De Lima admits affair with driver Ronnie Dayan

Relationship borne out of trust, senator says, but also doubts he tapped into drug money

Published

By MB Online

After consistently remaining mum in the past, Senator Leila de Lima confirmed what had been rumored all along: she had a relationship with her former driver and bodyguard Ronnie Dayan.

De Lima made the confession exclusively on Winnie Monsod’s “Bawal ang Pasaway” program, which aired Monday evening, November 14, on GMA News TV.

“Frailties of a woman,” the lady senator said when Monsod asked why, given her status, she fell in love with a driver like Dayan.

She said it was borne out of trust: “We became so close. That’s it. I trusted him. Siyempre, naano po ang loob ko.”

De Lima had kept silent about the affair even as President Rodrigo Duterte himself was using it as ammunition in his invectives against the senator.

The closest to admission she made was during an earlier interview on ABS-CBN News Channel, when she said she was “very close” to her former driver/bodyguard.

Dayan collecting drug money ‘possible’

While not disclosing when the relationship with Dayan began, De Lima told Monsod it went on for a “few years” until they ended the affair before her senatorial bid.

She said Dayan had long been estranged from his wife.

In one of the House of Representatives inquiries on the alleged Bilibid drug trade, De Lima’s former bodyguard, Joenel Sanchez, claimed her relationship with Dayan ended in March 2015 after he got jealous with De Lima’s new bodyguard, whom he identified as Warren Cristobal.

She also admitted to helping Dayan financially, but not in the construction of his home in Urbiztondo, Pangasinan.

Dayan is being accused as De Lima’s bagman for the money from the drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison that she used to fund her 2016 senatorial bid. He had not been seen in his house in Urbiztondo since the controversy cropped up.

While De Lima said Dayan illicitly using her name to collect drug money is “within the realm of possibilities,” she remained doubtful, saying she would have known if it was true.

‘Drug-money-free’ campaign

But the former justice secretary belied the allegation—which the president primarily propagates—that her campaign kitty came from drug money.

“Very clear ang instruction to the staff na huwag tayo basta-basta tumanggap galing sa hindi natin kilala, at least hindi natin alam ang background. Lalo na iyong ganyan, mga drug lords, mga convicts, mga sino mang notorious na mga tao. Hindi tayo pwedeng tumanggap diyan. Ang alam ko po, sinunod po iyan ng staff ko,” De Lima told Monsod.

She reiterated the disclosure she made in her statement of contributions and expenses (SOCE) before the Commission on Elections.

Her SOCE indicated she had spent P86,153,300.49 and received P86,831,095.19 from 190 individuals, making her the 14th biggest spender and 12th biggest recipient, respectively, among 2016 candidates.

One of her donors, who gave approximately P1,486,722, was her former husband, lawyer Plaridel Bohol II.

De Lima currently faces charges before the DOJ after she was implicated in the Bilibid drug trade during the House of Representatives inquiry, where some high-profile inmates testified that she protected the drug trade in exchange for money.

She had repeatedly denied the allegations, accusing instead the president of being vindictive as she opposed his bloody war on illegal drugs.

      are you a saint to judge …

      • Joshua Tre

        You forget De Lima is a Senator

        • Harper

          That does not mean she should be condemned and tried in the newspapers about her sex life . So what she had an affair .. I even know a local monseigneur who has a girlfriend will you write articles in the paper about him also.No one really cares it is just a drama.
          I believe she is guilty of Drug trafficking or helping the drug kingpins but let be settled in court if you can get the courts working.

          • Von Merced Villafranca

            she should be condemned. SHE IS A PUBLIC SERVANT and people who voted for her EXPECTS AS MUCH DECENCY (again) SHE HAS. People CARE ABOUT THIS DRAMA. She has been playing the “FEMINIST” wannabe. Ipinapalabas niya na APING API siya. Na inaapi siya ng bagong admin.

            Come on. History is a repeat of itself. Nung nasa admin pa siya ni Pnoy, she worked her ass to jail that stupid GMA and that horrible enrile. At ngayon siya naman ang binalikan ng mga pinag gagawa niya. This is a fair fight for FILIPINOS.

