Senator Leila De Lima admitted that she and his driver/ bodyguard Ronnie Dayan had past relationship.
She made this statement in an exclusive interview with Winnie Monsod on ‘Bawal ang Pasaway kay Mareng Winnie’ aired on November 14, 2016 on GMA News TV.
De Lima described her affair with her driver as ‘frailties of a woman.’
She said further that the relationship lasted a few years.
Dayan was tagged as the go-between for De Lima and inmates involved in the drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison but the senator denied the allegations.
De Lima also said that she had helped Dayan financially, but she did not finance the construction of Dayan’s home.
She said the relationship was borne of the trust that developed between them and they became so close.
