President Rodrigo Duterte previously accused De Lima having an affair with his driver who collected cash from the Prisoners of New Bilibid for her campaign during the last election.

Duterte's remark in his speech at Camp Crame during the 115th police service anniversary is controversial, after he "exposed" an "immoral woman's illicit affairs" whom he later on revealed to be Senator Leila De Lima.

"Here is an immoral woman, insofar as the driver’s wife is concerned, it’s adultery. Here’s a woman who funded a house of a lover and yet we don’t see any complaint about it," Duterte quipped.

Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronald Bato Dela Rosa assures the people that he will look into the activities of the driver to prove whether the President's accusations have basis.

"To satisfy you, I will conduct my investigation," Dela Rosa said.

PNP Chief Dela Rosa however said they would not meddle with De Lima's personal affairs until the President gives a formal order.

"Sa ngayon, hindi kami nakikialam baka mamaya gawing personal issue against us eh haharap pa naman kami sa Senado. Hindi kami nakikialam dyan," he clarified.

De Lima have slammed Duterte's accusations saying it was a foul form of character assassination.

Now, When Dela Rosa was asked whether the revelation of Duterte will affect the police, he answered: "Affect me? No, naka-focus kami sa issue. ‘Yung side issues, iba ‘yan. Doon kami naka-focus sa subject."
