No deal! This was the curt reply of presidential son Paolo Duterte to the lawyer of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV who wanted a mediation on the libel cases the young Duterte filed against the senator.
Weeks ago, Paolo revealed that Trillanes was asking him what he wants for him to withdraw the libel case.
“Si Trillanes ug abugado niya makig-mediate na unsa daw ako gusto ana ko NO DEAL,” Paolo Duterte revealed.
The former Davao City vice mayor who is now running for Congress said that he is fed up with all the unfounded accusations hurled against him that he would now start filing cases against anyone who defames him.
“Sukad karon bisan kinsa mu-akusa sa akoa nga walay ebidensya, ang korte na mudesisyon nila. Kapoy na na sila,” he said.
Paolo and brother-in-law Manases Carpio’s charges against Trillanes stemmed off from the senator’s radio interview in Cebu.
In the interview, Trillanes reportedly accused the younger Duterte of corruption and extortion involving Uber and other companies regulated by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, Road Board and Department of Public Works and Highways.
