As the heated attacks continue, President Rodrigo Duterte slams Senator Leila De Lima once again for causing a narco-state as she has been allegedly involved in transactions of illegal drugs in the New Bilibid Prison.
According to President Duterte, De Lima's being elected as a Senator brought in the nacro-state in the government. He said that the senator has not expected her alleged relationship and involvement in illegal drugs would not come out when she ran in the elections.
Duterte added that the senator remains coy and does not admit her "immoralities", mentioning the supposed sex video of her and her driver and rumored lover Ronnie Dayan, who was also tagged as her bagman who collects money from drugs inside the NBP.
In a hearing held on Thursday, an ex-policeman named Engelberto Durano revealed that De Lima had accepted a shoe box directly from him containing cash worth P1.5 million.
The senator denied the allegation and said that she does not even know Durano. She further said that she has never been involved in corruption and illegal drugs.
Senator De Lima has been allegedly involved in illegal drugs as high-profile inmates testified against her and revealed her role in drug transactions inside the national penitentiary when she was the justice secretary during the administration of previous president Benigno Aquino III.
