“I am hopeful that we will not remain silent in the face of the daily killings taking place in our midst, the flagrant violations of our fundamental rights, and the deliberate efforts to poison our minds, and that of our children,” Sen. Leila De Lima
“The primary objective of the illegal arrest of Sen. De Lima is to send a chilling message to the political opposition and critics that they could be next. Well, the effect to me is exactly the opposite. I am now motivated more than ever to expose him for being a plunderer and mass murderer that he truly is,” ayon kay Trillanes.
“Where else in the world have you seen drug lords turned into state witnesses? All they have ever done is to follow the badly-written script of this administration to pin me down with baseless accusations for their personal gain,” patutsada pa ng detenidong senadora.
“One has to wonder what is worse: to believe fantasies or to make accusations on the basis of such fuzzy logic. In either case he owes me an apology. Otherwise I may have to seek legal action to clear my family’s good name,” ayon kay Madrigal.
“I think she (De Lima) should put herself at rest, and also the other senator. You know, these things follow due process and we do respect the right of everyone,” pahayag kahapon ni presidential spokersperson Ernesto Abella.
“It has come to our attention that these messages/articles/news are still circulating in Facebook. We cannot predict when or where an earthquake will happen. There is no reliable technology in the world that can confidently predict the date, time and location of large earthquakes,” ayon pa sa Facebook page ng PHIVOLCS.
“Our history as a nation is marred by instances where government officials use the processes of criminal justice to cow, silence, and eliminate critics. We cannot, and we must not, stand by and let this happen again,” ani Robredo.

“We turn to God in fervent prayer to heal our land. We beg the Lord to pour forth upon us the passion not for vengeance but for justice. We humbly pray to the Lord who called Himself the Truth to set our hearts aflame for the truth, the truth that sets all of us free,” Archbishop Socrates Villegas
“The precipitate arrest of Sen. Leila de Lima is a stark contrast to the commemoration of the 31st anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution. While the EDSA Revolution is a celebration of freedom and justice, the arrest of De Lima is an anthology of vengeance, fabrication and injustice,” ani Lagman.
Agad nagsampa ng “motion to quash at judicial determination of probable cause” ang kampo ni De Lima upang ibasura ang mga kasong isinampa laban sa kanya na ayon sa naunang mga ulat ay nakatakdang dinggin ng tatlong korte ngayong umaga.
Ito’y makaraang kumpirmahin mismo ng palasyo ng Malacañang na ilang senador ang nakipagpulong kay Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte noong Martes ng gabi.
