A 20-year old bargirl was invited for questioning by the Danish cops at the local police headquarters here after she was implicated in the multimillion robbery in Denmark two years ago.
Mariana Jugar, of Dona Paz st., Purok 5, Barangay Pulung Maragul here underwent intensive questioning from Danish detectives and International Police during investigation held at the Angeles City Police Office (ACPO) over the weekend.
Jugar, police sources said was formerly the live-in partner of Denmark most wanted man, Lukas Hasselgren, who is facing aggravated and armed robbery. The Denmark government provided her a lawyer during the interrogation.
Hasselgren, police records showed was arrested by a team of Interpol sometime on Sept this year in Manila for the same offense. He was extradited back to Denmark on Oct 12.
Jugar admitted to investigators knowing Hasselgren as she live with him in Denmark for several months on 2008. But she said she has nothing to do with the activities of the suspect as she was just staying in an apartment where they rent and live as couple.
She said there were occasion where she was left alone in their rented apartment for three to four days.
All I know, Jugar said is that Hasselgren is working as a painter of building and other structures. She did not mentioned the exact place in Denmark where they stayed, when asked by investigators.
Before the investigation, delegates from Denmark led by Detective Inspector Finn Lasser, sought the help of the Interpol stationed in Camp Crame in Quezon City to locate Jugar in Angeles City.
Interpol instead turned the Swedish detectives to ACPO Detective Bureau.
Hasselgren, police said had been tagged by the Danish cops as leader of 15-man bigtime robbery group responsible in the break-in of a lending firm in Denmark. The group fled with huge amount of cash equivalent to P400 million cash from the establishment.
The Danish court is eyeing Jugar as witness against Hasselgren, local police here said.
Jugar said she met Hasselgren while she is working in a bar along Fields Avenue. She said they go on dating and lived as husband and wife.
Danish detectives told local authorities that Denmark robbery as well-planned as police station installed obstacles and blocked the road with garbage trucks to prevent responding cops to go near the suspects.
