On November 24, the controversial Ronnie Dayan faced the House of Representatives and confessed the nature of his relationship with Senator Leila De Lima.
In relation with the allegations against the former justice secretary, House Deputy Speak Fred Castro asked the 44-year old accused if his love for De Lima was “wagas, dalisay at matatag?” (Was it pure and strong?)
To which Dayan replied, “Parang ganun na po.” (It was something like that.)

Castro didn’t end there as he inquired if their relationship was also sexual in nature. Dayan simply answered yes to the question.
The former bodyguard and lover of De Lima was accused of being a bagman and the missing link in the case of the illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).
Before facing the House of Congress today, Dayan asked for a legislative immunity according to the chairman of the House Justice committee Rep. Reynaldo Umali.
Up until November 22, Dayan was in hiding due to the arrest order against him after he failed to show up on a previous hearing. The case, which was brought up by President Rodrigo Duterte himself, also involved the senator whom he accused of neglecting her responsibility as a former secretary of justice.
De Lima already confessed on having a relationship with Dayan. However, she clarified that they cut their ties right before she ran during the senatorial election. She also vehemently denied that the funds from her campaign came from drug trade.

Last Tuesday, Dayan already faced the media and explained that he was in a relationship with De Lima for 7 years. He also admitted that he tried contacting the Senator amidst the controversy but didn’t get an answer back.
