THE Department of Justice (DOJ) said it has already concluded its investigation and submitted the drug complaint against Ongpin, son of businessman Roberto Ongpin, for resolution since no new issues were raised by Ongpin and the police.
This development into the drug complaint filed against Julian Ongpin, the person of interest in the death of artist Bree Jonson, was welcomed by the Philippine National Police (PNP).
“For now, let’s just wait for the decision on the complaint filed against Julian Ongpin. We trust that the case filed against him will be fair and correct,” said PNP Chief, Police General Guillermo Eleazar.
“We also assure the public that the PNP will continuously cooperate with the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) in the investigation into the death of Bree Jonson because we also would like to know the truth on this case,” he added.
The drug complaint against Ongpin stemmed after authorities recovered 12.6 grams of cocaine inside the room he had shared with Jonson at a beach resort in La Union.
It was the same room where Jonson was found dead on September 18. The artist was laid to rest in Davao City last week.
Investigation is ongoing into the incident. The NBI conducted a separate autopsy on Jonson’s body to determine the cause of her death.
