DOJ Investigation: P38 million deposited to De Lima’s driver Dayan kin

Money trail shows P38-M deposits went to Leila De Lima driver’s kin.


The Department of Justice obtained bank deposit slips showing that over P38 million in cash deposits went to the bank accounts of Hannah Mae Dayan and Marco Palisoc – daughter and cousin of Ronnie Dayan, Sen. Leila De Lima’s driver and alleged lover in 2014.

Dayan’s account received P24 million in four cash deposits – P3 million on Feb. 7, 2014; P9 million on Feb. 21, 2014; P6 million on March 14, 2014 and P6 million on March 28, 2014.

Palisoc’s account got P14,304,000 in two cash deposits – P9,600,000 on Sept. 16, 2014 and P4,704,000 on Oct. 23, 2014.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II also revealed that probers are in the midst of verifying the bank documents allegedly showing P500 million to P1 billion in drug money that went to a duly registered corporation doing business in the national penitentiary.

Aguirre branded the 10 people linked at the fact-finding investigation on the illegal drug operations in the New Bilibid Prison as “friends of De Lima.”

“If there is any link, it’s indirect – only bank accounts of her companions, friends and employees. But these people have no big sources of income to get millions in deposits, so what other conclusion could you get?” he said.
Meanwhile, Dayan has been subpoenaed to appear in the next hearing, but he is nowhere to be found.

De Lima then continues to deny these accusations from the previous congressional inquiry where high-profile inmates claimed that they gave millions of ‘payola’ to De Lima for protection of their illicit businesses and activities in the NBP. She slammed Aguirre for faking the testimonies.

“Secretary Aquirre and his operators are a mafia of lies and intrigues, who go to bed with criminal convicts just to get their perjured testimonies,” she said.
