Sandiford lawyer criticises 'fundamentally flawed' decision

The lawyer representing Lindsay Sandiford has said that she will be "devastated" by today's High Court loss against the government's refusal to fund her appeal against her death sentence.

Richard Stein from Leigh Day said:

Mrs Sandiford and her sister, both out in Bali, will be devastated by this decision. Whilst we have a judgment, we do not have the reasons for it.

We await these before being able to formulate an appeal to what we believe is a fundamentally flawed decision.

– Richard Stein, Leigh Day
