CamSur Rep. Villafuerte tells Lopez family to sell ABS-CBN if they love their workers


Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Raymund “LRay” Villafuerte told the owners of ABS-CBN network to sell the company if they “really love” their 11,000 employees.

“Bottomline, my suggestion to the Lopez family, sell the corporation. If they really love the 11,000 employees or more and if they truly want to serve the Filipino people, and they truly want to serve the Filipino people, bebenta na lang nila yung kumpanya,” Villafuerte told ANC in an interview today.

“I will support the renewal under new management and ownership,” Villafuerte added.

The Camarines Sur solon was one of the 70 lawmakers who voted against the franchise application of the broadcast giant last week.

Villafuerte also noted that Lopezes have already “earned millions” from ABS-CBN.

“This is just a suggestion. Tutal the Lopezes earned millions na and they still have other companies like First Gen and Rockwell,” said Villafuerte.
