The subpoena commands Francis Lee, owner of F Cafe & Bar, to appear in court at 10 am on January 4, 2023, to produce a copy of the CCTV footage showing the altercation.

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) also launched an investigation against Butch Jalosjos Soreno et al. for child abuse and attempted homicide charges.

Garcia emphasized that “there is no place for abuse and arrogance here in the island of Cebu,” dubbing the incident as “shameful and disgraceful acts.” BKM/ Expat Media
