Duterte may visit Mary Jane Veloso in Indonesia –Palace
If given the opportunity, President Rodrigo Duterte would visit Mary Jane Veloso in Indonesia, where she was convicted and sentenced to death for drug trafficking, Malacañang said Thursday.
A report on QRT quoted presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella of saying that the meeting may happen during Duterte's working visit to Indonesia this month.
Duterte is set to fly to Indonesia on September 8 to 9 after he attends the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and related Summits in Laos.
In a speech before OFWs at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Wednesday, the President said he's "praying" that he could "do something for" Veloso.
Veloso's execution via firing squad was put on hold at the last minute in April last year to allow her to testify against the recruiters who she said duped her into carrying 2.6 kilograms of heroin to Indonesia in 2010. —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