            I agree with your statement ” I believe she is guilty of Drug trafficking or helping the drug kingpins but let be settled in court if you can get the courts working.”
            Yes, the courts will be working, and it’s up to you and all of us who wants to have a day against these mongrels (y).

          • Harper

            She is also Human and makes mistakes and as a public servant she should be held to at least a standard higher than the average citizen. I do think she has be continually shamed in the Newspapers though.
            As for GMA she was and is one of the elites here. Her neck brace was just a scam to stay out of jail. AND iT worked. Not enough evidence. BUllshit ..

          • Von Merced Villafranca

            Yes she IS HUMAN, an INTELLIGENT HUMAN. And she knows the limits of her humanity, her morality, her intelligence, her commitment to serving those who placed her on that position she is clinging onto now.

            That is why, as such, she MUST BE castigated and face the full extent of the LAW. She was a DOJ Secretary. A CHR Head and now a LAWMAKER.
            If you deem that she should be given COMPASSION because of what she CHOSE to DO. Then, sadly you as a very smart person, is giving that BLIND LADY OF JUSTICE a DISERVICE.
            Yes has been continuously shamed in the newspaper. Then it is not your fault nor mine but rather hers. Intelligence is synonymous with being careful. And being careful means that you act on things that will provide you a negative impact on others and positive impact on you and again vice versa.
            A lot of Filipinos are tired. Tired of being oppressed. This is what we all know for a long time now. The only difference is that, this new government is giving voice to those who were muted by course of previous admins.

          • Harper

            What I write is not meant to upset you. I agree, she MUST face her accusers in lawful legal court. They must prove beyond any doubt she is guilty.. All this bickering back and forth is an attempt to make it impossible to find Judge or a Jury (if you do that here), that would not be bias. based on what they have read or heard.
            In my life (66) I have done a few thing I am not proud of and Strive not to make the same mistakes Twice…
            Sorry you feel oppressed …

          • Von Merced Villafranca

            Oh no offense taken my friend. I’m actually enjoying this conversation. I’m learning from you as well. Cheers mate!
            The only funny thing is that some commenters here, takes this discussion to heavy.

          • Yolanda Santos

            Why are you just condemning de Lima but spare the corruption of other public officials? Why aren’t you talking about the adultery and crimes against humanity of Idioterte?

          • Von Merced Villafranca

            crap, guess your not reading thru the lines huh, did I ever mention somewhere that I’m only targeting LDLsaba? In the first place why defend someone(men/women) when you know for a fact that what she/he did is wrong?
            That’s why this is a fucking democracy. Your freedom and mine is at work at this point. We can all point fingers to all public servants doing shit. The only difference is that the current president is a confessed womanizer, and the old hag just admitted to have an affair with her driver.

          • Yolanda Santos

            Public servants kuno politicians are all crooks, and you don’t even know about it.

          • Chance

            The issue is about de lima not duterte, you’re deflecting the issue by putting another issues. You got de lima’s style in senate miss.

          • Yolanda Santos

            I got de Lima’s style? Thank you for mistaking me for de Lima, I am humbled.

            But I am not as smart as her.

          • Joshua Tre

            Maybe where youre from a Senator can have an affair with a married man. Here there is a thing called ethics.

          • Harper

            Who mare you trying to Bullshit There are no ethic here at all. That is why People ask for gifts and put out there hand to get graft .. Why every Government department from Barangay to The Palace are corrupt and Look at how much goes to their pockets. Think about the shit roads. They repair them every 4-5 years because they dont used the cement or steel that are required. Money goes into the Pocket again. Something so simple as a driver license takes half a day to renew. Oh you cannot get a license because they have no cards.. Did they not pay the last bill from the contractor.. Even just finding an honest person here is a chore. It is your own people that do it to you and keeps you all under and oppressed.
            Dont talk about an ethic code in your country or government there is none. And That is the Honest Truth

          • Joshua Tre

            I sense an American in you. I don’t know what argument you’re defending but am after the truth. And the truth is she was head of CHR and DOJ at a time when drugs proliferated. And her actions during her time there reflect her principles. Your argument is sweeping but what were talking about is De Lima and her character. I agree with you on all counts but this move is towards eradicating those in charge during the onset of drugs in MM. One less drug protector is a step towards the Philippines rising again.

