An Indonesian court this week sentenced a 56 year old grandmother from the UK to death after she was caught trying to smuggle $2
.5M worth of cocaine in her suitcase on to the island of Bali. Prosecutors in the case only were asking for a sentence of 15 years so this was not something that was expected. Despite being a crime that carries the death penalty, Indonesia has not actually executed anyone in almost 5 years. Death sentences in Indonesia are carried out by firing squad.
She was arrested last May and said she had been coerced into carrying the drugs because her kids were being threatened. Appeals in Indonesia take several years to complete. There are currently about 10 tourists on death row who have been caught smuggling drugs into the country.
