We are calling on the protection of Mary Jane Veloso, a 30 year old Filipino who is currently sitting in Indonesia’s death row scheduled to be executed by firing squad on Monday April 27 (April 28 in Indonesia). A victim of human trafficking, Mary Jane was coerced to fly to Indonesia by drug syndicates, not knowing that there was heroin in her bag. She has been in Indonesian jail for five years, with little support from the Philippine government or the Philippine Embassy. With just days before her scheduled execution, supporters and advocates rally to appeal the Indonesian president to save her life.
