Para kay Senador Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson hindi katanggap-tanggap ang ginawang resolusyon ng US Senate na humihiling na ibasura ang kasong kinasasangkutan nina Seandor Leila de Lima at Maria Ressa ng Rappler.

“What is unacceptable is the passage of a resoluition by the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations that calls for the dismissal of charges against any respondents in a criminal case, in this case Senador Leila de Lima and Maria Ressa,” sabi pa ni Lacson.

Aniya, winawasak nito ang integridad ng judicial system ng bansa.

“It is an affront to the integrity of our courts and the country’s judicial system. Even the President or any executive official, or any member of our Congress, cannot issue a formal resolution that will encroach on the power of a co-equal branch of government,” ani Lacson.
