Former Nueva Ecija Vice Gov. Edward Thomas Joson said that his family’s name had been dragged unnecessarily into a road rage incident in Metro Manila, which involved “distant relatives.”
Joson was referring to brothers Christian and Angelo Joson, who fled after allegedly beating up a man inside Ayala Alabang Village in Muntinlupa City on Thursday night.
The siblings have been charged with frustrated murder and serious physical injuries over the mauling of Karlo Alfonso Santiago.
Joson said on Sunday that the suspects could be “distant relatives from Bataan.”
“They do not own a house or any other property in Nueva Ecija,” he told the Inquirer.
Joson said it was up to the two men to explain their actions, adding that their name was “being dragged into something [the clan] has nothing to do [with].”–Armand Galang, Inquirer Central Luzon
