China to proceed with execution of 3 Pinoys

MANILA, Philippines – China will proceed with the execution of three Filipino drug convicts after almost a month of delay.

Chinese Ambassador Liu Jianchao said in a news conference that a commutation of the death sentences “has been ruled out,” adding that the verdict of China’s Supreme People’s Court was final and would be enforced “sooner or later.”

He said the final verdict had nothing to do with a recent territorial spat with the Philippines.

In Malacañang, presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said “we have to respect the decision of the Chinese authorities on that matter.”
