MANILA, Philippines — The Nationwide Bureau of Investigation has summoned artwork patron Julian Ongpin in reference to its investigation of the loss of life of his girlfriend, visible artist Breanna “Bree” Jonson, Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra stated on Monday.

“Ongpin was subpoenaed by the NBI to look on Oct. 6 and provides his personal assertion [on the] loss of life of Bree Jonson,” Guevarra advised reporters.


Ongpin, the son of billionaire businessman Roberto Ongpin, has been tagged as an individual of curiosity within the controversial loss of life of Jonson, who was discovered unconscious on Sept. 18 inside the toilet of the hostel room they’d rented within the browsing city of San Juan, La Union province.

He advised police investigators that the painter had taken her personal life, a declare that Jonson’s household vehemently disputed.


Ongpin, 29, was launched from jail on Sept. 20 upon the native prosecutor’s order regardless of being charged with a nonbailable offense for possession of unlawful medicine. INQ
