The family of a convicted drug mule in China sought the nation’s prayers but also requested privacy for the sake of their ailing mother.
The Department of Foreign Affairs has been assisting the family in their travel to Guangxi province.
The execution of the drug trafficker will take place in China and will push through on December 8.
The sisters of the convicted Filipino were deeply thankful to the Catholic Bishop’s Conference of the Philippines and to those who were offering continued prayers for their brother.
The Church prayed for divine intervention that the Chinese government would grant the Aquino administration’s request for commutation.
The 35-year-old Filipino convict was caught trying to bring 1.5 kilos of heroin into China.
Early this year, three Filipinos were convicted of drug trafficking and were executed in China like Sally Villanueva, Ramon Credo and Elizabeth Betain.
