Polong continues retreat into shadows

Inquirer Libre - Davao - - NEWS FEATURE -

DAVAO CITY —President Duterte’s eldest child continued his retreat into private life, taking down a Facebook account that sources said belonged to Paolo Duterte the vice mayor, not Paolo Duterte the private person.

Following his resignation, Paolo kept himself scarce, feeding continued speculation about the real reasons he quit as vice mayor despite him earlier saying that he was giving up public office out of “delicadeza” after he was linked to a “shabu” (crystal meth) smuggling case and a public spat with his daughter, Isabelle.

Paolo’s social media presence was now limited to an Instagram account, PD375, but it was set to private, which meant access was allowed only for verified followers.
