Indonesia upholds death sentence for British woman
JAKARTA (AP) - Indonesia's highest court has upheld a death sentence for a British woman convicted of smuggling US$2.5 million (S$3.2 million) worth of cocaine into the resort island of Bali.
Supreme Court spokesman Ridwan Mansur said on Friday that a three-member judge panel unanimously rejected Lindsay June Sandiford's appeal.
The 57-year-old woman was found guilty in January by a district court and sentenced to face a firing squad. She lost an appeal three months later after the Bali High Court upheld the lower court's ruling.
A spokesman for the British embassy in Jakarta, Adam Rutland, said consular assistance will continue to be provided to Sandiford and her family.
