Duterte slammed ABS-CBN over alleged swindling and estafa and said that he would file a complaint against the network.
"So, I will file a complaint. Congress, no need to renew it. But to operate is something else, so I will point this out, yung basura ninyo (your garbage), then we’ll see," he said.
"[The franchise] has been there for about 25 years. Sabi ng batas okay na, (the law says it's okay) only if you adhere to journalistic [standards]. Ang ginawa ninyo sa amin (What you did to us was) estafa, swindling, not only me but (Chiz) Escudero, marami pa yan (there's more). P***** i** harap-harapan magkolekta kayo tapos estafa ninyo kami (S** o* * b****, you'll collect money then you'll commit estafa)."
