VP BINAY ASSURES GOVERNMENT HELP TO FAMILY OF OFW IN DEATH ROW

VP BINAY ASSURES GOVERNMENT HELP TO FAMILY OF OFW IN DEATH ROW. Vice President Jejomar C. Binay assures the family of Joselito Zapanta, an Overseas Filipino Worker in Saudi Arabia facing death penalty for killing a Sudanese, that the government will exert all efforts to help them. The victim’s family initially has asked for a SR 5 million blood money but reduced it to SR 4 million. King Abdullah has
deferred the implementation of the sentence to give Zapanta’s family more time to raise the blood money. With the Vice President are USec. Jesus Yabes, head of the Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affair and other DFA officials, as well as Susan Ople of the Blas Ople Policy Center.
