“Bait baitan ang mama?!”
This line from lawyer and blogger behind the FB page “Nick Nañgit – NCN Law” IMO pretty sums up his FB post in reaction to the ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak’s statement on possible retrenchment should the Kapamilya network fails to resume broadcast asap.
You may read the full statement of ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak that elicited the reaction from Atty. Nick Nañgit.
Moving forward, Atty. Nick Nañgit remarked that the Kapamilya network is either lack corporate due diligence or they just did prepare any eventuality. Worse, it was deliberate and allow the situation to go this far, to anger people and allow them to lay the blame against the government when in fact it was their fault all along?
“Wala kayong corporate due diligence at hindi nyo pinaghandaan yan? O talagang naka program na, para paabutin sa puntong yan, pagalitin ang mga tao, at hayaang sisihin nila ang pamahalan na kayo naman ang puno’t dulo ng kamalian?”
The lawyer figured if indeed they are concerned of their employees, why did they not push their franchise application since 2014? “Kung talagang concerned kayo sa mga 11M employees chorvanez, bakit hindi nyo pinush noon pang 2014 ang aplikasyon nyo?”
Atty. Nick Nañgit remarked the Lopezes have other companies capable of absorbing ABS-CBN employees. He cited Big Dipper company which he said employs 12 people. It is a huge revenue earner, so he sees no reason why it cannot absorb some of the ABS-CBN employees! Probably, it is not prohibited by its Articles of Incorporation.
“Besides, ang dami nyong kumpanya na pwedeng saluhin sila! 12 lang ang tauhan ng Big Dipper noh! Laki ng kita nun, e di iabsorb nyo! Malamang hindi yun bawal sa Articles of Incorporation nyo.”
Atty. Nick Nañgit warned Katigbak from telling the public that artists who are independent contractors are affected by the so-called retrenchment? He said those affected are the rank and file, supervisors and managers. These are loose change, he said. Star Cinema, ANC and their pay-per-view programs will continue their operation. These employees can find work in those companies.
“Wag mo sabihing yung mga artista na independent contractors e kasama sa retrenchment?! Rank and file lang, mga bisor, at managers ang tatamaan. Barya lang yan! May sariling kumpanya rin ang Star Cinema nyo, ang ANC, at ang mga pay per view programs, so tuloy pa rin yun. Dun sila magsumiksik!”
Atty. Nick Nañgit said that before ABS-CBN can start retrenching people, he asked if they already filed voluntary dissolution at SEC? If not, manu things can still happen.
“At saka wait a minit kapeng mainit! Bago mag retrench, nag file na ba kayo sa SEC ng voluntary dissolution??? Kung di pa, wag ka muna mag kemerut, marami pang pwedeng maganap!”
Atty. Nick Nañgit ended the FB post telling Katigbak that their strategy of using the 11K employees as a tool to scare the public won’t work any more, only in the movies. He said Katigbak cannot hide his true color by wearing white because he can still his true color that envelops him.
“Ang kyeme mo, koya! Takutin ba at gawing mangmang ang mga Pilipino? Oi, sa pelikula lang yan uubra. Don’t me! Magsuot ka man ng puti, nakikita ko ang kulay na bumabalot sayo! Chura mo! =D”
