Filipino charged with murder

Posted on: Feb 04, 2008

Update on yesterday's post on Filipino found dead in Whampoa flat

Mark Jontongco Laguerta, 29 and Filipino, is accused of causing the death of unemployed Bernard Montemayor Alojado, 27, in a HDB flat at Jalan Tenteram in Whampoa area.

Laguerta and his wife, together with Alojado and his wife, were sharing the five-room flat with a woman. All the women are nurses. The suspect was remanded at Central police division for investigation until his next apperance on Feb 11.

Laguerta works in a shop at Changi airport. Meanwhile, the victim was staying in Singapore on a social visit pass or most likely tourist visa, while looking for work.

Murder is a capital offense in Singapore. Which means, the suspect could face death sentence if convicted. Each execution is carried out by hanging at Changi Prison at dawn on a Friday. This is the latest case of a Filipino in Singapore facing a possible death sentence for allegedly killing a fellow Filipino.

  7. If some men died and others did not, death would indeed be a most mortifying evil.
    - Jean De La Bruyere

    If thou expect death as a friend, prepare to entertain it; if thou expect death as an enemy, prepare to overcome it; death has no advantage, except when it comes as a stranger.
    - Francis Quarles

  12. Nagpapaniwala kayo dyan. Eh ginagamit lang kayong lahat nyan eh! Nagkamali sila (Phil Embassy)sa paglabas ng pangalan ngayon tahimik lang sila sa pgkakamali nila. Ayan tuloy napilitan sila makipag out-of-court settlement! Kaninong pera ginamit nila? Eh di sa pondo ng Embassy na galing sa taxpayers!

  14. Eto ang nakuha kong balita tungkol dyan, si Laguerte at un biktima ay nagshashare ng flat right? w/ their wives. but itong si biktima dumalaw lang yan dito sa SG. Nagyayaan ata ng inuman un dalawa (laguerte n victim) pagkatapos malasing nadulas ata si laguerte at nasabi nyang may nangyari sa kanila nun wife ni victim (they have a secret sexual relationship) Edi itong si victim ay cguro nagalit? and nakipag rumbol aun cguro napatay ni laguerte un biktima or accidentally sa sobrang pagwawala ng biktima e sya ai na untog somewhere or whatever. Anyway im not sure how reliable my source is but my source knows some family of laguerte

  21. Thanks for all the comments. Honestly, we did not expect to receive this savory exchange of words. So far, there is no further news (media) about the case. Therefore, it's just wise to leave the story as it is.

    Filipinos in Singapore were actually saddened by the story because fellow Filipinos were involved. Hope the case has been settled for the sake of their families.

  22. I am from the Philippine Embassy and I believe that we have already made an out-of-court settlement with one of the concerned party in this case for our mistake in releasing a certain information.

    We express our apologies for the misinformation we have relayed and we would appreciate it if we would all refrain from divulging the details of those settlements as we have mutually agreed and signed on our settlement documents. Thank you.

  24. Yes, from what I've heard from reliable sources. One of the settlements went for SG$24,000! And there's one more pending case filed against them! Of course they will deny all of this and we can expect that becuase they want to cover their ass! Gawaing pinoy ba!

    See, what stupidity our government brings? Kahit sa ibang bansa nagkakalat government officials natin. Nakakahiya!

  25. Hey Shiels, I will "get" a life for a life taken. I sincerely hope that you will one day feel the way I feel by going through the same way of losing one from your family.

    Time will never heal my loss. Years will pass but I assure everyone that I will have my time with someone dear to your friend. Could be his son, his wife, his dad or mom. The longer it takes the more excited it makes me feel.

    As I have said to you Mark, I will come for what you owe at a time when everything in your life is worth living.
