A regional trial court in Nueva Ecija province has issued arrest warrants on the alleged recruiters of convicted Filipino drug mule Mary Jane Veloso.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) earlier approved the filing of large-scale illegal recruitment against Maria Kristina Sergio and her live-in partner Julius Lacanilao, who are accused of illegally recruiting Filipino drug mules.

The DOJ, in a 19-page resolution dated May 7, 2015, recommended Sergio and Lacanilao's indictment for large-scale illegal recruitment.

While the resolution involved complaints filed by other complainants who recently surfaced, it discussed the pair's alleged modus to use illegal recruitment as a tool in trafficking illegal drugs -- the same modus that led to her arrest, and eventual conviction in Indonesia, according to Veloso. - with a report from Ina Reformina, ABS-CBN News
