Palace condoles with family of executed Pinay helper in Kuwait
Malacañang on Wednesday condoled with the family of overseas Filipino worker Jakatia Pawa who was executed in Kuwait.
Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella in a statement said that the Philippine government provided Pawa all the assistance to stop her execution.
"It is with sadness that we confirm the execution of Jakatia Pawa this afternoon (Philippine time)," he said.
"The Philippine government has provided the late Pawa all the assistance necessary to ensure all her legal rights are respected and all legal procedures are followed. Government likewise exerted all efforts to preserve her life, including diplomatic means and appeals for compassion. Execution, however, could no longer be forestalled under Kuwaiti laws," he added.
Abella added that the Department of Foreign Affairs is in touch with Pawa's family for the assistance.
"The Department of Foreign Affairs is now closely coordinating with Ms. Pawa’s family and continues to facilitate assistance," he said.
"We pray for her and her bereaved family," he added. —ALG, GMA News
