SAGIP party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta has scored ABS-CBN for supposedly using a double standard when it comes to reporting charity work.

In a speech during the House of Representatives’ first hearing on ABS-CBN’s franchise application Tuesday (May 26), Marcoleta said ABS-CBN likes to hype relief efforts of its Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. (ALKFI) when the donations come from donors.

“Kapag politiko o government official ang nagkawanggawa, epal ang tawag dito ng ABS-CBN kahit pa galing sa sariling bulsa ng politiko ang pinanggalingan nito. Pero pag ito ay galing sa Lingkod Kapamilya, puro pangalan ng ABS-CBN ang kanilang ipinangangalandakan,” he said.

“Alam naman natin na galing sa mga donors ang pondo na ginait nila. Meron kayang galing sa yaman ng ABS-CBN?” Marcoleta added.

The lawmaker, who is against granting ABS-CBN a new franchise, said there were allegations that ABS-CBN is using ALKFI as a tax shield. The organization also reportedly failed to pay donor’s tax.
