EstafaDos: Duterte accuses ABS-CBN of fraud for not giving back his money

Apr 11, 2017 @ 8:50

President Rodrigo Duterte has accused ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. of estafa for not paying him back any refund for its failure to air his campaign propaganda a year ago.

“ABS-CBN, inestafa ako niyan. ABS-CBN accepted my money kasi noong — the latter part of the campaign, doon pa ako nagkaroon ng pera ‘yung nag-hit ako ng… Wala mang nagbibigay sa akin, ‘di wala akong pambayad,” said Duterte in a pre-departure briefing.

“So when I got the money sa mga well- meaning supporters, nagbili ako ng airtime para naman masali ‘yung pangalan ko sa… Hindi lumabas. I paid. There’s not even an offer of you ABS to return my money,” he added.

For Duterte, ABS-CBN’s action was a clear case of estafa – a legal term exclusive to the Philippine judiciary.

“Do you know what is the crime? I’ll tell you, it’s very simple, estafa. Tinanggap mo ‘yung pera ko, hindi ninyo in-air. It’s estafa,” said Duterte.

The Duterte was supposed to debunk an anti-Duterte ad played by ABS-CBN and paid for by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
