Surigao Norte urges PGMA to help save Ranario from death row

Surigao City (November 7) -- The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) of Surigao del Norte have joined various, organizations and individuals to intensify measures to save Marilou Ranario from death row in Kuwait.

In a resolution passed recently by the SP, presided by Vice Governor Noel Catre, the province of Surigao del Norte earnestly asked Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to intercede on behalf of the family of Marilou Ranario and other OFW prisoners for their exoneration and immediate release.

It may be recalled that Ranario, 37, a native from Tubod, Surigao del Norte, is an OFW worker in the Middle East, unable to bear further abuse from her employer, allegedly stabbed her female employer to death in 2005.

Ranario, who is also a former teacher, is known to her friend as a person with a good heart and a lending hand, But with the sudden twist of fate, her comrades who were witness of her good deeds were saddened that despite her kindness, she seemed to be helpless behind bars and languishing in death row in a foreign country.

Meantime, Rosario and Encarnacion Ranario, parents of Marilou, are thankful to the assistance given to them by the local government.

Ranario has been scheduled for execution in January or February next year. (Fryan E. Abkilan, PIA-Surigao del Norte)
