Teo

Sa Facebook at online sa pangkalahatan, marami nang nasulat at nasabi tungkol sa kampanya ng gobyernong Aquino na siraan ang pamilya ni Mary Jane Veloso, na ang ginamit na tuntungan ay ang pagtuligsa, at hindi pagpapasalamat, ng pamilya sa gobyerno.

marc lino abila

Literal na binibilang natin ang oras bago bawian ng buhay ng gobyerno ng Indonesia si Mary Jane Veloso sa kasong drug trafficking. Hanggang sa ngayon, hindi pa rin nakikinig si Pang.
