Marc Susselbeck climbed the perimeter fence of Camp Aguinaldo and forcibly shoved a guard, said Lt Col Harold Cabunoc, spokesman for the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

A complaint would be filed with the German embassy and the Philippine Bureau of Immigration, the military said in a statement.

"We also like to ascertain through the German embassy the true identity and pertinent background information" of the individual, "whose misbehaviour caught the attention of Philippine authorities."

The man and the victim's sister shouted their demand to see the accused after entering the premises, while other family members gathered outside the fence.

US marine Joseph Pemberton is suspected of killing Filipino transgender Jeffrey "Jennifer" Laude, found dead in a hotel in Olongapo City on Oct 11.

Pemberton was transferred to the camp from a US navy ship early Wednesday, as US military officials said he remained under US custody in line with the visiting forces' agreement signed with Manila.
