So much for Senator Leila de Lima’s wish for peace of mind.
The lady politiko’s scandalous love affair with her former driver Ronnie Dayan could be a focal point of the House investigation regarding the alleged abundance of illegal drugs within the National Bilibid Prison (NBP).
According to Capiz Rep. Fredenil Castro, President Rodrigo Duterte himself claimed that the proliferation of drugs at the Muntinlupa City facility “began with that love affair”.
“Kasi kung titingnan mo, yong matrix..yong rebelasyon ni presidente na yong love affair, doon nagsimula ang koneksiyon ni Dayan at ang kanyang…parang nagkaroon siya ng authority na makipag usap doon sa mga tao sa bilibid prison,” said Castro, who is a deputy speaker.
“Kaya maaring yong love affair na yon ay masilip din. Natatandaan mo ba ang katagang binitawan ng ating pangulo na love affair na humantong sa bagay na ito?” he stressed.
According to the matrix that was revealed last week by Duterte, De Lima had been Dayan’s mistress since her days as Commission on Human Rights (CHR) chairperson.
De Lima also served as Justice secretary before winning a seat in the Senate last May.
There is also an alleged sex video between De Lima and Dayan, screenshots of which have been making rounds in social media.
The House probe on the NBP in being sought by House leaders headed by Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, a party mate of Duterte’s.
