Siri Aslinda, 35, was convicted of drug trafficking and sentenced to death in July this year in China.
Aslinda and her partner ,Mohd Yusri bin Mohd Yusoff, were stopped by customs officials on Oct 24th, 2015 in Shenzhen. Both are Singaporeans.
Aslinda is currently awaiting an appeal at the Guangdong High Court.
Aslinda is currently represented pro-bono in Singapore by human rights lawyer M Ravi. Chinese lawyers based in Hong Kong and China also responded to act for her in China pro-bono following a report on her case by CNN after Mr Ravi raised awareness on her case.
The lawyers in China and Hong Kong however have requested for disbursement fees for miscellaneous expenses such as filing fees and travelling fees which are expected to be in the amount of HKD50,000, which work out to about SGD8,600 (rounded up to the nearest $100, just in case).
Her family is unable to raise the fees and hopes that they will be able to raise these fees through members of the public who would like to assist them in her appeal.
