Plummer said she did not know the drug was illegal in Egypt and was bringing the pills into the country for her partner, who suffers from back pain after an accident, according to the BBC. Plummer's lawyers immediately lodged an appeal.
"She's the kindest person".
She said her daughter has now been moved to another police station ahead of her move to prison. I'm even more anxious now she's in actual prison with real criminals. "Pray and I will pray for you", Mr Bassal told Laura during the break.
Turner did acknowledge that she was naive but that she was honest and hardworking too.
"She is not the strongest person, she's already having a nervous breakdown and is being kicked and punched in the holding prison".
Osman argued that this mistranslation made it look as though Plummer had pleaded guilty to drug trafficking, "but she didn't", he said. She's out there by herself. Smuggling drugs can be punishable by death in the country, but Plummer is set to serve a three-year jail term instead. "She doesn't deserve that".
The family has previously said Plummer had no idea that what she was doing was illegal and was just "daft". "This was was translated to the main judge as Laura admitting that she did the crime".
She cried "it's not fair" during scenes of confusion as the judge initially thought she had admitted the offence by confirming the painkillers were in her suitcase.
Plummer met her partner Aziz, also known as Caboo, three years ago in Sharm El Sheikh where he was working as a lifeguard.
