Three Filipinos are scheduled to be terminated next week in China. Their crime: Drug Trafficking! These Filipinos are overseas contract workers whose lone purpose for travelling abroad is to seek good fortune for their families. Alas, they had taken the bait, acting as couriers for big time Chinese drug syndicates, knowingly or unknowingly of what the repercussions may bring, in their eyes, the sure money shone like gold, and now death awaits... A word of caution: the bait kills...

Good for them, they deserve it! Ignorance has it's price. I wonder what their fortune cookies might be telling them =)

Ok, then they deserve to die and do not deserve a tinge of compassion. The government should not waste its time and my taxes on these roaches.

Being a courier is really a bait by itself. You get attracted by the offer of money doing it, knowing fully well that you could be caught but you still accepted it. Some claimed they don't know what they are really carrying in the said bag , but didn't they even think why it has to be them not the ones who asked , to transport them. well, i know of an acquiantance from before who sometimes would go to Hongkong just to be a courier and be able to have the money. He was lucky because he never gets caught. I just don't know if he still do that these days.

Hello Ms Eileen Leyva, The bottom line will be the worst effect to your people especially those working abroad. I hope people will and can find ways to survive and stop doing devilish acts.

Hi friend, just to add my personal note on this topic, I think 3 types of people are usually more prone to be baited, the innocent, the poorand the greedy. Although it could happen to anyone so take care everyone especially when travelling.

This is the sad flight of our people, just to earn and have a decent life for their family, they fell on this dangerous bait. I am saddened by the fact that they will suffer the consequences but the real culprit are still out there, making money out of these poor prey. I don't know who's to blame here. The victims or the government officials who enjoy good life while our people are suffering ! Where are we heading as people?

Yeah sad and unfortunate for this victims or are they really victims that we do not know. I think there are some that willingly and knowingly agree to this kind of arrangement that they act as courier to earn more money. But if they are indeed innocent victims then I think China should be a bit more considerate in dealing with this one and find the true culprits than just killing them.

I feel for the innocent but the cardinal rule is ignorance is punishable by law.
