JULIAN Ongpin, scion of a businessman and former government official, was indicted today by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in connection with possession of illegal drugs.
He was also declared “person of interest” in the matter of the death of renowned Fil-Am artist Bree Jonson, who was found dead in a room in a La Union resort due to an apparent suicide last September 22.
Ongpin’s indictment was made on the basis of a complaint by the Philippine National Police (PNP) in relation to the 12 grams of cocaine found in a room he shared with Jonson .
The case against Ongpin will be filed with the Regional Trial Court in San Fernando, La Union, says the DOJ, who also stated that the offense is non-bailable.
