This is a very troubling situation that happens more often than people think. Drug trafficking is a billion dollar industry with a lot to lose all around especially for drug smugglers whether voluntary or forced. In Bali, Indonesia a British grandmother, Lindsay Jun Sandiford 56, was sentenced to death by the court for smuggling $2.5 million in cocaine in her suitcase to a Bali island resort. The prosecution was only asking for 15 years not death. She had claimed in court the act was forced upon her because a gang threatened to hurt her children. More than 40 foreigners are currently on death row in Indonesia mostly for drug charges. Sandiford’s lawyer will appeal the case and the process could take years. So far, two other British citizens, and an Indian have been sentenced already in connection with the bust, while her so called accomplice awaits a verdict expected out Tuesday. The Bristish Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire said on Wednesday the government strongly disagrees with the verdict and has offered assistance to the Sandiford family. In the verdict, a panel of Denpasar District Court judges determined that Sandiford damages the reputation n of Bali’s tourism and weakened the government’s drug prevention program. Sounds like they are making her an example to other foreigners not serving justice, but their own egos. The president has given clemency to only four drug offenders on death row and the most recent still remains in prison.
