EGYPT ARREST HORROR British holidaymaker arrested in Egypt for carrying painkillers faces seven years in jail even if found innocent

Laura Plummer was arrested for carrying painkillers in her suitcase

Laura, 33, from Hull, was arrested at Hurghada airport last month and accused of drug trafficking after 290 banned tramadol were found.

She said they were for husband Omar, a local entertainments rep, who suffers back pain.

Lawyer Mohamed Osman said: “If she is convicted of deliberately bringing them in to sell she faces the death penalty or 25 years.

If it’s believed she brought them for her husband she will still be jailed.”
