Asked whether Duterte’s claims were true, Dayan remained mum, saying he would tell all in the Congress hearing.

“Wala akong masasabi. Hindi pa ako handang sumagot sa mga ganyan (I have nothing to say. I am not yet ready to answer those kind of questions),” he said.

Dayan underwent booking procedures at Camp Crame before he was whisked to the House of Representatives where a makeshift detention cell awaits him. TVJ
