Ronnie Dayan, Senator Leila de Lima's former driver and alleged bagman, on Thursday denied that he took advantage of the former justice secretary's weaknesses as a woman.
During the House inquiry on the Bilibid drug trade, Kabataan Party-list Rep. Harry Roque asked Dayan about De Lima's claim that he fell in love with Dayan because of her “frailties as a woman.”
"Sa tingin mo pinagsamantahalan mo ang kahinaan ni Leila de Lima bilang isang babae noong kayo ay nagkaroon ng relasyon?" Roque asked.
[Do you think you took advantage of Leila de Lima's weaknesses as a women when you had a relationship?] Dayan, however, denied this, saying he just fell in love with the senator.
"Basta umibig ako sa kanya, sir. Inibig din niya ako," he said. [I just fell in love with her and she fell in love with me.]
Earlier, he also admitted to having a seven-year relationship with the former justice chief.
