Deaths of Three Filipinos for Drug Trafficking: 'Vivid Lesson'

The death of Ramon Credo, Sally Ordinario-Villanueva, and Elizabeth Batain this morning (March 30) through lethal injections is "a vivid lesson" among Filipinos.

The death execution for the trio is a promulgation of sentence for a crime of drug trafficking they'd violated and the courts of the People's Republic of China found them guilty.

Ramon Credo, 42 years old, was convicted for smuggling 4,113 grams of heroin on 28 December 2008, in Xiamen; Sally Ordinario-Villanueva,32 years old, was convicted for smuggling 4,110 grams of heroin on 24 December 2008, in Xiamen; and Sally Batain, 38 years old, was convicted for smuggling 6,800 grams of heroin on 24 May 2008, in Shenzhen.

The trio's death is "a vivid lesson in the tragic toll the drug trade takes on entire families," Philippine deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte read from a statement.

No more "chain of victimization" of drug pushing for the Philippine government has ensured that the government and the citizenry will work together to be vigilant and mutually supporting Filipinos so as not to be used as "sacrificial pawns" by drug pushers at home or abroad, she added.

She also said, that the Philippine government has done her part to stop the executions of the three Filipinos. (Thus the executions were rescheduled from February 20 and 21 to today, March 30.)

The three: credo, villanueva, and Batain are not aware of their executions that have been set Wednesday, March 30. They will only be informed on the day of their executions. But earlier that they knew that their executions last February 20and 21 were suspended by the Supreme People's Court of China.

Sad to note that there are still 74 more Filipinos await their death promulgation in China. But PH vice president Binay is hopeful that those sentenced Filipinos "can still evade death" when they could manifest for themselves "remorse for thecrimes" and "good behavior.

Department of Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affairs (OUMWA) Esteban Conejos assured that there remains a ray of hope for them.

But for the three it is a fact as pointed out by DFA Spokesperson Ed Malaya that "the sentence is a finality." He said The President has written three times, there have been back channeling and there really isn't much left for them to do. Even vice president Jejomar Binay's letter of appeal to Chinese government that the guilty Filipinos are willing to help pin down the masterminds of drug smuggling.

Goodbye Ramon! Goodbye Sally! Goodbye Elizabeth!


  1. I feel so sorrry for them I know that they have no choice, may God be with them

  2. wow! i can't imagine being a prisoner in other country and waiting for my death sentence. but they did something wrong at least chinese government knows how to follow gov. laws rather than in philippines that cannot change and lessen crimes still. xx

  3. Oh my. I haven't heard about this news until today, I've stumbled on this post. Shocked, yes I am. :(

  4. this story truly is an eye opener and people should think million times before doing something out of nothing.

  5. Honestly, sir Gil, I really don't know what to say about this news. It has bothered me that people are being executed because of being drug mules and I don't want it to happen to any of my family members. But I think justice should also be served. I just don't think that the penalty of death is commensurate with the crime.

  6. If only our government had enough jobs that can provide a decent meal to their respective families, this shouldn't had happened.

    On the other side, we should be very very careful in choosing our means to earn for our families.

  7. This is truly a sad news, especially to their families. But I think these people already knew the consequences of their actions. It's just devastating to hear that things have to end this way.

  8. The victim here is not really the three Filipinos, but their respective families. Kawasaki ang mga pamilya nila na di mn Lang alam mga ginagwa nila...

  9. What we are going to be doing is called - A  "domain masking".
