This is another expose because the bank account that allegedly received millions of pesos from Sen. Leila de Lima when she was still the Justice Secretary in Aquino Adminsitration... belonged to her former driver, this was disclosed on Thursday by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre III, quoting a former employee of the senator. He confirmed that an employee of the(DOJ) named Jonathan “Jong” Caranto, had executed an affidavit against Sen. De Lima claiming that De Lima had instructed him to deposit several millions of pesos to the bank account of Mr. Ronnie Dayan. Caranto was one of the 2 employees who had allegedly executed affidavits against De Lima. The other employee was named in some media reports as a certain Edna “Bogs” Obuyes.
Dayan, on the other hand, has been tagged by President Rodrigo Duterte as De Lima’s alleged bagman who had collected drug payoffs for her. “Binibigyan daw sya (Caranto) ng pera ni De Lima para ideposit dun sa account ni Dayan,” Aguirre told reporters after attending a Senate hearing. The DOJ chief vehemently denied De Lima’s statement that the two employees, who worked with her when she was the Justice Secretary, were forced to execute their affidavits.
