THE Indonesian government has set April 28, 2015 (Tuesday) as execution date for Filipino convicted drug smuggler Mary Jane Veloso and nine other foreign nationals at Nusa Kambangan maximum prison Island in Cilacap, Central Java.

The date of execution was announced while the prisoners were having their few remaining time with their families and diplomatic officials this Saturday, reports said.

If there will be no further changes on the schedule, they will be executed through a firing squad.

Rights groups, leaders and international community have expressed condemnation on the looming execution.
