‘Lindsay Sandiford is a British Citizen sentenced to death by firing squad in Indonesia.  Lindsay has pleaded with the UK Government to help her secure funds for a competent Indonesian lawyer to help her prepare papers for a Judicial Review to look at her case again and to hopefully take into account evidence overlooked in the original trial. The UK Government has refused to help.

Lindsay has received a letter from the Court in Indonesia informing her that she needs to apply for the Judicial Review ASAP or she will be listed for execution.

This is a gross miscarriage of justice and Lindsay deserves one last chance to challenge the death sentence.  She is not asking to be set free or to be returned to the UK, she is simply asking for the opportunity to seek justice in the Indonesian Court and to hopefully have her sentence commuted.  Indonesia has recently stepped up the execution of prisoners on death row so time is of the essence.’
