MANILA — Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Sunday expressed willingness to help an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) on death row in Bahrain.
During his visit to fire victims in Malabon on Sunday where he extended assistance to them, President Rodrigo Duterte’s top aide told Precy Aguinaldo, mother of the OFW languishing in death row in Bahrain, that the Office of the President will seriously look into her son’s case.
“For the sentence to be commuted, we will knock on the doors of your majesty’s big heart and we will seek his safety from capital punishment through commutation of (the death) sentence to life imprisonment. That’s what we’re requesting from them, I hope Bahrain will hear us, let’s pray,” he said in Filipino.
Go also encouraged Aguinaldo not to lose hope and to keep praying for positivity regarding her son’s case.
Go earlier facilitated the speedy repatriation of the remains of Angelo Claveria, the OFW found in a septic tank in South Korea.
According to Claveria’s sister, Go personally called her to inquire about the details of his case and committed to help repatriate the remains of the Filipino worker.
Claveria’s skeletal remains arrived in the country at the Iloilo International Airport on Sunday morning. (PNA)
