The Court of Tax Appeals clarified that it did not issue any freeze order on the bank accounts of congressman and boxing champ Manny Pacquiao.

Atty. Margaret Guzman, clerk of court at the CTA, said Pacquiao has filed a civil case with the court last August questioning the assessment issued against him and his wife for P2.2 billion.

"Sometime October 18, the petitioners, congressman Pacquiao and Jinky Pacquiao filed urgent motion to lift warrants of restraint and levy and garnishment and for the issuance of an order to suspend the collection of tax with prayer for issuance of TRO. That is the one being heard by the court currently. No ruling as of yet has been rendered by the court to that effect. Whether or not the court will grant the motion or deny the motion," she told ANC.
