UK Grandmother Appeals Indonesian Death Sentence

12 February 2013

A British grandmother has appealed the death sentence she received in Indonesia for smuggling cocaine worth US $2.5 million into the resort island of Bali, her lawyer said. In the appeal filed to the higher court, attorney Fadillah Agus said Lindsay June Sandiford, 56, cooperated with authorities to provide information that led to other convictions. However, her help was not considered by the court. “She has acknowledged that she did that crime, but the punishment was not fair and out of proportion,” Agus said, noting that her cooperation with the police led to the arrests of the other suspects.—AP
