Mary Joy Soriano is a 25-year-old OFW going home to Quirino province. She arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on board Emirates Airline flight 332 where liquid cocaine place in shampoo bottles were found in her luggage.
The liquid cocaine according to authorities when transformed to powder, could weigh as much as 2 kilograms and can be sold for about P10 million.
Soriano had many stops before flying back to Manila, she went to Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, Dubai, Brazil and then Qatar. Soriano is in custody by the PDEA and is now undergoing tactical interrogation. The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency is trying to identify the group intent to pick up the contraband. Mary Joy Soriano claims she was only paid to carry the items and was not aware that it contained illegal items like liquid cocaine.
Mary Joy Soriano is either a hardcore drug mule or a gullible OFW bringing home what she thought was pasalubong.
