Help 56 year-old British grandmother Lindsay Sandiford appeal her death sentence with the Supreme Court in Bali. The UK government won’t help her but we can.

Help save Lindsay Sandiford’s life

Lindsay was found with 4.8kg (10.6lb) of cocaine at Bali airport. She was sentenced to death by firing squad.

She got a death sentence despite taking part in a sting after her arrest which resulted in the arrest and conviction of the smuggling plot’s alleged masterminds, who got lighter sentences…

As it was read out, there were gasps of surprise in Denpasar District Court as not even the prosecution had been seeking the death penalty.

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.’

She lost her first appeal… she has one more chance

I got word from her sister, Hilary, this Monday (April 8th) that Lindsay lost her first appeal. Now, Lindsay has until April 24th to file an appeal with the Supreme Court to fight for her life. She will then have two more weeks to submit her appeal. She needs legal help to this. However, she doesn’t have the funds to pay a lawyer and the UK government will not help her.

Lindsay needs £8,000 to file the appeal with the Supreme Court.

The UK government has refused to help her get a lawyer and mount a defense. But we can help.

We’ve already raised over £3,000 — with your help we can raise the rest.

Getting Lindsay the £8,000 will at least give her a chance to fight for her life.

We did it once, we can do it again!

Before her first appeal, I set up an IndieGoGo campaign and we raised several thousand pounds in just a day. We had to refund those funds since another campaign raised the required money independently. So I know we can do because we did it once. And we can do it again. This time, I am coordinating with Reprieve so that we don’t have a duplication of efforts.

There’s very little time left to help

Time is of the essence, so please help out as soon as you can and please tell your friends and spread this as far and wide as you can. Ideally, we need to raise this amount in just a few days so we can get Lindsay the funds as soon as possible.

I’ve spoken with Reprieve and they will be forwarding the money raised to Lindsay to file her appeal at the Supreme Court.

You can make a difference

I don’t know Lindsay personally, I hate drugs, and I don’t condone what Lindsay did. But I also don’t believe that she deserves to die for it.

So, on behalf of someone whom I’ve never even met, please help so that we can give her the chance to fight for her life.

Because everyone deserves the right to a legal defence.
