"We commiserate with Toto Mangudadatu and his family, and to all the relatives of the victims whose lives were taken away by an act guided by neither ideology nor humanity."

"Our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones in this massacre; we plead with them to remain steadfast in their faith. These cold-blooded murderers will be brought to justice."

"We call for the immediate disarmament of all unlawfully armed groups in Maguindanao. Witnesses must be provided a secure environment so they can help us bring the perpetrators to justice without fearing for their lives."

"We call on all peace-loving Filipinos: It is not enough to condemn these killings; we must work together to bring an end to the violence that is maiming the process of peace, democracy, and progress in Mindanao and all throughout the country. The cycle of electoral violence can only be broken by justice and the fulfilled promise of security and equal opportunity for all."
