A 56-year-old British woman has been sentenced to death in Indonesia for drug trafficking.
Lindsay Sandiford was arrested in May last year after Bali police, carrying out a routine customs check, found 4.8kg (10.6lb) of cocaine in the lining of her suitcase.
Sebastian Saville, former chief executive of the human rights charity Release, told the Today programme's Evan Davis that the use of the death penalty is "utterly deplorable".
"There are many [local] people executed every year... for much smaller amounts of drugs," he said.
