Dane Involved In Probe Of His Filipina Girlfriend’s Death In Singapore

A report from the Singaporean police
said Janeth Calamohoy, a 25-year-old resident of this town, died from
“multiple injuries” after jumping from the fifth floor of a
condominium where she and her live-in partner Lars Hyldgaard
Kristensen stayed.Calamohoy was buried on September 14
amid calls from her closest kin for the government to speed up the
investigation of her death.

Her younger sister, Selfa, in an
interview yesterday said she is “determined to pursue the
investigation”.

“We are convinced that my sister did
not commit suicide as reported,” she stressed, adding, “the
injuries to which my sister succumbed to clearly indicate that there
was something wrong.”

She said there were tell-tale signs on
her sister’s face aside from the fracture on her skull, in the back
of her head.

According to her, if her sister “really
jumped from the fifth floor of the building where she lived with her
live-in partner, she must have hit the pavement face down.”

“The broken skull in the back of her
head indicates that my sister did not hit the pavement face down,”
she said.

An autopsy was conducted on the remains
in Zamboanga City after it arrived from the Ninoy Aquino
International Airport last September 7. The results of the autopsy
were not yet available. The younger Calamohoy is set to leave
for Singapore this week with the help of a friend in order to
coordinate with Singaporean authorities and also to meet with
Janeth’s live-in partner, Danish national Lars Hyldgaard
Kristensen.

“It is important for me and my family
to know the details of what happened to my sister before she died,”
she explained.

The Overseas Workers Welfare
Administration (OWWA) had already asked the Philippine Embassy in
Singapore to ask the host government to shed light on the case.

“Despite the fact that she is not an
OFW, we are still obliged to help ferret out the truth because she is
a Filipino,” she added.

The local government of Alicia, through
a council resolution, is also “asking the DFA to speed up the
investigation.”