          • Harper

            The only thing I took exception with is your claim to ethic in the senate or any part of the Government… As for De Lima once tried she will be I think found not guilty due to lack of evidence. That does not mean she is not Guilty.. Money and Position will win out over laws and Justice. It happens too often to be a coincidence.
            NOT a F___ American
            By the way what is MM?

          • Von Merced Villafranca

            Harper is hitting at Yolanda, look at her arguments(Yolanda).She’s(he I think) keeps on defending LDLsaba but comes up with a messy shallow arguments.

          • Yolanda Santos

            You love to talk about ethics. But your view of ethics is very selective. Why are you talking about the ethics of de Lima yet remain quiet about idoterte’s corruption and crimes against humanity?

            Why aren’t you talking about the 20 senators and 100 congressmen who where implicated in the P10 billion pork scam? Do you have a sense of fairness and justice?

          • Von Merced Villafranca

            Ethics? Crap again. the senator that your defending didn’t consider “ETHICS” when she started humpin` her driver. Or are you thinking that it’s Dayan that forced her? Goodness. Your arguments are all over bes.

            Under the law, a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

            To idioterte, all his enemies are guilty regardless of what the law says.

            You talk about LAWS and blah blah, but here you are, name calling blah blah, that is why your arguments are too bland and shallow(mababaw).

          Have you forgotten Idioterte is a President, and therefore should be beyond reproach?

          • Joshua Tre

            Exactly! De Lima had how many years to investigate him but alas nothing came out of it? Remember PNOY was in power then, and nothing.

            Maybe just maybe Duterte could be clean?!
            Benefit of the doubt.

          • Yolanda Santos

            Duterte is an adulterer. He himself talks about it and his Dutertards laugh and applaud.

          • Joshua Tre

            I will be the first to condemn him if you show me proof of this. I am very objective.

          • ArizonaThinker

            So what… not your business… She is not sleeping with your mate. Once you have cleaned your own home then throw rocks at hers. Besides the topic is mass murder not adulterer.. Let’s not change the topic.

          • Chance

            Let the one who is sinless, yes including you cast the first stone!

          • Yolanda Santos

            I am not sinless, neither are you. The Apostle Paul said, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”.

      • ebc

        She also admitted to helping Dayan financially, but not in the construction of his home in Urbiztondo, Pangasinan.

        Dayan is being accused as De Lima’s bagman for the money from the drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison that she used to fund her 2016 senatorial bid. He had not been seen in his house in Urbiztondo since the controversy cropped up. How about the drug money???

      • Chance

        Are you implying that having an affair is normal since it is already been the views of some people? Yes its De Limas bussiness but she is a public servant and its considered immoral.

        • Harper

          In the Philippines from my prospective it seems to be normal to have a girl on the side. Macho attitudes. Where i Come from I honestly did not know anyone who was having an affair..Yes girlfriends after a DIVORCE… That does not mean it did not happen. Here In Philippines it seems normal Even the Tri-cycle drive has a girl on the side so he says.
          Even as a public servant get over it. but they even have to display the videos.. I just dont think it is a topic that should be re hashed over and over again…

          • gerredo

            so you agree that your wife has someone else?

          • Yolanda Santos

            No Pinoy Macho Man would want his wife to have a boyfriend, of course. But it happens.

            Philippines may be a predominantly Catholic country, but the “kabit” practice is common among males, and yes, among females too.

          • Harper

            Yes! I agree

          • gerredo

            but not with the public servant and a lawyer or else there is repercussion..

          • Yolanda Santos

            Mind you, many of our politicians – kuno public servants, have “Kabits”, have you forgotten? Kahit pulis, may kabits.

            Idioterte- the public servant, is the prime example of a big time adulterer.

