LP official criticizes order to close ABS-CBN

By Mario Casayuran

Will the shutdown of ABS-CBN network help stop the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19)?

Erin Tanada, former Deputy House Speaker and Liberal Party (LP) vice president for external affairs, expressed this sentiment as the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic ‘’is a crucial time for all of us.’’

‘’Now, more than ever, we need a free press to help us reach our people with timely and relevant information. What will issuing a cease-and-desist order to ABS-CBN achieve?’’ he asked.

‘’We just celebrated Press Freedom Day last Sunday, and this is how we repay information and democracy front-liners?’’ he said.
