“It has come to my attention that my son, Omar Duterte, went to SNR Davao, and he did not line up to conduct the stringent screening requirements of the establishment,” he said.

This after a netizen expressed her rant on Facebook while sharing the official statement of Mayor Sara Z. Duterte, that the congressman’s son allegedly went inside the store without falling in line.

“It is with humility that I apologize for the behavior of Omar and his impertinence shall be dealt with accordingly,” the presidential son said.

Duterte said the incident was unfortunate given the health emergency that the people are facing these days – while most of them are preoccupied with efforts to protect every Dabawenyo, especially the frontliners and government responders and volunteers.

Meanwhile, he said the alleged misconduct of the security team accompanying Omar was a matter being investigated by the Presidential Security Group (PSG).