          • gerredo

            he was divorced with the first and his current partner is not married one…but your lola got involved with family man, he even denied it at first but admited later…

          • Inigo Montoya

            Is there divorce in the Philippines? Women keeps secrets. Pilipino men brag to much even when don’t have any.

          • teddyboy

            so ilan ang kabit mo pala?

          • Inigo Montoya

            Doon na lang kayo sumama kay Dioterte. He has more rooms for you to be part of his harem.

          • Inigo Montoya

            Why do you want to know?

          • Harper

            Gerredo Your just to IGNORANT to talk to.

          • gerredo

            i know what you mean..but the issue here is about her and not about him..

          • Inigo Montoya

            Nop, i agree that your wife will.

          • gerredo

            how i wish, so that i could do the same….happy?

          • Inigo Montoya

            Not really. But if you are happy with it, its your life and no one can tell you how to live it, unless you get EJK not because of drugs. But because someone you piss off a long time ago got your number. Happy still?

          • Inigo Montoya

            Finally someone with common sense.

          • teddyboy

            Stultissimus

          • Inigo Montoya

            Punctum!

          • Inigo Montoya

            Punctum!

        • Yolanda Santos

          Why are you zeroing on just de Lima. Yes, adultery is wrong. But adultery is common in this country, from the lowliest to the mightiest ones.

          Idioterte is not just a mass murderer but also a shameless adulterer, did you forget? Let the one who is sinless – yes, including you, cast the first stone!

          • Chance

            I am not taking comparisson between the president and senator. For your info my desired president died recently. Dont assume that I’m proclaming myself as a sinless person. You’re assuming too much that if I’m against de lima I’m pro duterte. Well you are dead wrong!

            Let the one who is sinless – yes including you, cast the first stone!

          • Yolanda Santos

            Hey buddy, I supported Miriam too. Sadly, she’s gone.

          • Thermodynamics

            Duterte and De Lima both commit adultery, but only De Lima commits drug trading.

        • Inigo Montoya

          So is Dioterte!

          • Chance

            I am not a fan of duterte cause my desired president died recently. I am not taking comparisson between the senator and president, I’m talking about de limas’s issuea not duterte.

          • Inigo Montoya

            What about it?

      • Joshua Tre

        Being a lawyer and a representative of the Philippines she should be beyond reproach. I don’t know where youre from but in our country that is a cause for disbarment (her being a lawyer) and an ethics committee case.
        She has lost her moral ascendancy and if she has any delicadeza she should resign.

        • Yolanda Santos

          Being a lawyer himself, why is idioterte a mass murderer and a shameless adulterer? Hasn’t he lost his moral ascendancy from since he had over 1,000 people “salvaged” in Davao City? This Hitler Idioterte should be ousted.

          Why are you supporting a lunatic monster!

          • Joshua Tre

            I understand what you are saying but what you say is contrary to what is the truth. Ask anyone from Davao and they will tell you otherwise. It is so easy to brand someone as this and that without learning about both sides.

            I am supporting him not because he’s a populist but because there is concrete proof of his actions. He voices the sentiments of the people.

            I will not attack your views those are your own. Try instead talking to a Dutertard and ask him why Duterte.

          • Yolanda Santos

            Because some people like him does not mean he is not a mass murderer and an adulterer. He is a bloody psychopath Communist who is out to kill 3 million Filipinos, as he vowed.

            It’s useless to talk to Dutertards. They are Neo-Nazi followers of Hitler Idioterte.

          • Prinsesa Urduja

            Yolanda Santos why don’t u answer him w/o mentioning Duterte? Atleast si Duterte hindi nagpapakalat ng drugs. Lumalala ang drugs sa bansa dahil napilitan silang magkalap ng funds para sa campaign ni D5. Ang kaibahan nila ni Duterte atleast si Duterte hiwalay na asawa at inamin niya publicly kung ano ang past niya. Ang problema kay D5 feeling victim paiyak iyak pa yan sa presscon. Sorry siya kasi ikaw ang lang ang nabola niya pero di niya mabibilog utak ng taong bayan.

