Attorney Trixie-Cruz Angeles said that the reason why  Senator Leila de Lima is casting light on her affair with her driver Ronnie Dayan is to make the public forget about all the other allegations thrown to her.

Cruz-Angeles said this is a form of "managing crisis issues".

"Mas gusto nyang pagusapan na lang ang mga isyu ukol o nakakaapekto (daw) sa kanyang pagkabababe, imbes na maiungkat pa ang mas seryoso at mapeligrong usapan ukol sa pagkasangkot nya sa illegal na droga. Stratehiya, ika nga." she wrote on her Facebook page.

She said a case of concubinage does not require jail time for the mistresses guilty, they will instead be given "destierro"which simply prohibits them from the conjugal homes of their lovers and the wives thereof.


After the senator admitted her affair with Dayan, a case of concubinage might be filed against her.


"Ang nagiging akusado sa lagay na ito ay ang lalaki, at ang kanyang "kabit." Nguni't ang parusa para sa lalaki ay prision correccional o anim na buwan at isang araw hanggang sa anim na taon.Pero ang parusa para sa babae ay destierro"


"Wala po itong kulong para sa babae." she wrote.



The lawyer also defended herself from people accusing her of being pro-De Lima before.

"Una, kahit kelan di ako naging pro-Delima. Ginagamit nyo yung isang kasong isinampa ko sa DOJ dati bilang ebidensya na panig ako sa kanya? Bakit? Dahil SOJ sya nuon? Pero di nyo nakita ang ilang kasong sinasabi kong mali mali ang mga desisyon nya? Oh well, ganyan talaga ang bulag." she wrote.


"Pagalawa, sabihin nating dati'y pro-Delima ako, (kahit di tutoo), di pwede magbago ng isip? Ang dami nga dyang bumoto kay Noynoy sa maling akalang matino syang leader. Habang buhay na lang ba sila papanig sa kanya?" she added.
