British woman jailed for THREE years for bringing painkillers into Egypt

British woman jailed for THREE years for bringing painkillers into Egypt”

Laura Plummer, 33, was arrested after she was found with the Tramadol tablets in her suitcase, on 9 October.

The woman, from Hull, was arrested at the Hurghada global airport on the Red Sea on 9 October. She's out there by herself.

Until her sentence is reduced, Plummer's family will keep worrying.

Tramadol is a Class C prescription drug in the United Kingdom but is banned in Egypt as it is widely used as a heroin substitute.

She said her daughter has now been moved to another police station ahead of her move to prison. "The judge jumped to the conclusion that she confesses before clarifying that she understood the question and this is worrying", Dia al-Bassal, Plummer's lawyer told The Telegraph.

The case was adjourned until Tuesday when her lawyer are expected to begin her defence and submit documents showing Omar Abdel Azim and his mother are being treated for illnesses that need Tramadol. "She doesn't deserve that", Rachel told the BBC.

Meanwhile, Turner is looking into whether or not Plummer would be able to serve part of her prison term in a United Kingdom prison. She did not try to hide them, they said. Even half of that would be better.

Tramadol is a strong opiate painkiller used to treat moderate and severe pain, according to the NHS. It is available on prescription in many other countries, including the United Kingdom.

Nazareth Cuts Back Christmas Celebration Over Trump's Call On Jerusalem
Mayor Ali Salam - a Muslim - said Trump's decision "has taken away the joy of the holiday", the Times of Israel reported . Mr Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital city, was a significant United States policy change.

There had been concerns that she could face up to 25 years in jail, or even the death penalty.

She said the family were trying to find out more details about what happened in the courtroom yesterday.

"She's the kindest person". Anything less than three years.

Plummer met her partner Aziz, also known as Caboo, three years ago in Sharm El Sheikh where he was working as a lifeguard.

Mr Turner accepted Plummer had been naive but was "decent, honest and hard-working".

The family's local MP Karl Turner said: "I think it's a damning indictment about good sense and fair play".

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "We will continue to provide assistance to Laura and her family following the court ruling in Egypt, and our embassy is in regular contact with the Egyptian authorities".
