Sinagot ni Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Z. Duterte ang hamon ni Sen. Antonio F. Trillanes IV na magpa-drug test at lumabas na negative siya sa pitong uri ng bawal na gamot, kasama na ang shabu, cocaine, at heroin.
“I have submitted myself to yet another drug test, this time more comprehensive than the first test administered by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency,” sinabi ng anak ni Pa-ngulong Duterte sa isang pahayag na inilabas ng City Information Office.
Ayon sa Vice Mayor, ang drug test ay “response to the challenge made by Sen. Antonio F. Trillanes who said I was a drug user.”
“I have accepted his challenge not to dignify him, but to clear my name and the name of my family,” sinabi ni Paolo.
“His imputations that I was a drug addict were based entirely on a fabricated story by a man whose imagination is as twisted as the senator’s.”
