THESE are the squalid conditions British tourist Laura Plummer could face after she was jailed for three years for smuggling painkillers into Egypt. Plummer's family said she did not realize Tramadol was illegal in Egypt when she chose to bring the pills to help with her husband's chronic back pain, which she obtained from a friend, the BBC reports.
Ms Plummer's lawyer Mohamed Othman said the allegations against his client were "illogical" as her plane ticket was "double the price" of the pills.
She wept as she appeared before a judge in handcuffs on Christmas morning and was suddenly handed a three-year sentence for the charge of drug smuggling, the report said.

Laura's family say she will now be taken to Qena prison - about an hour's drive north of Luxor - where inmates sleep in cells with no bed and only blankets. "She doesn't deserve that".
They said she did not try to hide the medication and initially thought it was a joke when she was pulled up by officials.
"I just can't believe it, she couldn't do three months, now it's three years", Roberta Sinclair, Ms Plummer's mother, told the Telegraph.
It is not clear when an appeal against her sentence might be heard.
