0 Three Filipino drug mules executed in China

The three Filipino drug couriers on China death row were put to death, Vice Pres. Jejomar Binay confirms.

Sally Villanueva, 32, Ramon Credo, 42, and Elizabeth Batain, 38 were executed by lethal injection.

In 2009, the three were convicted of drug trafficking and were sentenced by the People's Republic of China.

The execution was set to be carried out by the Chinese government last February 20 and 21 but was postponed following Binay's trip to Beijing on February 18 to ask for clemency.

I say no to death penalty but also a big no to illegal drugs and illegal drug trade. I hope lessons are now learned. I extend my sincerest sympathies to the bereaved families.
