Paolo still refuses to show tattoo

In the wake of a series of videos accusing former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte of being a member of a drug triad, the embattled son of President Rodrigo Duterte is again being asked to show his tattoo to disprove allegations by Senator Antonio Trillanes and Magdalo partymate Gary Alejano.
