Ronnie Dayan, Senator Leila de Lima's former driver and alleged bagman, on Thursday used storm signals to describe the intensity of his seven-year love affair with the former justice secretary. During Thursday's House inquiry on the narcotics trade, Ilocos Norte Rodolfo Fariñas asked Dayan how intense their relationship was before it ended. "Medyo signal number 1 na lang po sir medyo mahina-hina na po," De Lima's former driver answered.
[It was just signal number one, it was kind of weak.] Asked how intense it once was, Dayan said: "Umabot din po siguro mga signal number 5 sir." [I think it reached signal number 5.]
