Senator Leila de Lima briefly smiled and waved at her supporters outside the Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court, gesturing a 'Laban' and a 'five' sign. 

The 'Laban' sign had long been associated with the Liberal Party and the palm out had been her signature pose while campaigning, a play of the Filipino term for the number five, 'Lima.'

CIDG officers then asked her to put her arm back into the vehicle and closed her window.

De Lima was brought to the court and presented to the judge after she was served an arrest warrant at the Senate earlier Friday.

She will be brought to Camp Crame, where she will be detained at the custodial center.
