DOJ gave an update about the identities of men in room 2207.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently gave an update about the identities of the men in room 2207 of the City Grand Hotel in Makati.
This, as the said room was the room where Christine Dacera and her friends joined a New Year’s party before she was found dead.
Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra confirmed to CNN Philippines that the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) had identified the men in room 2207 of the said hotel.
However, Guevarra told CNN Philippines that he won’t reveal their names until they’re summoned.
The National Bureau of Investigation was conducting its own investigation as questions hound the cause of Christine’s death.

Christine’s family, and no less than Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Debold Sinas, claimed that she was raped and that may have led to her death.
This, however, was unsupported by official medico-legal findings pointing to an aneurysm as the cause of Christine’s death.
The Department of Justice had issued the probe order to the NBI because the “initial investigation by the Makati police was not thorough enough”.
Aside from the NBI, the National Capital Region Office had also formed a Special Investigation Task Group in order to obtain additional evidence.
According to NCRPO Spokesperson PLtCol Jenny Tecson, they’re facing a huge challenge as Christine’s body was embalmed before the autopsy.
According to her, the embalming could have erased or contaminated potential evidence. However, the NCRPO explained that embalming a body before autopsy was supposedly a standard procedure under COVID-19 protocols.
