Netizens tag Veloso family ungrateful for slamming Aquino gov’t
Netizens took to social media their sentiments on the statements of Mary Jane Veloso’s family denying that President Benigno had a role to save her from execution in Indonesia.
Most netizens commented that Veloso’s family were ungrateful of the government’s efforts to spare her from execution.
“Nawala simpatya ko sa Pamilyang ito, imbes magpasalamat sa lahat nakuha pang magpagamit sa Migrante na alam naman ng lahat na may pansariling interes..tsktsk #ItuloyAngBitay #IsamaSiNanay,” posted a certain Stewart Sotto on Friday.
Veloso, a migrant worker who was convicted for drug trafficking, was granted a temporary reprieve from execution by Indonesia last Wednesday. Eight other convicts were executed.
“Ngayon ay nandito na kami sa Pilipinas ay marami kaming sisingilin sa gobyerno. Sabi nila sa kanila nanggaling kung bakit hindi natuloy ang bitay ng anak ko, hindi totoo ‘yon,” Celia, Mary Jane’s mother said in a press briefing after their arrival Friday.
“Hanggang sa ngayon, niloko pa rin kami. Akala namin, siya ang gumawa ng paraan para mailigtas ang anak ko,” she said
She also slammed the Department of Foreign Affairs from keeping them away from the media.
“Napakawalang utang na loob. Samantalang nung muntikan ng maparusahan ang anak eh todo makaawa. Yan ba ang panunukling ibibigay mo sa Pangulo at sa Gobyerno naten? Tandaan mo pati sambayanang Pilipino inaksaya mo rin ang simpatya. This is another disgusting behavior which a filipino may have. Utang pa kamo sayo? Eh ginawa ni Pnoy lahat kahit na suntok sa buwan pa. He was able to bend other nation’s law JUST BECAUSE OF YOUR DAUGHTER. Nasayang din ang Divine Intervention na hiniling ng mga Pilipino to save the ass of your daughter,” a certain Clyde Lester Lucero also said on Facebook.
A former member of Aquino’s communication team, Ricky Carandang, said he still has compassion for Veloso.
“Despite her attitude, I have some compassion for Mary Jane Veloso‘s mom. Under extreme stress, she was victimized by the militants,” he posted on Twitter.
“Naman kasi. Learn to be grateful din Mrs. Veloso. ANd must we blame all our problems on the government?” Janis Ian (@haohaoflakes) posted on Twitter. FM/AU
