Mary Jane’s sister, Marites, confirms Widodo called for a meeting around 2:30pm; after reports said that Christine Pasadilla alias Kristina Sergio, surrendered to the Nueva Ecija Police Provincial Office.

“Ii-inform po kami bago ang execution kung matutuloy kasi pupunta po kami sa isla. Doon po namin aabangan ang bangkay ni Mary Jane.”

However, the Philippine government has reached a dead end in its efforts to spare Veloso’s life, noting that all legal and diplomatic options were raised yet failed to save her from execution.

Earlier, President Aquino made last-ditch effort to save Veloso by suggesting to the Indonesian government to turn her as a witness in identifying illegal drug syndicates.
