Ramona no longer in Turkey, says NBI

MANILA, Philippines—The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has received information that Ma. Ramona “Mara” Bautista, one of the two younger siblings of Ramgen Bautista suspected of plotting his October 28 murder, is not in Turkey.

NBI Interpol chief and lawyer Claro de Castro Jr. confirmed, on Tuesday, the receipt of the information from the Interpol Ankara that Bautista arrived in Turkey at 10:34 a.m. of November 5 but left the country later that day at around 4:51 pm.

“We still have to get information from our counterpart in Turkey as to her destination,” De Castro told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.


Apart from the information on Bautista’s arrival in and subsequent flight out of Turkey, the NBI also confirmed her residence at Pinartepe, Naalesi, in Istanbul.


Previously, Bautista flew out of the country on November 4 at around 8:40 p.m. aboard Cathay Pacific flight CX902 to Hong Kong and took the connecting Turkish Airline flight 071 bound for Istanbul.

Engin Tuna Bulbuloglu, Bautista’s Turkish husband, had allegedly ordered her to fly to Istanbul a day after the killing of her brother at the BF Homes Subdivision in Parañaque City and had told a local paper in Turkey, “Nothing will come out of this incident. Everything is merely made up of allegations,” after pronouncing they were untouchable in the country.

At least one witness and two suspects tagged Ramona and her 18-year-old brother RJ as the masterminds of the killing allegedly over a financial dispute among siblings.

De Castro told the Inquirer that apart from the request to the Ankara Interpol, Bautista’s inclusion in the blue notice list would enable the government to tap the assistance of all 188 Interpol-member countries to determine her destination and locate her.