          • Inigo Montoya

            Paano pala si Paulo Dioterte?

          • Yolanda Santos

            Aside from getting 5,000 EJK victims murdered without trials, Idioterte did another great disservice to the Filipinos. He drove away American tourists and foreign investors. Now our economy and peso are down, causing job losses. Lalong naghirap ang Pilipinas.

            Idioterte’s telling about his infidelity does not absolve him from being a notorious adulterer. Adultery is wrong, whether committed by male or female. So, when you criticize de Lima for her sexual indiscretion, you need to criticize Idioterte and all the corrupt philandering politicians also, to be fair.

          • teddyboy

            hahaha……do you have proof of the 5000 murdered without trial is by Duterte? And your point on economy is non sense as if you know about economics

          • Thermodynamics

            where’s your proof moron? on the 5k EJK? can you pls link?

            also, Peso are down.. didn’t you know that when there is more Job in the country, people tends to buy more? majority of these are imported goods? and when you buy imported, it causes the Peso down versus dollar? (this is one of a reason only)

            so your word “Now our economy and peso are down, causing job losses. Lalong naghirap ang Pilipinas.” is baseless.

          • ArizonaThinker

            100% Correct. Never forget Hitler had a lot of loyal people who liked him as well.. Chavez had a very large following, a catholic as well as a bragging adulterer and a murderer… du30 is in the same group of people…

          • Yolanda Santos

            Exactly.

          • Inigo Montoya

            Children’s from 9-14 are being shot for snatching cell phones. People in Davao actually believed their mayor, that persons involved in drugs are being sent to jail when they are actually killed and dump in a pit, where the CHR are denied to come near and dig it open. Just like the Ampatuans.

          • MahalKoPinas

            You watch what you’re writing. Has it been proven that he is a mass murderer?
            Second, how can he be a shameless adulterer? True, he is living with a companion out of wedlock, but he is separated from his wife. How can he be an adulterer?
            Napakakitid talaga ng utak mo…

          • Inigo Montoya

            Apparently you are not familiar with the cloaking programs we put on to maintain our anonymity. Who is the narrow minded now? Yep, its you!

          • MahalKoPinas

            Oh yes, I do the same to maintain my anonymity.
            And the despicable thing is that you call our President lots of names and attack him with all the vileness you can muster, and hide under that cloak of anonymity.
            Am I favoring our president? Yes, because like him or hate him, he is our President and represents what we are to the eyes of the world. If he does evil, then advise him to stop it (read: ADVISE). If he does good, then appreciate it, and thank him for it.
            But please don’t go to name calling and trash talking and hide under your cloak of anonymity.

          • Inigo Montoya

            Thank you, but no thanks. He is your president. You can keep him. You can favor him all you want. Im sure no one will miss him.
            But threatening commentator to watch what they’re writing? Whooooaa!! Im scared. I shaking all over. You must be one of those tough guys. Just like Dioterte short ugly and obnoxious. You know what they say about short people. They’re so short their brains are so close to their anal sphincter. And by the way why would you need cloaking? Unless you have a problem with drugs.

          • MahalKoPinas

            No my friend, I am not threatening you. I am simply reminding you to watch what you are writing. I am a writer too, and freedom of the press is not an excuse for name-calling, cyber-bullying, lying, and distortion of facts for the benefit of certain interests. You can rage and rant at certain people, or use the strongest words to prove your point, but never should you call a certain person obnoxious names, slander, insinuate or defame him/her.
            Now, compare your post with mine. Who has a problem with drugs?

            Oh, by the way, he is OUR president. Just as Trump is the US of A’s president, even if the majority didn’t vote for him.

