ABS-CBN’s Davao unit tried to reimburse Duterte for his unaired campaign ad

Apr 30, 2017 @ 8:45

President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. tried to settle his refund for an unaired political ad campaign last year and he has the check to prove it.

“I don’t know if it’s true but somebody posted in the Internet that I do not owe ABS anything because what they did with my money,” said Duterte in a press conference

“But they forgot that their Davao City station gave us a letter with a corresponding cheque and saying that it is a reimbursement because you have a demandable and it’s a… Cheke. Cheke,” he added.

Duterte has been taunting ABS-CBN in the last few weeks over its failure to run his campaign ad last year (which was supposed to be his answer to an anti-Duterte it ran and paid for by Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV) and failure to pay back his money. Duterte called ABS-CBN a “swindler” and guilty of “estafa.”

A report by Politiko claimed that there was no money to refund because ABS-CBN rejected his payment for the campaign ad – the media giant did not air the ad (which used footage of Duterte’s appearance in ABS-CBN’s presidential debate program) because Duterte’s campaign team refused to blur the faces of ABS-CBN big bosses Gaby Lopez and Charo Santos-Concio.

Who’s got the money? ABS-CBN never got payment from Duterte for campaign ad

A source from the Palace said that Duterte has the receipt to prove that ABS-CBN accepted payment for his ad and the check to prove that ABS-CBN to prove that it tried to reimburse him.

Duterte said he would elaborate on this long-running financial dispute with ABS-CBN in his next press conference. “Let me talk about it in the next, about this cheque I will give you a copy. Okay? Thank you,” said Duterte.

    ” ” (which was supposed to be his answer to an anti-Duterte it ran and paid for by Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV) ” ”

    clearly … the one who wrote this is a LIAR!! the anti-duterte ads (those ads that uses children) was aired on the evening of “LAST DAY” of campaign period.

    Di kami tanga mga gago. everyone knows they aired it on the last day to ensure there will be no counter measure for the other side.

    mga gago gagawa nalang kayo ng palusot butas pa. tang ina nyo.

    Inuuna kasi ang pangsariling interes ng ab(ia)s-cbn ng mga lopezes imbes na serbisyo, ginagamit pa ang istasyon para manira ng kalaban ng manok nila na si (mura)mar. Dilawan!.
