Statement of Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., on the Execution of the Convicted Filipino Drug Mule in China

8 December 2011

We are deeply saddened by the news of yet another Filipino executed in China for drug trafficking following the death penalty in China against persons convicted of such crimes. Our prayers go out for the family of the just executed Filipino. We must however respect their laws and hope this serves as deterrent to others that may be lured into criminal activities whether here or abroad. Our drug enforcers must pursue the recruiter and others involved in the operation and bring them to justice.
