Where should this case be tried?

Pres. Manuel L. Quezon
Here's a case from the Philippines: a Navy captain on the verge of retirement is under charges for the killing of a police officer more than 16 years ago. GMA News reports:
The Navy has filed a Motion for Custody for [Vicente Marcelo] Lampas after the Manila court ordered his transfer to the Manila City jail.
[Naval Base Cavite commander Col. Aaron] Arevalo said the motion was based on Executive Order No. 106 that directs military commanders to take custody of subordinate officers or enlisted personnel facing violation of penal laws.
The Manila court will tackle the Navy's motion on Sept. 1.
Executive Order 106 was issued by Pres. Manuel L. Quezon in 1937.