          • Inigo Montoya

            To put your mind at ease, I am not a writer. I make my comments spontaneously, freely and instinctively. I call a spade a spade. Writers (here) on the other hands use euphemism deliberately, and in some manner misleading their audiences. So whats the difference? Your point about Saddam and Osama not being armed is incorrect. Is that misleading or is it lying? Anyone who supports terrorism wherever they are in the world is open season. If you want to kill drug pushers in the Philippines, then tell me who gave you the mandate to do so. Does our constitution or any of our laws provided you this privilege? Did the president gave you that right? He does have presidential privilege to give “executive order”. It is therefore against the law to kill another person in our country without a court sanction.
            On the matter of drugs. I take drugs but I have no problem with it. On the matter of presidents, 16 million out of 54 million voters is not even half the numbers. It should have been 27 million and above gets the majority consent. So I am free to give him any title I want.
            Lastly, I have no conclusion or opinion about Trump. All I remember is that American elections are decided by an Electoral College.

          • MahalKoPinas

            Thank you. We may have our differences in opinion, but I respect yours. By the way, I never said that Saddam and Obama were armed when they were killed.

          • Yolanda Santos

            Watch the over 1,000 salvages in Davao City while idioterte was Mayor. Watch the news about the over 5,000 EJKs since Idioterte became President. Has anyone been charged for this murders? None. The PNP death squads and vigilantes are killing with impunity because their psycho boss who ordered the EJKs is bloodthirsty.

          • MahalKoPinas

            Ah yes, just like Obama who ordered the raid on Bin Laden’s safehouse which resulted to Osama’s death, as well as several of his household, plus his wives.
            Just like Bush who ordered the invasion of Iraq and resulted to the death of Saddam, a few thousand Iraqi soldiers who resisted the invasion, and countless civilians.
            Is Duterte different from them?
            And you call our President “Idioterte”? Your state of mind stinks.

          • Yolanda Santos

            Is Idioterte any different? Yes, idioterte is way different because he murders his fellow Filipinos. He is the equivalent of the Communist Pol Pol who murdered millions of Cambodians.

          • MahalKoPinas

            So ordering the killing of Osama and Saddam is better than ordering the killing of drug pushers?
            So it’s reasonable to order the killing of foreign nationals in their own countries, even if they are unarmed, and not reasonable to allow your police to kill drug pushers if they pull out their weapons while resisting arrest? I like your logic – it’s so convoluted.

          • Inigo Montoya

            I don’t think he did any lawyering except for taking land and other properties from poor people.

      • Iskotero

        It is ok for De5 to do this illicit affair because other people do it? And people who frown upon De5’s behavior is a saint or judge?

        De5 is a elected official. She has sworn to serve and protect the not only the people who put her in office but all in this nation. She betrayed the peoples trust by her lies and inappropriate behavior, cavorting with a married man.

        She is a public figure, a Senator at that. Her immoral conduct is not her business only. It is the peoples business. She and people who support her conduct obviously does not understand this.

        • Harper

          My comment was addressed to “eagleclaw101”. As for her behavior in her sex life, senator or not is her business; Would you be ranting or rutting if It was a male accused of sleeping around..

          • Iskotero

            Gender does not matter. For you, whatever she does is fine. That’s ok, if that’s your opinion. For me, it’s not and the reasons are right there in my comment. It’s you who are “ranting or rutting”.

            Look, many government officials, Bill Clinton is a good example who almost got impeached and there are many others, who resigned from their office because of issues like this one.

      • eldon

        IT isn’t only ABOUT HER relationship with HIM. It’s about HER and the fkin DRIVER who had a mansion from who knows where it came from.

        • Harper

          I assume he was well paid for all his services to De Lima. Driver , Bodyguard, Bag-man and Sex Partner.

    • Yolanda Santos

      And you support the mass murderer and shameless adulterer Idioterte? What’s wrong with you?

      • Von Merced Villafranca

        Mass murderer? Again, shallow, unsupported by facts arguments. Crap again.Give us actual datas/links to prove that THERE WAS MASS MURDER made somewhere in this part of the country.
        Tumigil ka na sa mababaw mong argumento. Go back to school. Teach yourself to read.

      Where is the problem. If your president can have two wives and a lot more mistresses then Sen. Leila de Lima. also can live her life the way she chooses to…… Why are we becoming hypocrites

      • Inigo Montoya

        …..but…… but….. but …..sir. The mayor only keeps them in a boarding house.

