A lawyer defended Mrs. Dayan that she is actually more represents #everywoman and the true victim compared to Senator De lima.
Atty. Cheryl Daytec-Yagot criticized Vice President Robredo and Senator Grace Poe for taking sides with De lima. She also disagree to the lawmakers for focusing on the personal life of the lady senator than her alleged involvement in the Bilibid drug trade.
But she pointed out that if there is more worth it to be defended, it was the legal wife of Ronnie Dayan who have been betrayed and cheated for 7 years.
"Why can’t you also use your loud, powerful voice to stand up for one helpless woman who is the ultimate victim, who is actually more #everywoman than De Lima? I do not know her name, but she is the wife of Ronnie Dayan."
She also said that the two powerful women were doing a 'monumental disservice' for Mrs. Dayan, not realizing that she's more the victim here.
Read her full statement below:
DEAR VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO AND SENATOR GRACE POE, YOU DISCRIMINATE. I agree with you, Ms Vice President Robredo and Senator Poe.
The Congressmen were total jerks in asking questions not to surface the truth or untruth about how Sen De Lima used her driver-lover Ronnie Dayan to mulct money from drug lords, but to satisfy their baser prurient instincts. I condemned this earlier than you did. I condemned it as soon as it happened.
But I think you discriminate. You discriminate against a lot of women who are the women who need you more. You defend the right of a woman who possesses enormous power, who is on TV everyday to appeal to public pity, often by telling tall tales. She goes as far as audaciously claiming the position of the ultimate aggrieved woman declaring that no woman deserves to be betrayed by a man, stealing a line more fittingly uttered by the woman cheated by her husband for 7 years to be with his employer, a woman of power who may have committed sexual harassment. Why can’t you also use your loud, powerful voice to stand up for one helpless woman who is the ultimate victim, who is actually more #everywoman than De Lima? I do not know her name, but she is the wife of Ronnie Dayan.
Unlike Senator De Lima, she has no claim to power. Her husband and De Lima acted as if she did not exist for 7 years. The House of Representatives acted as if she did not exist when, in a televised hearing, its members asked Dayan unnecessary questions about the depth of his love for The Other Woman who shamelessly claims to be the victimized #everywoman.
