Robredo lectures Duterte: We must keep Veloso’s welfare in mind (...meaning what?)

Photo of Leni Robredo taken during the 2016 election season.
Robredo she said it came as a “terrible shock.” when she heard President Rodrigo Duterte supposedly say “gave the go-ahead” for Veloso’s execution.  She then said "We must keep her (Veloso's) welfare in mind."

Instead of calling President Duterte to get his version of things, she instead uses the issue to attack and lecture the President about taking care of OFWs.

Ang kapal, who is she to lecture the President about taking care of OFWs when Duterte has done so much for OFWs in a very short period of time.

Robredo's Stupid Statement

I really said WTF is when I read her say "We must keep Veloso’s welfare in mind" and I couldn't help imagine the Yellowtards minions saying "yes we should keep her welfare in mind."

So here is the question

What exactly did she mean when she said "to keep Veloso's welfare in mind"? Did she mean lighting candles, praying for a miracle, or send a letter to Widodo that they will change their laws? Is that a serious action plan or a great meaningless motherhood statement made by her PR team.

Either Robredo is so shallow and dense or a certified trapo who has learned the art of saying something that does not mean anything.

Robredo: We must keep Veloso’s welfare in mind

Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo on Monday said it was the responsibility of the Philippine government to keep in mind the welfare of Filipina drug convict Mary Jane Veloso, who remains on death row for drug smuggling in Indonesia.

“Mary Jane’s case is emblematic of the hardships faced by millions of our overseas Filipino workers. We must keep her welfare in mind, along with the welfare of all OFWs, as they remain under our government’s protection and support despite working overseas,” Robredo said in a statement.

Robredo was reacting to reports citing Indonesian President Joko Widodo that President Rodrigo Duterte supposedly “gave the go-ahead” for Veloso’s execution, which she said came as a “terrible shock.”
According to media in Indonesia, Widodo shared his version of his conversation with Duterte to reporters outside the grand mosque in Serang, Banten for the Eid al-Adha.

The Vice President said she was hoping that the administration would shed light on the said issue “to address the understandable concern of so many Filipinos.”
“A year ago, the Filipino nation came together in prayer and unity to appeal to the Indonesian government to spare Mary Jane’s life. Our prayers were answered when she was given a reprieve, and as one nation, we rejoiced,” Robredo added.
The Philippine presidential palace on Monday said Duterte only told Widodo to “follow your own law” and “I will not interfere.” Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. also claimed that Duterte only said that “he respects their judicial processes and will accept whatever the final decision they will arrive at regarding her case.”
