There is no assurance yet that Mary Jane Veloso is saved from being persecuted.

The OFW was sentenced to death by the Indonesian court after being found guilty of smuggling illegal drugs.

Based on OFW Partylist Rep. John Bertiz’ statement, the Court of Appeals junked the motion to acquire a statement from Veloso inside her jail cell in Indonesia.

In line with this, Bertiz is asking the Department of Foreign Affairs to focus on other legal remedy in order to save the life of Mary Jane.

Meanwhile, according to DFA Asst. Sec. Charles Jose, they are still hoping that the decision of the Court of Appeals to dismiss their appeal to get a deposition from Veloso that will strengthen their case against Ma. Christina Sergio and Julius Lacanilao.  The two are allegedly responsible in bringing Veloso to Indonesia with the illegal drugs inside her baggage.
