Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte said that he accepts the challenge of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for him to undergo a comprehensive drug test.
In a recent Senate probe, Senator Trillanes felt he was accused by the presidential son of using cocaine and that he dares him to name the senator in public.
In a statement released by the City Information Office, Duterte expanded his challenge and said all senators should undergo a comprehensive drug test “considering that most of public servants have already been doing it in support of the anti-illegal drugs campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte.”
“Many of them, if not all, may have submitted themselves to a simple drug test before, but I encourage them to undergo the more precise examinations available in Metro Manila that would not just detect illegal drugs in urine or blood but even in hair follicles," Duterte said.
Vice Mayor Duterte also said that his information about an unnamed senator came from a friend who was apparently also a friend of the senator who told him about the vice of the said senator.
Duterte, however, refused to divulge the identity of the senator pending the evidence he will be able to gather.
Duterte, along with Davao city councilors, was just recently tested for drug use by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.
All of those who were tested came out negative.
