Govt ‘disappointed’ at failed Bali death sentence appeal

The government has expressed disappointment that British grandmother Lindsay Sandiford has lost her appeal against her death sentence in Bali for drug trafficking.

We are disappointed to hear that Lindsay Sandiford's appeal has been refused by the High Court in Bail.

The UK strongly opposes the death penalty and has repeatedly made representations to the Indonesian government on this matter.

We will continue to provide consular assistance at this difficult time.

– Foreign Office spokesman
