Paolo Duterte refuses to show tattoo during Senate hearing


“No way.”

This was how Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte responded when Senator Antonio Trillanes IV asked him to show his tattoo which the senator said could prove the vice mayor’s“Triad membership.”

The presidential son appeared before the Senate on Thursday during the probe on the alleged corruption activities in the Bureau of Customs (BOC).

Vice Mayor Duterte also said he would not answer allegations “based on hearsay,” which link him to the “tara system” and the smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of shabu from China.

“In compliance with the invitation of this honorable committee and as a gesture of respect to the Senate, I am formally appearing in today’s proceedings. Once and for all, I now have the time to deny any and all baseless allegations thrown against me,” Duterte said.

He said he attended the hearing for the Filipino people and his fellow Davaoeños
