Lindsay Sandiford has been refused financial help from the UK government to appeal against her death sentence for smuggling drugs in Bali. What support, if any, do you think people convicted of a crime in a foreign country should receive from the British government. Should it depend on the nature of the crime; the severity of the sentence received; belief in the innocence of the person; or the trustworthiness of the judicial system of the country where the crime occurred and the trial was held. Alternatively, should anyone found guilty of a crime abroad be left to face the penalty laid down by that court?
Interested in what people think.
