Calls for Govt to help Bali death sentence woman

A human rights charity has called for the Government to "step in" and help a British grandmother who lost her appeal against a death sentence for trafficking drugs into Bali.

This will be devastating for Lindsay and her family, following months of torment throughout the appeals process.

Without a lawyer to seek the new evidence needed for the Courts to re-review her sentence and prepare her clemency petition, Lindsay faces extremely difficult decisions.

We hope that the British government will step in to ensure that Lindsay is at least provided with a lawyer to help her avoid execution.

– Zoe Bedford, Casework lawyer at Reprieve
