On the statement released by MTRCB last April 4, as quoted "MTRCB pointed out that ABC TV5 should be able to impose punitive sanctions on the program and its hosts, which can range from a reprimand to a cancellation of the TV program itself, in the spirit of self-regulation." . The implemented sanction will be subject to approval of the Hearing and Adjudication Committee and Chairman Llamanzares.The punishment maybe a suspension of the program or the host, it can be one week suspension or to a maximum of one month.
