Sol Pillas given last rites

29 April 2016

Militant groups gave Sol Pillas, secretary general of Migrante International, a final send-off at the Iglesia Filipina Independiente National Cathedral in Ermita, Manila, on April 26
Sol died after being comatose for seven months as a result of a stroke she suffered while attending a congressional hearing at the Batasang Pambansa in September last year.
The hearing was about the case of Maryjane Veloso, who had been sentenced to death in Indonesia for drug trafficking,  and proposals of the Bureau of Customs to open door-to-door boxes arrivihhng in the Philippines to search for smuggled goods.
She died last April 21.
“We grieve with her family, friends and Filipino migrant workers all over the world who she served until her last breath,” Migrante Interna-tional said.
Sol spent 25 years in Hong Kong as an OFW, and became one of Migrante’s leaders.
