Sandra Cam to De Lima: “Bakit di nya masabi ang totoo sa relasyon nya sa kanyang bodyguard-driver?
Whistleblower Sandra Cam is daring Sen. Leila de Lima to categorically deny President Rodrigo Duterte’s claim that she was immoral for having as a lover her bodyguard-driver who was very much married.
“Bakit di nya masabi ang totoo sa relasyo nya sa kanyang bodyguard-driver? Tingnan natin sino malalaglag sa upuan,” said Cam in an interview with DZMM’s Henry Omaga-Diaz Saturday afternoon.
De Lima has neither denied or confirmed if she had romantic relations with her bodyguard-driver, Henry Palisoc Dayan, two days after Duterte spilled the beans on her extra-marital affair.
In a press conference Saturday morning, de Lima confirmed that she was close with her bodyguard but refused to comment further because it was a personal issue which could distract from her probe of the extra judicial killings in Duterte’s anti-drugs war.
“Dati pa po talaga ko yan na driver-bodyguard or bodyguard-driver mula pa noong ako ay private practitioner bago pumasok sa gobyerno. Napalapit sya sa akin pero kung gaano kalapit sa akin, ipagpaumanhin ninyo po muna na ‘di ko muna…I don’t want to touch it muna kasi pesonal na bagay na yan.
Ayaw ko pong malihis ang mga usapin na yan sa personal na bagay,” said de Lima. “I’m just an ordinary citizen, my advocacy is to stop corruption. Hindi rin naman ako malinis, pero wag naman siyang magmalinis,” said Cam who was one of the main sources of Duterte’s claims against de Lima.
