De Lima accuses of gross immorality regarding her romantic affair with Ronnie Dayan, her former driver and bodyguard who also alleged involvement in illegal drug trade inside New Bilibid Prison.

"Measured against the definition of gross immorality, we find Senator De Lima's actions grossly immoral. Her actions were so corrupt as to approximate a criminal act, for she has a relationship with a married man, who in all appearances, was married to another and with whom he has a family. Her actions were also unprincipled and reprehensible to the highest degree," the complaint read.

"All these taken together leads to the inescapable conclusion that respondent (De Lima) was grossly imprudent in managing her personal affairs. The fact remains that her relationship with Ronnie Dayan, a married man, is grossly immoral. Worse, she never denied such relationship," it added.
"We find that Senator De Lima violated Canon 7 and Rule 7.03 of the Code of Professional Responsibility, as her behavior demeaned the dignity of and discredited the legal profession. She simply failed in her duty as a lawyer to adhere unwavering to the highest standards of morality," the complaint read.
"Senator De Lima used her power and moral ascendancy to portray the role of Whitney Houston in the movie 'The Bodyguard.' Unfortunately, the closest that she can relate to Whitney Houston is the death of her legal profession through illegal drugs."

But Leila de Lima have always denied the allegation against her, and accused the government of mistaken evidence against her.
