"These advertisements do manifestly oppose a candidate, and thus, the court cannot allow minor children to be used in such black propaganda," The section 2 of the TRO stated.

Although the TRO was just addressed to ABS-CBN, Cayetano seeks for the other network's cooperation to respect the TRO and refrain their company from showing the disturbing act or they'll be forced to do the legal action.
