Duterte bares Gabby Lopez tried to bribe him while Mayor to speed up Sky Cable's papers

Duterte claims Gabby Lopez offered him indirect bribe

President Rodrigo Duterte is claiming that Bilyonaryo Gabby Lopez personally offered him an incentive for helping speed up Sky Cable?s application to operate in Davao City.

In his speech during the oath-taking of new government appointees in Malacanang Monday, Duterte said he rejected Lopez?s subtle inducement and told him he wasn?t that kind of person.

?Gabby Lopez, you dealt with me. Remember, you entered Davao City sa cable? Hindi kitakilala, kinausap mo ako sa hotel,? said Duterte.

?Tanungin kita ngayon. Noong sinabi mo na, ?Magkano utang ko sa?yo?? Anong sinagot kosa iyo? Sabi ko, ?Hindi ako ganun?. Iniwanan ko kayo nakaupo diyan. Kayong apat kayo. Sabi ko, ?Sige?. Sabi ko, ?Saan ?yung application mo??. Ipinakita mo sa?kin,?Duterte said.

?Sabi niya (Lopez), ?Ito, isa-submit na namin. Clearance mo lang para? Kasi kaibigan mo raw ?yung mga may-ari?. Tangina,pinirmahan ko. Tangina. Tapos kungmagsalita kayo,? he added.

This is the latest rant of Duterte against Lopez and his media empire ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. Duterte has not yet moved on from what he claimed as ABS-CBN?s refusal to air his campaign video (in reply to Sen. Antonio Trillanes? anti-Duterte ad aired by the TV station) after paying for the air time.

?Tinanggap ninyo ang 2 million ko, taposhindi ninyo pinalabas ?yung? What?s the fucking! Sinong hindi magalit niyan? Mahina nga ako noon, hindi ko pa naman alamwhat?s the real score,? he said.

?Tanggapin ninyo mga pera namin. Ako, si(Senator) Alan (Cayetano), si Chiz(Escudero). You didn?t even bother to explain na hindi program namin ?yan. You offered to return the money through a receipt na gawa-gawa lang at isinauli ninyosa Davao,? he added.

ABS-CBN's 25-year franchise will expire next month, March 2020.
