A 55-year-old British woman could face the death penalty in Indonesia after she was arrested for allegedly attempting to smuggle more than 4kg of cocaine into Bali.
Customs officers named the woman as Lindsay June Sandiford from Redcar on Teesside.
The woman was arrested at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport on May 19 after arriving on a flight from Bangkok. It is understood another two British nationals have also been arrested, along with a person travelling on an Indian passport.
After weighing, the total cocaine is 4.791kg. This is a big international network. The charge against them would carry the death penalty.
