MANILA, Philippines - A dentist named Gian Paolo Duterte who was included in a GMA news report last April 29, 2016, about Sen. Trillanes' allegations on presidential candidate Rodrigo Dutertes’ illegally possessed properties, posted in his Facebook account an explanation that he is not in any way related to Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
Dr. Gian Paolo D. Duterte, DDM, posted in his Facebook account the following statement:
It is unfortunate that my name has been publicly mentioned in the GMA7 news report last April 29, 2016, of which Senator Trillanes accused Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and his family of possessing illegally amassed properties.
For the record, I am a practicing Pediatric Dentist for seven years based in Cagayan De Oro City. Through my profession, I was able to secure a loan from the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) to purchase the real estate property in Cagayan De Oro City, mentioned in the reports of GMA 7 and Senator Trillanes.
I’ve been doing private practice as a Dental Medicine professional and have never been a politician. I never sought any elected position in the past nor ran for public office. Furthermore, our roots come from Cebu and I’ve yet to establish the degree or any connection whatsoever on how the good mayor, Rodrigo Duterte, and I are directly related.
