Veloso recruiters ordered arrested


A court in Nueva Ecija has ordered the arrest of Mary Jane Veloso’s recruiters—Ma. Christina Sergio and Ju- lius Lacanilao.

The two are currently detained at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

The warrant of arrest was issued by Judge Nelson Tribiana of the Baloc, Sto. Domingo, Nueva Ecija Regional Trial Court Branch 37 on May 14, 2015.

The court directed the NBI to present Sergio and Lacanilao  “as soon as possible to be dealt with accordingly to law.”

No bail was set for the two accused.

Veloso was meted the sentence in Indonesia for possession of 2 kilograms of heroin. She was granted a reprieve on the day of her execution upon the appeal of the Philippine government.

The Department of Justice earlier filed illegal recruitment charges against Sergio and Lacanilao on the basis of the complaints filed by her three alleged victims, namely Lorna Valino, Ana Marie Gonzales and Jenalyn Paraiso.
