Law Dean: Constitution is very clear franchise is not a question of freedom of speech

I can feel the sourness in this ANC host's face when she realized that the law might not actually be on her network's favor after all.

This interview started on a very high note.

She sounds very ecstatic, fishing for soundbites that could work in ABS-CBN's favor.

Her tone changed, her face turned sour after realizing that her network might not have that much of a legal remedy against Solicitor General Calida's quo warrants petition filed at the Supreme Court.

Knowing Calida, his moves are very calculated. He wouldn't have acted on this if he didn't have a solid case.

Here are some soundbites we've gathered from ANC's interview of College of Law Dean Sol Mawis from Lyceum of the Philippines.

There's a jurisprudence that allows the Solicitor General to initiate legal actions if he has good reasons to believe that he has a case. That's what the law provides.

When we talk about Franchise, it is not a question of Freedom of Speech. The constitution is very clear that franchise should be Congress-approved.


This paragraph alone should give the lawyers of ABS-CBN enough reason not to have any sleep tonight.

Good luck oligarchs!
