British tourist Laura Plummer arrested in Egypt for smuggling painkillers.

The British Foreign Office has updated its travel directions following Laura Plummer's case.  The new instructions contained Tramadol in the drug list and mentioned Laura's situation by name"

Laura replied "yes" and the judge then taught the session clerk to document she "confessed".

The case was adjourned until Tuesday when her attorneys are expected to begin her defence and then submit records showing Omar Abdel Azim and his mother are being treated for disorders that need Tramadol.

"Do not be afraid [when talking to the judge] be brave.  Pray and I will pray for you," Mr Bassal informed Laura throughout the break.

Mr Bassal said: "In order to get the drug offense components to be complete, two requirements must be met.  Initial advance understanding that the substance is prohibited in the country of destination, and next it was introduced for trading," Mr Bassal advised the Telegraph following the semester.

"She meant that she's admitting that she had the Tramadol, but not admitting of being guilty.  The judge jumped to the conclusion she confesses before clarifying that she knew the question and this is worrying," Dia al-Bassal, Ms Plummer's attorney told the Telegraph.

"I did not know that she will deliver it, I will not send my wife to prison within my own country," Mr Abdel Aziz told the Telegraph.

But when the defence translator later clarified the query, she refused she was guilty.

Ms Laura Plummer met Mr Abdel Aziz at 2014 in Sharm El Sheikh when he had been employed as a hotel lifeguard.

There's no women's prison at the Red Sea governorate, so those awaiting trail are locked at a police cells.

Her legal team will input a written submission from her describing she had not admitted guilt, but had intended to say she carried the drug without knowing it had been prohibited and with no intention of selling it.

In a trip to her mobile prior to the trial, the Telegraph was told Ms Plummer has been locked up round the clock and was sleeping on the floor without a bed.

Ms Plummer broke down in tears during the semester because her attorneys told her she shouldn't have answered yes to the judge.

She said: "She's answered some questions wrong because she is not knowing them, she clearly can't think straight.

"You can imagine the pressure - this is her life"

Ms Plummer's sister, Rachel, said her sister had been clearly nervous, upset and sleep deprived.

Ms Plummer is being retained at a 15ft-by-15ft mobile with three other girls in Hurghada's Police station.

The 33-year-old shop employee from Hull was arrested at Hurghada airport after she was discovered to be taking 290 tramadol tablets in her bag.    

The couple had what's known as an Urfi marriage, which is a standard union contract which requires witnesses but isn't recognised by the nation.  Ms Plummer has since visited him two or three time a year.  Her last trip was scheduled to continue for 2 weeks based on Mr Abdel Aziz.

Laura Plummer sobbed in an Egyption court when she realised what had happened and attempted to fix her plea on the first day of her trial in the Red Sea city of Safaga.

"She's well-treated by the authorities in Egypt to the extent that she receives distinguished treatment comparing to Egyptian citizens,"

Standing before the judge in court, Ms Plummer was requested: "You are accused of smuggling and possessing Tramadol to Egypt?"

She said she was unaware the drug, which is lawful in the united kingdom, was banned in Egypt.
