Aquino meets VP Binay on human trafficking

MANILA - PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III called for a meeting with Vice President Jejomar Binay Friday, a day after China ruled out commutation of sentence for the three Filipinos in death row.

Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said part of the agenda of the meeting is human trafficking.

She did not confirm if the fate of the three Filipinos will be discussed. The three are facing the death penalty in China after they were found guilty of drug trafficking. They were reportedly exploited by drug syndicates and were paid to carry illegal drugs into China.

The meeting is ongoing as of this posting. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
