Leila charged over affair

Sen. Leila M. de Lima is facing administrative charges for grave misconduct and acts prejudicial to the best interest of the service before the Ombudsman over her television confession that she had sexual relation with her former driver-bodyguard.

In his 46-page complaint, anti-graft crusader Greco Belgica sought a six month suspension against the lady solon.

“Sen. De Lima used her power and moral ascendancy to portray the role of Whitney Houston in the movie Bodyguard. She freely and voluntarily admitted to the public via television that she had an illicit relationship with Ronnie Dayan, a married man,” Belgica said. (Jun Ramirez)