      • Thermodynamics

        but De Lima’s affair contains drugs.. Affair with a normal person and a drug trader/lord is different..

        • Chris

          Then it would be worth discussing the drug issue instead relationship of the two as its common on our society..

          • Thermodynamics

            definitely.. and this is drug issue, De5 receiving drug money from Ronnie, but De5 said that she is NOT connected with this drug trader/lord.. So Duterte asked like, if you are not connected with each other, why do you have such relationship?

          • Chris

            “De5 receiving drug money from Ronnie, but De5 said that she is NOT connected with this drug trader/lord.”
            -she admitted relationship with Dayan but did not recognize him as drug trader.. there is a difference..

          • Thermodynamics

            she deny earlier, but admitted later..

          • Chris

            omg! what level of thinking you have? i just made a distinction..

      • Idoy

        Pres Trump had 3 wives – all legal. Duterte had two wives all legal. Just like Trump, wives left him and so as Duterte, his 1st wife left him. There is no divorce law in the Philippines, so Duterte married his current wife today. As for committing against religious doctrine, Duterte did not covet thy neighbors wife. DUTERTE DID NOT COMMIT ADULTERY. Both were adults and had consensual agreement to get married legally. THERE IS NO HYPORCRACY ISSUE. De Lima coveted thy neighbor’s spouse the married guy DAYAN – that is against religious doctrine and also against Phil Senate ethical standards punishable by expelling.

    • Inigo Montoya

      Thanks you.

    SAPAGKAT KAMI AY TAO LAMANG.(Lyrics by Levi Celerio)

    Puso, kahit hindi turuan
    Nakapagtataka natututuhan din ang magmahal
    Tunay kami’y nagmamahalan
    Kung kasalanan man ay sapagkat
    Kami ay tao lamang
    Kahit Diyos na ang siyang may utos
    Dahil sa pagsinta
    Damdamin din ang siyang nasusunod
    Di ba tayo ay tao lamang
    Ganyan tayong lahat
    O kay saklap ng buhay
    At kung iyan may ay kasalanan
    Ay sapagkat kami ay tao lamang

    (Bridge)
    Kahit Diyos na ang siyang may utos
    Dahil sa pagsinta
    Damdamin din ang siyang nasusunod
    Di ba tayo ay tao lamang
    Ganyan tayong lahat
    O kay saklap ng buhay
    At kung iyan man ay kasalanan
    Ay sapagkat kami ay tao lamang

  • John Puruntong

    The Ombudsman and The Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Delima.
    Delima admitted her personal affair with her addict driver and subordinate Ronnie Dayan. In doing so, she directly admitted as well to her sexual relationship with the latter. This is corroborated by sex video tapes that can’t be shown to public, unless Delima waives and allows this to be shown and for her to refute this.
    Ronnie Dayan is the confirmed bagman from the protection of the drug trade. Although at the moment, money trail cannot directly established the link to Delima, who’s very good at hiding this money because AMLCC isn’t helping, Delima BENEFITED from the proceeds of the drug trade by SEXUAL FAVORS from his addicted driver lover, Ronnie Dayan, who is a married man.
    Sec. 27 of RA 9165 states:
    “Any elective local or national official found to have BENEFITED from the proceeds of the trafficking of dangerous drugs as prescribed in this Act, or have received any financial or material contributions or donations from natural or juridical persons found guilty of trafficking dangerous drugs as prescribed in this Act, shall be removed from office and perpetually disqualified from holding any elective or appointive positions in the government, its divisions, subdivisions, and intermediaries, including government-owned or –controlled corporations.”
    She must be investigated immediately by the Umbudsman for violation of the Dangerous Drugs Act and by the Senate Ethics Committee for her expulsion as senator, and be investigated later for her criminal liability.

    Whatever people do in their private lives is their own business.Should focus on corruption this is the root of all problems it create poverty,drug problems and criminality.Traitor hitler Duterte is coward when dealing with the bad big fish,matapang lang siya sa mga maliliit na isda.

