Julius Babao Probes Eye Bank’s Removal of Slain Teen’s Cornea
August 19, 2012 by ABS-CBN
Broadcast journalist Julius Babao investigates the recent incident involving the Eye Bank Foundation of the Philippines whereIN it allegedly took the corneas of a slained youth leader without any permission from his family this Monday (Aug 20) on “XXX.”
The Infante family cried foul over the Eye Bank’s act that added to their grief over the killing of the young member of their family. But the Eye Bank defends itself by saying what they did “was done in good faith and in accordance with the mandate of the Eye Bank Foundation, and with utmost respect and care for Jason.”
As Julius finds solution to the Infante family’s problem, Pinky Webb and Anthony Taberna will expose the wrongdoings of an insurance agency as well as the defects in the government’s issued passports.
Pinky heeds the call of a family who has been running after the death benefits of their father from BF Insurance Corporation. Three years have passed and they are still unable to get the necessary amount from the insurance company that claims to have insufficient funds to pay them.
Anthony, on the other hand, will probe if Philippine passports are tamper-proof in the light of a legislative investigation being conducted by the House Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability.
Find out the full details on “XXX” this Monday (Aug 20) after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN or watch it earlier at DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable ch 26) the same night at 9:15 p.m.
