The family of British tourist Laura Plummer, who was sentenced to jail in Egypt for smuggling drugs into the country, have expressed their anger after an alleged pardon granted for their daughter was reportedly withdrawn by Egyptian president.
Laura, 33 was jailed on St. Stephen's Day for bringing Tramadol pills into Egypt, which are illegal in the country.
In a statement posted to Facebook, her sister Rachel said: 'Just wanted to say thank you everyone for your continuous support.
Her family say they had been given "false hope" but have vowed they won't give up on her.
Her mother Roberta, 63, told The Sun: "How can they do this to her?"
'I had no info to update and only found out today my sister was not getting pardoned. We will now look to getting the appeal in process.
"We will get knocked down over and over but we will keep getting up and do everything we can until we bring her home".
Laura has previously told her family she is struggling to cope in harsh conditions in jail.
Ms Plummer has apparently not yet been told the news.
Miss Plummer's family said she visited Egypt several times a year to spend time with him, and the pair "wed" in an Orfi ceremony.
The family has been told an appeal could take up to 10 months to reach court.
They have defended Caboo against accusations that he put pressure on Plummer to supply the drugs, arguing that he waited for her outside Hurghada global airport for five hours when she was initially detained and their four-year relationship was genuine.
"British Foreign Office officials have only ever maintained throughout that they have received no such information from the Egyptian authorities". I did not want her to violate her life, and I had no idea she would bring tramadol - I would have told her: 'Don't bring it to Egypt'.
A spokesperson for East Yorkshire Police added: 'We are trying to determine if a criminal act may have taken place.
'This investigation is still ongoing'.