  • Yolanda Santos

    Sure, adultery is wrong, but who among the critics of Leila don’t commit adultery? Idioterte is not just a mass murderer, he is also a shameless adulterer who talks about Viagra as if it is a medal of honor. “Kabit” is common practice among many politicians. Many cops make “kotongs” to support their mistresses and secret families.

      If RP Priests are not Pedophilic, they are
      corrupt thief’s to feed their hidden family(ies) .

      all Churches were depleted from their contents,
      Spanish times hardwood statues replaced by
      grotesque industrial Plastic,
      Ivory hands and heads gone by predators…
      RP Churches and Cathedrals are empty worship places for a bogus Colonial failed Christianity.
      RP Churches are Manila Bay mirrors for basura…

    What Delima wants from Dayan is love and sex but what Dayan wants from Delima is money that could make his family comfortable, that is the reason why Dayan has two big houses in Pangasinan where everyone knows that a mere driver’s income cannot afford to build them. As trusted confidante, Delima made him the overseer of her business interests within and outside DOJ when she was the DOJ secretary. Dayan is not only a driver sweet lover par excellence but he is a good security guard for Delima as well. He also served as front-man, liaison or bag-man as you like in Delima’s business transaction. What business Delima was engaging? Well, for specifics no offense intended, your guess is as good as mine.

    gumastos ng mahigit 86 milyon sa kampanya noong election, pero ang kilalang donor lang ay ang kanyang ex husband na nagdonor ng mahigit sa isang milyong piso lamang..

  • Iskotero

    De5 is preparing to throw her lover, Dayan under the bus and really very very close to a confession she is getting drug money via Dayan:– While De Lima said Dayan illicitly using her name to collect drug money is “within the realm of possibilities,” she remained doubtful, saying she would have known if it was true.

    De5’s bs on Dayan: “We became so close. That’s it. I trusted him.

  • enteng

    Frailties of a woman. hehe soliciting sympathies for an immoral act.

  • Cur Yell

    If the driver has done wrong as those Bilibid inmates have claimed, then Senator De Lima has compromised her credibility & career beyond saving– whether or not she had been aware of his illegal activities. Other than that, although technically liable to the Bar on moral grounds, she is just fine if no one makes a formal complaint. Now, Mr Duterte is likewise liable to the Bar– esp since he talks about multiple women “in apartments”, setting a price on people’s heads, etc. If any of the women are proven to have taken advantage of their proximity to power or if he is found guilty of inciting lawlessness, then he ought to be gone. BUT which joker in our circus will bring him to task? At worst, he may become the new Mayor of Manila when he’s finished as President.

  • Inigo Montoya

    Who cares what you do with your sex life D5. Its your life. Thats what legislators do on their spare time. They get tired of their wives and they do not spare, the labanderas, kasambahay, kosinera, at hardenira. Maybe some have female drivers, for their quickies. SO WHATS THE PROBLEM? Keep it to yourself. We do not want to hear it. UNLESS YOUR A SEX MANIAC WHO LOVES WATCHING PORNO MOVIES LIKE ALVAREZ, AGUIRRE, PAQUIAO, OR PIMENTEL. And Pacquiao better shut his mouth. Because Mama Pacquiao will give him a fat lip, if her story comes out.

  • victor arches

    You’ve been warned already by Pareng Digong to KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!
    But, no, you insist on yakking and drawing attention to yourself. In the process, you have dug your own grave. The Supreme Court will SURELY disbar you from your only profession.

    In addition, with the AMLC finally cooperating with DOJ Secretary Aguirre by turning over bank records to the NBI, the multiple criminal cases against you are now AIR-TIGHT. Your close personal connection to your bagman, Ronnie Dayan (as your common-law husband), you yourself established… ON FILM!

    His whereabouts—somewhere in northern Luzon—are now known; it’s just a matter of time before he is arrested and brought before the bar of justice to testify against you, his paramour and mistress.
    You must be going nuts…

  • affleap

    Delima is 57 years old while Dayan is 44. With more than a decade age difference that qualifies Delima a cougar, a woman having a relationship with a man much younger than she is.
