Media coverage of Pinoy 1 execution in China tame and subdued

Unlike in March when media coverage akin to a circus marked the execution of three Filipino drug traffickers in China, Thursdays death by lethal injection of another drug courier — code named Pinoy 1 — was tame and subdued. His name was withheld by authorities, and news organizations exercised some form of restraint and self-regulation that respected the boundaries set by his relatives.
