CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court sentenced a British woman to three years in prison on Tuesday for smuggling around 300 painkiller tablets into the country, in a ruling her defence team said she would appeal to have overturned or commuted.

Laura Plummer, a 33-year-old shop worker from Hull, was arrested in October after the Tramadol tablets were found in her suitcase.

Speaking to the court on behalf of Plummer, the lawyer, said she had no criminal intent in bringing in the painkillers.

On Monday the lawyer, Mohamed Othman, told Reuters: “It is illogical that she was dealing in Tramadol.

Please look them up on their prisons' web sites for current address information.

Women in prison are looking for someone on the outside with whom to write through the US Mail to help make their time while incarcerated go by quicker.

Ads prior to 2014 are here and they are updated occasionally with address changes or other updates, and now and then released inmates' ads are removed. Please consider befriending any of those whose ads are still here!

They may be older ads but they're still seeking pen pals.

Plummer was arrested on arrival from Britain in October, and her detention was extended twice prior to her court appearance.

Plummer’s family said on Tuesday they were disgusted by the way the trial had been conducted. Yesterday in the court she wasn’t even allowed her own interpreter.

Her family has previously presented medical records demonstrating that he had been in an accident and suffers from chronic back pain that requires medication, according to while explaining that Plummer’s actions had no criminal intent. Even the plane ticket is almost double the price of those pills.”Tramadol is a synthetic opioid medication used to relieve moderate sources of pain.

In the United States, the Drug Enforcement Agency classifies tramadol as a Schedule IV drug, which puts it in the same category as Xanax or Ambien.
