Convicted US Marine Face Possible Release

In the Philippines today, a US military personnel Lance Corporal Daniel Smith was a few years ago, convicted of raping a Filipina. After serving a few hundred days in a specially built detention facility, he is facing the possibility of release. That should be good for men clad in safety equipment. In the US embassy compound where Corporal Daniel Smith is being detained, a construction activity is ongoing in order to expand one of the largest US government diplomatic operations outside of the mainland.

Daniel Smith's accuser is reported to have executed a sworn statement virtually clearing the GI of the charges that she, not so long ago, filed against him.
