The sister of Lindsay Sandiford, a grandmother from Redcar sentenced to death by firing squad in Bali last week, has spoken of her fear that her sister will miss her opportunity to file an appeal as she is unable to afford a lawyer to represent her.
Lindsay’s sister, Hilary Parsons, spent the last of her savings trying to get Lindsay a lawyer in order that she might appeal against her death sentence.
However, despite her sister's efforts, the 56-year-old is still without a lawyer and now has under two weeks to file an appeal.
