The Foreign Office have released the following statement in relation to calls for Lindsay Sandiford's legal representation to be funded by the British Government.
"We can confirm that Lindsay Sandiford, with the assistance of the NGO Reprieve, is challenging the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's policy of not paying for, or providing legal representation for British nationals potentially facing the death penalty overseas.
The FCO will be robustly contesting the case.
Our policy is that HMG does not pay for legal representation for British nationals overseas."
"However, we assist British nationals in identifying potential legal representation, including by working closely with NGOs (for example with Reprieve).
It was through Consular staff's efforts in Indonesia that we were able to identify a lawyer who is prepared to assist Lindsay Sandiford with her appeal."
