British grandmother Lindsay Sandiford sentenced to death for drug trafficking (Coccaine)


 56-year-old British grandmother, has been sentenced to death by firing squad in Indonesia for drug trafficking. After the sentence, Sandiford wept and declined to comment as she was led back to prison, covering her face with a scarf. Her lawyer said it was likely an appeal would be launched against the sentence.
Lindsay had claimed in court that she was forced to take the drugs into the country by a gang that was threatening to hurt her children but the court gave her no listening ears.

 Airport custom officers at Bali's airport discovered 3.8 kilograms of cocaine in her luggage. And it was discovered later that two other British citizens and an Indian have already been convicted and sentenced to prison in connection with the crime.
In her witness statement, Sandiford said: "I would like to begin by apologising to the Republic of Indonesia and the Indonesian people for my involvement. I would never have become involved in something like this but the lives of my children were in danger and I felt I had to protect them."
We are awaiting what would be done next
