Filipina theft suspect may also face burglary charge

10 January 2020

A Filipina who is facing three counts of theft in Eastern Court may also be charged with burglary, according to prosecutors.

The statement was made as Mary Joy Panaguiton, who has been in police custody since late November, appeared before Magistrate Veronica Heung today, Jan. 10.

Magistrate Heung granted the prosecutor’s request for a three-week adjournment of the case to allow police to further investigate the new information.

Heung set Panaguiton’s next hearing on Jan 31 and ordered her remanded in custody after her counsel said she had no bail application.

No other details of the case, including the defendant’s visa status, were mentioned in court. - VBL
