MARY JANE VELOSO SPARED FROM DEATH

Mary Jane Veloso has been spared from death as eight drug-trafficking convicts from several countries were executed by an Indonesian firing squad shortly after midnight on Wednesday.

There is yet no report on why Veloso of the Philippines  who was on death row with them was unexpectedly spared at the last minute.

Earlier, Jakarta rejected last-ditch pleas from around the world for clemency to be granted the drug traffickers from Nigeria, Australia, Brazil and Indonesia, ordering their mass execution to proceed within hours.

A spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office said the execution of Veloso, a mother of two who was arrested in 2010 after she arrived in Indonesia with 2.6 kg of heroin hidden in her suitcase, had been delayed.
