When asked about the case of convicted drug mule Mary Jane Veloso, President Rodrigo Duterte has remained silent.

However, Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. Said that Indonesia has agreed to put the Filipina out of the execution schedule indefinitely.

President Duterte is currently in Indonesia for a 24-hour working visit to the country’s President, Joko Widodo.

Duterte’s mission is to improve ties with the country and to appeal for the salvation of Veloso.

Veloso wasfound guilty of smuggling drugs in the foreign country and was on death row. She was however, spared from a firing squad at the 11th hour as the Bali Nine pair and six others were killed.

Hours before her execution, Widodo delayed her killing with a temporary reprieve since she won the sympathy of her countrymen who voiced out for her life.
