Samantha Orobator from south London was arrested last August after she was allegedly caught with 1.5lb (680g) of heroin. The 20 year old, who is pregnant, had been told her trial would start today but the hearing has been postponed. Despite being in custody for nine months it is understood she has yet to speak to a lawyer. Anguish Of Accused Woman's Mum The British vice-consul in Bangkok in neighbouring Thailand flew out to Laos on Sunday to check on her. An embassy spokesman said: "We are trying very hard to ensure that she does have good legal representation." Lawyer Anna Morris from legal rights charity Reprieve also flew into the country after permission was granted to meet Orobator on Tuesday. The charity said she made contact with their office in London by telephone to say she had been told she will appear in court this morning. But Ms Morris told Sky News: "We have been told the trial will not take place today, and we are very much working on that basis. Phonthong prison :: Cells measuring four square metres are used to house up to six prisoners. :: The daily ration reportedly consists of two bowls of pig fat water soup and a bowl of sticky rice. :: Prisoners have reported incidents of abuse and torture, with some inmates having their genitals burnt. :: Since 2003 at least 39 people have been sentenced to death in the East Asian country. "It could take place tomorrow, but the trial has no fixed date." Reprieve said the trial has been brought forward, the suspicion being it had been done to stop Orobator getting proper legal representation. Phonthong prison, where she is being held, is notorious, with a reputation for beatings and brutality. Orobator is understood to have been arrested in Laos on her way back to the UK. Smuggling more than 500g of heroin carries a mandatory death sentence in the east Asian country.
