The Supreme Court (SC) has been urged to dismiss the quo warranto petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calida who sought the revocation of the legislative franchise of ABS-CBN.

The call was made by the labor group Defend Jobs Philippines on Wednesday (Feb. 26) as it expressed concern that 11,000 employees of the media giant and their families will be affected by the petition.

“There will be no other way for the SC to prove that it is pro-people and pro-democracy but by junking Atty. Calida’s quo warranto and gag order petitions as it is only meant to silence ABS-CBN, revoke its franchise and leave thousands of its workers and employees jobless,” Defend Jobs Philippines spokesperson Thadeus Ifurung said.

“Now is the best time for our SC justices to prove their independence to the executive and legsilative branches of our bureaucracy and that they will not be dictated by political patronages from President Duterte and his minions like Calida among others,” he added.

Calida filed the quo warranto petition before the SC to revoke the legislative franchise of the network due to alleged violations committed by ABS-CBN.

He also sought gag order as he accused the network of engaging in propaganda that would influence the magistrates to rule in favor of ABS-CBN.
