Senator Leila de Lima's former driver-bodyguard, Ronnie Dayan said the senator texted him and advised him to skip the House probe on the proliferation of drugs inside the Bilibid prison.
According to Dayan, he really wanted to attend the hearing after receiving the subpoena but instead followed the advised of De Lima to hide when his daughter, Hannah Mae informed her.
"Ang reply niya sa anak ko, 'huwag mo na siyang pa-attend... huwag siyang umattend diyan, pagkakaguluhan lang siya diyan.' Sabi niyang ganun, 'pagtatawanan lang kaming dalawa, magiging kahiya-hiya kami diyan na dalawa," Dayan said.
"Gustong-gusto kong attendan yung hearing pero ang sabi ni Ma'am sa text niya sa aking anak... 'Pakisabi sa kanya magtago lang siya.... magtago lang muna siya," Dayan added.
In the report, the date of the message sent was at 6:14 p.m. on October 1, 2016. Also, in the text of De Lima, it is said that it was the scheme of Speaker Alvarez and ordered by President Duterte.
"Pagpasensiyahan lang... pagpasensyahan lang siya at akming dalawa kapag mag-appeal siya... kahiya-hiya, ano... pagpipiyestahan lang siya at silang dalawa kapag nag-appear siya sa hearing," Dayan said.
