“The University of Santo Tomas wishes to extend its support to ABS-CBN, its media partner,” the post added. “ABS-CBN has won numerous awards for its entertainment, news, and public service programs at the USTv Students’ Choice Awards.”
Earlier, the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) filed at the Supreme Court (SC) a motion for a “gag order” to halt ABS-CBN and other parties from talking about the quo warranto petition.
The quo warranto petition lodged against ABS-CBN sought to invalidate the media giant’s legislative franchise, which is expected to expire on March 30.
The House of Representatives has yet set a hearing on the 11 bills aimed at renewing the network’s franchise.
