Migrante Int’l explains why Mary Jane got last minute reprieve

The organization that led the worldwide campaign to save the life of Mary Jane Veloso explains how the Filipina on death row got a last minute reprieve from the Indonesian government last night.

Veloso was the only one spared in Indonesia’s mass execution of one local and eight foreigners convicted of drug possession and trafficking. The executions happened at around midnight at a prison island in Indonesia.

In this video, Migrante International secretary general Sol Pillas gives credit to Veloso’s private Filipino lawyers, Indonesian attorneys, the international migrant community, the Filipino people and even boxing great Manny Pacquiao for the reprieve.
