Gabby Lopez made to recite ‘Panatang Makabayan’ as solons insist he’s not Filipino

Several lawmakers continue to insist that ABS-CBN chairman emeritus Gabby Lopez is not a Filipino.

As if last week’s repetitive questioning was not enough, members of the House of Representatives again quizzed Lopez about his dual citizenship, hoping to prove their point this time – that he violated laws when he ran the Kapamilya network.

Rep. Rodante Marcoleta became a laughing stock on Twitter when he went as far as demanding Lopez to recite the first line of the “Panatang Makabayan,” a verse often recited during flag ceremonies in schools and government offices.

Lopez eventually recited the first line: “Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas.”

Marcoleta, however, accused Lopez of getting coached by his lawyer.
