CBCP on Mary Jane: Storm heaven with prayers


The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) urged the Indonesian government not to execute Mary Jane Veloso, a 30-year-old Filipino on Indonesia’s death row. The CBCP also appealed for prayers for Veloso, whom her lawyers said is wrongly accused of attempting to smuggle 2.6 kilograms of heroin into Indonesia.
