Doubts over Filipina maid's death

Manila - An initial examination of the exhumed body of a maid said by Singaporean authorities to have been strangled by a fellow Filipina maid casts doubt on the cause of death. A senior forensic expert from the National Bureau of Investigation, Maximo Reyes, said "our findings will be different from that of the Singaporeans". Flor Contemplacion, who confessed to the murder of Delia Maga and a child in her charge, was hanged in Singapore on 17 March, triggering widespread protests in the Philippines.
