While Philippine authorities acknowledge that the last-minute reprieve Mary Jane Veloso got last April 29 has not erased her death penalty – with an execution still a real risk – there’s a chance the Indonesian courts might consider lessening her penalty if they can “ferret out” significant evidence against a drug trafficking ring that the two ASEAN neighbors want to crush.

An Indonesian firing squad executed eight convicted drug-traffickers from several countries on Wednesday, prompting Australia to recall its envoy to Jakarta and bringing an angry reaction from Brazil.

After learning that the alleged recruiter of Mary Jane Veloso has surrendered, Indonesian President Joko Widodo called a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
