Veloso’s mother Celia, who returned to the country the next morning after the reprieve, rebuked the Philippine government and criticized Aquino for supposedly grabbing credit for her daughter’s reprieve.
“Now that we have returned in the Philippines, I have plenty of things to account to the government. They said it was because of them why my daughter’s execution did not take place, that’s not true.” the Veloso matriarch declared in a press briefing upon arrival.
This was the same threat she made during the uncertainty of Mary Jane’s fate.
President Aquino denied the allegation that the government was lax, and in fact enumerated the steps taken in an attempt to save Mary Jane Veloso, stating the steps during his visit in Naga City in Cebu.
“We did what we could. We were not involved in the creation of the problem. You must remember she was arrested, if I am not mistaken, April of 2010,” Aquino said.
During 2010, Aquino was still a Senator.
He enumerated the government efforts to save Veloso such as the appeals to Indonesian foreign ministers, the attorney general and President Joko Widodo.
Aquino said the government also provided legal counsels to Veloso and brought her family to Indonesia.
Perhaps the Veloso family is being brainwashed by militants, and by every criticism being blurted, that might be very well the case.
The netizens that were usually critical of the President sided with the government this time, and they were unanimously critical of Veloso’s statement, the lack of gratitude and rebellious behavior.
FINISH THAT INGRATE OFF!
MIGRANTE, BAYAN MUNA, GABRIELA and all other NGOs, who allegledly helped, supported the Velosos spiritually, lawfully and financially look what have you done… you made this poor, ignorant woman a PERSONA NON GRATA just for your own vested interest. What a shame!!!!
Go ahead and enjoy being dogs of the militants and activists while they still need you. Your family will be left in the curb once you’re useless to them.
Execute Celia Veloso!
The mother is just arrogant… fell hook line and sinker to politicians… instead of thanking the President, that is what she’d say… now nobody’s siding with you anymore…
That’s what you get in return for idiot voters if you help them. INGRATUS. Influenced by communists. Resume the execution, along with the mother.
CONTINUE THE EXECUTION, INCLUDING THE MOTHER… UNLIKE DOGS THAT LICKS THE HANDS THAT FEEDS THEM, THE MOTHER IS LIKE A PIG THAT SHOULD BE SLAUGHTERED.
You (Celia) destroyed the sympathy of the people, you were swayed by people who didn’t like the government from the start, it wasn’t PNoy who carried the suitcase, it wasn’t him who instructed to bring the drugs, think about it.
YOU’RE SUCH A TURN OFF MOMMY (Celia) IS THAT HOW YOU RETURN THE FAVOR? REMEMBER THE FIGHT IS NOT YET OVER! Learn to respect. The mercy that enveloped the people, is now anger.
These people are so blinded with hatred and anger that they do not know how to be grateful anymore. Such a waste of time. Tsk!
I won’t have anything to do with ingrates! Leave them to Widodo’s mercy!
Who shouldered your family’s fare, Celia Veloso, to Indonesia? It was the government, right? Ingrate to the max!
Veloso family. UNGRATEFUL.
China, Binay and the militantes might have influenced her badly to destroy PNoy’s reputation. Ungrateful? Yes, she is. But with her ignorant and illiterate mind, she can be easily persuaded by the left. She doesn’t know that she is being used.
You’re the one, Celia Veloso. You are an INGRATUS MAXIMUS!
FILIPINO MENTALITY INDEED. AFTER YOU HELP THEM, THEY’LL RUIN YOU. MANY ARE LIKE THAT, ESPECIALLY THOSE IGNORANT, GULLIBLE AND EASILY BRIBED.
Maybe she’s looking for money…
Instead of PITY, now ANGER and REGRET is what I feel…..
The Attorney General of Indonesia categorically acknowledged that it was PNoy’s call to Indonesian President Widodo that caused the suspension of Veloso’s execution. Despite said acknowledgment, the Veloso Family are still complaining. They are truly UNGRATEFUL!!!!!!!!
Just wait BAD KARMA will surely hit you!!!
“I hate ingratitude more in a man than lying, vainness, babbling drunkenness, or any taint of vice whose strong corruption inhabits our frail blood.” Shakespeare
President Aquino even had to break proper protocol to go down the level of the Indonesian Foreign Minister to convey his plan of making MJ a state witness. How can you defend this family when they themselves are ungrateful.
Despite this, President Aquino pledged to work to reduce Veloso’s sentence, if not exonerate her. Her fate still hangs in the balance even today.
We here at Spratlys Charade do not approve of President Aquino’s current track record, but we know evil when we see one.
