Lay off Paolo and his tattoo — Sara

Sara Duterte Carpio

SURIGAO City, Surigao del Norte -- Hugpong ng Pagbabago chairman and founder Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte told critics to respect the privacy of his brother Paolo Duterte on the matter of his tattoo.

In an interview during the campaign rally here, Mayor Duterte said she too will not show her tattoo unless there is an order from the court.

Several members from the opposition is challenging Vice Mayor Pulong to show his tattoo at the back amid Senator Antonio Trillanes’ claim the tattoo is the symbol of an international drug syndicate and the presidential son is a member of the ring.

Also, in the first part of the video of a certain “Bikoy” he alleged that the tattoo of Pulong contains his account numbers where drug money is being deposited.

But Mayor Duterte said the only way for Pulong to show the tattoo is if there is a case filed against him.

“Sa akin kung ako  yan , of course not, kung ako  hindi ko papakita  ang tattoo ko.  I have a right to my privacy if there is a case about my tattoo then sinasabi ng judge na pakita mo tattoo mo that is the time na ipakita ko, voluntarily,” she said.

The HNP campaign manager also said she expects that the next subject of the video will be her husband Atty. Manases.

But she said she is not bothered because the video is all lies and fabricated.

“Kahit anong issue kaya naming sagutin, kasi hindi naman totoo ang binabato sa amin,” she added.

Mayor Duterte’s HNP has started its campaign caravan in CARAGA Region.

In Surigao del Norte, Rep. Robert Ace Barbers, together with his brother gubernatorial candidate Lyndon Barbers, hosted yesterday’s campaign.

The Barbers are members of the Nacionalista Party. Their local party Abante Surigao has forged an alliance with the HNP.

The HNP is supporting the candidacy of 13 senatorial bets including former MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino; reelectionists Sen. Sonny Angara, Cynthia Villar, JV Ejercito and Koko Pimentel; Maguindanao Rep. Dong Mangudadatu; Taguig City Rep. Pia Cayetano; Ilocos Gov. Imee Marcos; Bong Go; former police chief Bato dela Rosa; former journalist Jiggy Manicad and former Sens. Ramon Bong  Revilla and Jinggoy Estrada.
