The British woman brought her husband to Egypt anesthetic and was under arrest
In Egypt arrested a British citizen who tried to smuggle into the country painkillers for my Egyptian husband. Now, the woman faces up to 25 years in prison, reports The Guardian.
According to the publication, the 33-year-old Laura Plummer was detained at Egyptian airport at the beginning of October after her suitcase was discovered 290 tramadol tablets and a few tablets of naproxen, which she carried for her husband suffering from back pain. After that, the woman was forced to sign the 38-page document in Arabic and was sent to prison, where she spent almost a month with another 25 women.
Tramadol as a psychotropic opioid analgesics and is often used instead of heroin. In Britain the drug is resolved, but in Egypt it is prohibited.
As a result, Plummer was suspected of drug trafficking. It is noted that it is threatened by punishment in the form of deprivation of liberty for a term up to 25 years, and one of the women lawyers did not rule out that she may be sentenced to the death penalty.
As stated by The Guardian in the UK foreign office, the authorities keep the situation under control and support Plummer and her family.
