A SYDNEY grandmother has been sentenced to death by hanging in Malaysia after an appeal court unanimously overturned her earlier acquittal on drug smuggling charges.

“We find the merits of the appeal, we allow the appeal and set aside the judgment of the judge and find her guilty as convicted. The only sentence under law is death by hanging,” the judges found.
Court of Appeal judge Mohtarudin Baki, told Ms Exposto: “The only sentence under the law is death by hanging. You have another round of appeal and we wish you luck.”
Ms Exposto’s lawyer Shafee Abdullah today told the court her client would exercise her right for a further appeal.
“You will win and you will walk away,” Ms Abdullah told Ms Exposto.
