Jennifer Laude was killed by US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton

Those who knew her well called her “Ganda”  beautiful.

But her beauty was not only skin-deep. It’s more than just Jennifer’s good looks that her loved ones remember and cherish.

Her personality charmed not just her friends and family, but also her boyfriend of two years. Jennifer met her German boyfriend online, and they had planned to get married in Thailand. Their partnership was just short of the formal ceremonies; the couple already had engagement rings.

 

U.S. Marine convicted of killing a transgender Filipina has been an absolute pardon to US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton by the PRRD. He was jailed for the death of transgender Jennifer Laude.

It was later reported that he must remain in prison while her family and the government appeal a Philippine court order allowing his early release for good behaviour, authorities said Thursday.

But today Joseph Scott was granted a pardon by the PRRD.

 

A regional court northwest of Manila ruled Lance Cpl. Joseph Scott Pemberton should be released early from his six-to-10-year sentence for killing Jennifer Laude. Her family immediately protested the Tuesday decision.

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque, who once legally represented Laude’s relatives, said officials could not release Pemberton until the her family’s appeal is heard. The government is preparing a separate appeal, he said.

The regional court ruling rekindled protests in the country that U.S. military members get special treatment under the allies’ Visiting Forces Agreement, which allows temporary deployments of U.S. forces in the country for large-scale combat exercises.
