Ryan currently hosts the daily variety show “It’s Showtime.” In a press statement released by his legal counsel Atty. Joji Alonso, their party has yet to receive the order from the BIR.

“We have yet to receive summons from the DOJ on the alleged tax evasion charges. Ryan Bang intends to comply with all obligations due the government, if any. He will never knowingly and deliberately violate any law in this country,” Atty. Jojo said.
