Dayan, De Lima’s former  aide and partner,   said National Bureau of Investigation Deputy Director Rafael Ragos and former Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Director Franklin Bucayu had given him  P15,000 to P30,000 five times after   he recommended them for their  posts.

“Ang dumaan lang sa akin sir yung binibigay dati ni Ragos  na P15,000, P30,000 parang suhol daw nya sa akin sa pag (recommend) ko kay mam bilang OIC Director,”  De Lima’s former aide said, responding to queries of Senator Manny Pacquio during the Senate committee on  public order and  dangerous  drugs on Monday.

“Ganun  din  po si  Bucayo. Yun lang ang naalala ko,” Dayan said, adding that the former BuCor head  had given  him  the same  amounts.

“Ganun din po P15,000, P30,000. Hindi man tumataas, hindi po buwan-buwan.”

FEATURED STORIES

Dayan  said  he had no idea  though  if the money  that Bucayu and Ragos had  been giving him  came from illegal  drugs.

He also  reiterated  that he  had neither   received a single centavo nor collected money from any drug lords, except  from suspected drug  lord Kerwin Espinosa.

“Yun lang po talaga Sir, wala na pong iba, mamamtay man ako ngayon din,” Dayan said.

“Wala na po akong ibang kinuhaan ng pera na ibigay kay Senator De Lima kung hindi si Kerwin Espinosa lang. Wala na po,” he added.

But De Lima has repeatedly denied  Dayan’s allegation.

Before this, Pacquiao  threatened to cite Dayan in contempt  if he would not tell the truth before the committee./rga
