    Per Representative De Vera, "Since the testimony of Mr. Ronnie Dayan pertains to the fact that the Hon. Sen. Leila de Lima prevented him from testifying before this committee and in the interest of fair play, let us hear first Sen. De Lima, I move that a show cause order be issued by this committee to Sen. Leila de Lima why she should not  be cited in contempt."

    Ronnie Dayan, De Lima's driver-bodyguard and lover, corroborate that the Senator urged him not to appear on House proceedings.

    "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," said Dayan. 

    He substantiate Leila De Lima's reply to her daughter saying, "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."

    De Lima has been invited to The House of Representative's inquiry multiple times but the Senator ignored and spurned the summons. Likewise, they've ordered De Lima to show cause why she should not be held in contempt for supposed obstruction of justice.
