People have reacted to this motion, deeming it "unnecessary", and claiming that more cases should be given a higher priority than this.
Musician Freddie Aguilar joined in the protest and said on his Facebook wall that Carpio-Morales was only looking for fame, and is a hindrance to the process of achieving change in the country.
Politician Greco Belgica also criticized the Ombudsman saying that more cases should given attention, such as the unresolved cases of the DAP, PDAF and Yolanda funds.
Meanwhile, Dela Rosa says he welcomes any investigation on him.
