Che Che Lazaro on the GSIS complain

Bookmark and Share

Last Friday nilabas ko sa blogh na ito ang official statement ni Che Che Lazaro isang batikang broadcaster mula sa Probe Team Production at ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs.

“It is mind-boggling why I am being singled out for prosecution for following the tenets of responsible journalism. If raising the concerns of underpaid public school teachers deprived of their benefits by a publicly accountable government institution and giving my accuser the airtime to explain her boss's side of the story are now considered crimes under our laws, then I plead guilty.

This is a small price to pay for bringing a perfectly legitimate public interest issue out in the open. Probe will not be intimidated into submission. I just wish my accuser will play fair and hire private lawyers instead of using government lawyers (from the GSIS), whose salaries are incidentally paid for by, among others, the teachers shortchanged by the questionable policy of the GSIS and private citizens like me who pay taxes.

In the last 22 years, Probe has carved a niche in the industry and won recognition here and abroad for consistently adhering to time-honored journalistic values of accuracy, fairness and objectivity. My team and I have no plans of changing the way we work just to accommodate the personal agenda of people in power.”

Para sa akin hindi wire tapping ang issue dito bugkos tulad nang statement ng Center for Media of Freedom and Responsibility na inililihis ng ng GSIS ang totoong issue dahil para sa akin bago nila ireklamo ang harassment na ito ay sana ayusin muna nila ang suliranin ng mga public school teachers na kung saan hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa sapat ang nakukuha nilang benepisyo mula sa kanilang mga trabaho.
