MANILA - Maria Kristina Sergio, the alleged recruiter of Filipina death convict Mary Jane Veloso, has surrendered to police.

Sergio appeared at the Nueva Ecija provincial police office at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday to turn herself in, saying she fears for her life.

She also requested for a lawyer from the Public Attorney's Office.

Sergio is accused of allegedly recruiting Veloso to go to Malaysia before giving her a suitcase with drugs to go to Indonesia.

Veloso was arrested with 2.6 kilograms of heroin at Yogyakarta airport in April 2010.

In an interview with DZMM before her surrender, Sergio denied that she offered Veloso a job, saying she was in the real estate business in 2010.

She also turned the tables on the Veloso family and said it was the Velosos who are threatening her.

"'Yun pong sinasabi po na nag-threat ako sa kanila, kabaligtaran po. Sila po ang nagti-threat sa amin, 'yan po ang totoo," she said.
