressional calendar which allegedly affected the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise.

Cayetano said: “While we were on track with some of our priority legislation – including the swift passage of the 2020 budget, the Malasakit Center Act, and the creation of the Department of Overseas Filipino Workers, the eruption of Taal Volcano in January necessitated adjustments in the Congressional calendar. As well as the outbreak of COVID-19.”

“But you, LORD, know all their plots to kill me. Do not forgive their crimes or blot out their sins from your sight. Let…
