Tax dues! Duterte exposes the link between PNoy, Kim Henares and the Prietos of Phil. Daily Inquirer

President Duterte continued his tirades against some media entities for twisting and misinterpreting his pronouncements.

Media entities, Philippine Daily Inquirer and ABS-CBN News in particular, earned Duterte's ire for blatantly reporting lies. While President Duterte acknowledges the media's role as the watchdog of the government, President Duterte says it's a different story if they resort into peddling plain lies.
Inquirer's owner, the Prieto family, owns stakes in multiple mining firms that were recently closed by the government due to scores of violations.

President Duterte also revealed how the Prietos managed to evade taxes amounting to P1.5 billion for their franchise of Dunkin' Donuts - all of which happened under BS Aquino's administration.

“Inquirer ang may-ari ng Dunkin’ Donuts. Alam mo ba ‘yan? At may utang ‘yan sila na taxes inayos ni Kim Henares. Walang ibinayad o nabayad nang konti lang,” Pres. Duterte revealed.

“Ang Inquirer may utang ‘yan na running to billion. ‎Iyan ang totoo na mga oligarchs na mga mayaman. Sila ‘yun, they control the airwaves. Sila ‘yung nagfi-feed ng balita na basura. Sila ‘yan,” he added.

In a report by Politiko, it was revealed that "The Bureau of Internal Revenue was charged three years ago with “intentional failure” to collect P1.56 billion in back taxes from Golden Donuts Inc. (GDI), the Prieto firm which holds the Dunkin’ Donuts franchise in the Philippines.

A former BIR official exposed discrepancies in Dunkin’ Donuts financial records in 2007 and 2008 where it undeclared its sales to cheat the government of taxes."
