The former lover of Leila de Lima was also allowed by the Muntinlupa court to post bail after six years.
The decision of Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 206 decided to allow De Lima, her former driver and boyfriend, Ronnie Dayan, and others to post bail for P300,000.
It can be recalled that De Lima admitted that she fell in love with Dayan, and the latter also became a witness against the former senator.
Dayan was accused of being the ‘bagman’ of De Lima, who’s tasked to deliver the tributes of the inmates to the former Justice Secretary.
“We became so close. That’s it. I trusted him. Siyempre, naano po ang loob ko,” she said.
“I was very close to him, but I wouldn’t want to be publicly speaking about it. It’s too personal for me,” she also said in another interview.
The former driver of De Lima also said that her boss was aware that he was married when they had an affair.
“Totoo pong nagkaroon kami ng relasyon ni ma’am at nagsimula po ito noon ding 2007. Mga two to three months pa lang ako sa law office niya,” said Dayan.
“Alam din po ni ma’am na may asawa po ako ng mga panahong iyon. Kasal na po ako since 1991,” he added.
Critics of De Lima even claimed that the two recorded a video and even mulled it to show it to the public.
