Lindsay Sandiford: Government are 'condoning the death penalty'

The Government has done very little to support me. The Foreign Office (FCO) has done even less.

There are, and will continue to be, British nationals facing execution without lawyers and because they can not raise their voices the Government is standing by refusing to assist with funding of lawyers for them.

The Government and FCO are doing all they can to resist me at this difficult time."
