British Grandmother Appeals Bali Death Sentence to Indonesian Supreme Court

(4/28/2013)

Lindsay June Sandiford, the 56-year-old British grandmother sitting on death row in Bali’s Kerobokan prison for drug trafficking, has filed an appeal of her sentence with the Indonesian Supreme Court.

Declared guilty and sentenced to die before a firing squad in January 2013 for bringing cocaine worth an estimated US$2.4 million through Bali’s airport, an appeal against the severity of that inital decision was affirmed at the Bali High Court in early April.

Fadillah Agus, the lawyer representing Sandiford, confirmed that he has formally filed an appeal with the Supreme Court.

The appeal came after Courts in the U.K. declared that the U.K. Government was under no legal obligation to pay the legal cost of defending Sandiford in her life-or-death battle with the Indonesian justice system.

Agus was critical of the British government’s refusal to fund Sandiford’s defense, but said he would personally undertake to file an appeal on her behalf whether or not funds are available to pay his expenses.

The Supreme Court is expected to render a decision within the coming four months. That decision can also be appealed a further time to the Supreme Court after which the results of any second appeal will represent the last legal word in the case.

If Sandiford’s death sentence is upheld by the Supreme Court, her only remaining avenue of relief is an appeal for clemency made to the Indonesian President.
