05 May 2020


By Vir B. Lumicao



A Filipina domestic helper was released from court today, May 5, after the prosecution dropped a charge of drug trafficking against her and African co-defendant.

Mary Ann Salazar, 27, and Obinna Emmanuel Abba, 32, were set free by Eastern Magistrate Bina Chainrai after the prosecution withdrew the charge against them, citing insufficient evidence.

The charge pertained to 2 kilos of methamphetamine (or “ice) hidden inside cans of food products sent via air parcel addressed to Salazar.

The parcel was intercepted at the Hong Kong International Airport Air Mail Centre on Jan 4. Two days later, it was delivered to an address in Siu Sai Wan where Salazar and  Abba were staying, and she accepted it.

The prosecutor said there was not enough evidence to show that the Filipina knew that the parcel, which was shipped from Malaysia, contained drugs.
