MANILA, Philippines — Julian Ongpin, son of billionaire Roberto Ongpin, appeared before the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) yesterday to shed light on the death of visual artist Bree Jonson.

NBI spokesman Ferdinand Lavin thanked Ongpin, 29, for cooperating in the probe into the death of Jonson, who was found unconscious at a resort in San Juan, La Union on Sept. 18.

Ongpin was accompanied by his lawyers when he showed up at the NBI death investigation division.

“We thank him for honoring the subpoena issued by the NBI,” Lavin said.

Ongpin was also summoned by the NBI Cordillera regional office in Baguio on Monday, according to NBI special projects team head Emeterio Dongallo.

Last week, Ongpin appeared before the Department of Justice, which is conducting a premilinary hearing on the drug complaint filed against him.

Ongpin was the last person seen with Jonson before she was found dead.
