Lindsay Sandiford, the woman from Redcar who faces the firing squad for smuggling drugs into Bali, will make a final appeal against her death sentence at Indonesia's Supreme Court. It comes a day after the 56 year old lost her British court bid to force the foreign office into paying for her appeal.
Mrs Sandiford's lawyer has formally given notice of her intention to appeal the death penalty in Jakarta, however he is unable to formally lodge the case until the funds are available. Mrs Sandiford insists she cannot afford the £8,000 needed for her appeal.
The Supreme Court appeal is her final chance of avoiding execution. If it fails, she can seek a judicial review from the same court however after that, only the Indonesian President can overturn the sentence. Her case is being supported by the British charity Reprieve who today released a statement.
"Lindsay's lawyer has now given notice of her intention to appeal to the Indonesian Supreme Court against her death sentence. However, after the British Government's refusal to help, she still lacks the funding she needs to ensure she has a lawyer for the appeal itself. She is now reliant on the genersity of members of the British public to ensure this can take place."
