The grieving mother of artist Bree Jonson, Sally, is begging Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra to put out an immigration lookout and hold departure order against the son of bilyonaryo Roberto V. Ongpin, Julian.
“I would like to emphasize this urgency kasi baka si Julian ay nakalabas na ng bansa,” said Sally in an interview with ANC.
Bree was found dead on September 18 inside a room she shared with her alleged boyfriend, Julian, at the Flotsam and Jetsam hostel in San Juan, La Union.
Julian, Ongpin’s son with an Australian, was arrested on September 19 for drug charges as cocaine was found inside their room. But Julian was reportedly released by the La Union police even though possession of drugs was non-bailable.
Bree’s autopsy was conducted only Monday night.
“I’m reaching out to you sir, Secretary Menardo [Guevarra]. I sent an email to DOJ frontline asking for an immigration lookout bulletin order because of Julian Ongpin’s possible involvement in the death of my daughter,” said Sally.
Even though she has yet to go to La Union to see her daughter’s body after arriving from Canada on September 20, Sally said she was told that Julian was the last person seen with Bree. Only her sister and ex-husband are attending to Bree’s case in La Union.
“May mga witnesses na employees ng resort… Yung apat na employees na ‘yun gave their testimonies to the presinto which I asked my sister to get a copy of it. I also have a request for the DOJ frontline for a hold departure request for Julian for drug possession,” said Sally.
