International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines urges immediate re-opening of ABS-CBN

The International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) has issued a statement urging the National Telecommunications Commission to provide a temporary extension of ABS-CBN’s franchise to operate.


In the statement, ICHRP Chairperson Peter Murphy said that the basic right to freedom of the media in the case of ABS-CBN has been erased by pressure from the President. He mentioned in the statement, “If you are expecting [a renewal], I’m sorry. You’re out. I will see to it that you’re out’.
