March 30, 2011. For the first time, China executed overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) found guilty of drug trafficking. Sally Ordinario-Villanueva, Ramon Credo and Elizabeth Batain learned of their fate only during the promulgation of their sentences hours before the execution.

The three were dubbed as “drug mules,” mostly innocent persons used by drug trafficking syndicates to “ship” drugs by hiding it in the former’s baggage.
