ACT CIS party-list Representative Eric Go Yap claimed that somebody from ABS-CBN wished to bribe him with an enormous amount of money to favor the Kapamilya Community’s franchise.
Yap made the stated revelation after some media outlet reported that some lawmakers have been trying to pressure different congressmen to vote in opposition to ABS-CBN.
He additionally denied the un-official voting tally circulating on social media, displaying the votes of 46 members of the Committee on Legislative Franchises and 46 Home leaders or ex-officio members.
“Meron pang listahan na nilabas na boto daw ng mga Kongresista kahit na malinaw na malinaw na wala pang nangyayaring botohan. Why use unverified information? Do not mislead the public,” said Yap.
“Nilabas ko ba sa media? Hindi. Dahil hindi tayo sigurado kung emisaryo nga ng ABS CBN yun at unfair naman na malalagay sa alanganin ang pangalan ng ABS CBN dahil sa kanya at unfair din maging sa proceedings ng Joint Committee na tumatalakay sa issue ng prangkisa nila. May nadinig tayo na iba pang kaso gaya nito pero hindi natin nilabas dahil hindi din verified ang mga information na yun,” he added.
He then claimed that somebody who claimed as ’emissary’ of ABS-CBN offered him P200,000,000 in favor of the franchise.
Nonetheless, he refused the cash, explaining that he’s not for sale.
Yap strongly believes that the ‘press freedom’ within the country remains to be alive, however there’s few journalists who selected to point out their biases with out considering in the event that they’re writing a factual information report.
In the meantime, former inside secretary Rafael Alunan III urged Yap to disclose the identification of the ’emissary’ from ABS-CBN.
“You’re a congressman. You’re expected to be lawful. Do not hide the identity of the alleged wrongdoer. Otherwise, your declaration is worthless and mere black propaganda,” said Alunan who also supported the franchise of ABS-CBN.
ABS-CBN has yet to release any statement on the claims of Yap.
