The Liberal Party senators defended Senator Leila de Lima against the Duterte administration over the impending release of an arrest warrant to the lady senator on Sunday.

Senator Francis Pangilinan, Senate President Pro-Tempore Franklin Drilon, and Senator Paolo Benigno Aquino IV lambasted the administration, they said that the criminal raps may be "as political tool, propaganda, and smokescreen or distractions for the public."

They said that is is a violation of the law not to have 'credible evidence or witness.'

"We call on the Department of Justice to honor the rule of law and due process by supporting the Ombudsman’s investigation, as they should have when its fact-finding investigation commenced in November 2016," they said.

"Filing charges and issuing warrants of arrest without credible evidence or witness is illegal and unjust—whether ordinary Filipino or senator," they added.

"The stabbing of potential witness Jayvee Sebastian also puts a serious cloud of doubt on the veracity of his testimony and those of other inmates made to testify who may all very well be fearful for their lives," they said in the statement.
