JAILED LAURA’S 7-MONTH WAIT FOR EGYPT APPEAL
JAILED Briton Laura Plummer’s appeal in Egypt will be at the “end of the year”, her family say.
The shop worker, 33, was given three years in prison on Boxing Day after being found with 290 Tramadol pills, banned in the country.
She claimed the painkillers were for her Egyptian partner Omar Saad, who has a bad back, but was sent to notorious Al Qanater prison, Cairo.
Her sister Rachel Plummer posted this week: “Her appeal is end of the year, we still hope it can be sooner.” It came after Laura’s other sister Jayne Synclair wrote on Facebook: “She had a visit from Omar on Monday, she said she was ‘OK’.
“Very happy to see him and looking forward to our visit in two weeks. Laura is trying so hard to stay positive and counting down the days to her appeal (as are we), hoping for a full acquittal and deportation.”
Laura, from Hull, was arrested in October at Hurghada airport after the pills, available on prescription in the UK, were found in her suitcase.
