Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika has called on all parties to honor the decision of the Denpasar District Court judges who have sentenced 56-year-old Brit Lindsay June Sandiford to death for smuggling 4.7 kilograms of cocaine into Bali.

Pastika, who once served as the head of Bali’s police, asks that the court’s decision be honored, describing the death sentence meted out to Sandiford as fair and a verdict that fully considered a number of aspects, including both the effects and consequences of narcotics distribution in Indonesia.

Quoted by Seputarbali.com, Pastika described the sentence as “sufficiently fair with the sentence of death.”

Pastika has little concern for international objections to the sentence of death given to the British grandmother, adding: “Let’s all honor the (legal) process of any country, wherever you are from.”

The head of the panel of judges sentencing Sandiford to death, Amser Simanjuntak, found the woman guilty of violating the 2009 narcotics law forbidding the import of illegal drugs into Indonesia. Ignoring calls by public prosecutors to sentence the woman to 15 years in prison, the judges chose to impose the maximum sentence of death before a firing squad.

Sandiford was arrested at Bali’s airport on May 19, 2012 with 3.8 kilograms of cocaine concealed in the lining of her luggage. Her arrest led to the further arrest of 3 other Britons Paul Beales, Julian Anthony Ponder and his wife Rachel Lisa Dougall. An Indian national, Nandagopal Akkineni, was also arrested in the case.

Paul, Rachel and Nandagopal were respectively sentenced to four years, one year and five years in prison. Prosecutors have asked for 7 years prison for Julian with his sentencing scheduled for January 29, 2013.
