Matagal na pong nagtiis ang aking kliyente, 2005 pa po. She tried to make it work, ayaw niya sanang magreklamo at humantong sa ganitong aksyon, ngunit hindi na po niya kaya,” Atty. Topacio was quoted as saying. “Ito na lang po ang nakikita niyang paraan upang tumigil na po 'yung mga ginagawa po sa kanya at sa kanyang mga anak (My client has been suffering for a long time, since 2005. She tried to make it work. She didn’t want to complain and resort to this, but she can’t stand it anymore. She sees this as the only way to prevent what has been happening to her and her children.).”

Atty. Topacio also explained that his client has been “under intense and tremendous emotional stress” since Saturday. He likewise said that Raymart is armed, a detail that was mentioned in the TPO.

When Claudine was interviewed about the TPO, she said, “I just want to be protected and I want my children to be protected.”
