Just about the day before Mary Jane Veloso will be executed, our beloved Filipino Champ Manny Pacquiao made an appeal through national television to the Indonesian President Joko Widodo to save Veloso's life who is on death row for drug trafficking.

For Mary Jane Veloso's life Pacquiao made an appeal

Pacquiao's said on his interview all the way from Los Angeles, Califonia via GMA 7,
“On behalf of my countryman, Mary Jane Veloso, and the entire Filipino people, I am begging and knocking on your kind heart that your excellency will grant executive clemency to her by sparing her life and saving her from execution,” and added, “Mr. President, on May 2nd, I will [be] fighting in Las Vegas, Nevada against Floyd Mayweather. It is considered the fight of the century. It will be a great morale booster if in my own little way I can save a life. I am dedicating this fight to my country and the entire Asian people, to which the Philippines and Indonesia belong. Thank you Mr. President.”
Pacquiao then urge everyone else to pray for Veloso, “Sa ating mga kababayan, ipag pray natin si Mary Jane Veloso. Ipag-pray natin.”
