Pacquiao Appeals Indonesian Leader: Save Mary Jane (video)

Congressman Manny Pacquiao is appealing to the Indonesian President Joko Widodo for the clemency of a 30-year-old single mother set to be executed in Indonesia by firing squad after being found of -heroin- with 2.6 kilograms on her luggage.

According to the report, Veloso is a victim of human -trafficking-, and does not deserve the -death- penalty.

Pacquiao stated:

“His Excellency, President Joko Widodo, I am Manny Pacquiao. 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 life from execution.”

“Mr President, on May 2nd, I’ll 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.”
