Malacañang backed the Office of Solicitor General’s (OSG) move asking the Supreme Court (SC) to issue a gag order against ABS-CBN to stop the latter from discussing the issues concerning its franchise renewal.

“Tama naman siya (SolGen Jose Calida) doon kasi parang nagiging emotional ang issue on this particular topic. It’s much ado about nothing. It’s not about press freedom,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a media briefing Tuesday.

Panelo said Calida’s plea was necessary because the quo warranto case filed by the OSG against ABS-CBN is pending before the Supreme Court.

“If it’s pending before the court it becomes sub judice. The parties have been asked to comment 10 days from receipt of the order. Meron na. The court has acted on it,” he added.

On February 18, the OSG filed a motion before the top court preventing the television network from talking about the the franchise renewal issue.

The SC en banc has given ABS-CBN Corp. and ABS-CBN Convergence Inc. five days from receipt of the notice to reply to the gag order motion.
