Egyptian Actress Menna Shalaby Gets One-Year Suspended Prison Sentence For Hashish Possession

The international Emmy nominee, Menna Shalaby received a one-year suspended sentence from a criminal court in Cairo for possession of hashish with the intention of consuming it, reported Ahram online.

The Egyptian-born 'Every Week Has a Friday' actress was detained in November at the Cario International Airport after authorities found hash in her luggage. Shalaby, who was returning to NYC, was released after several hours on EGP 50,000 (around $1820) bail after the prosecution requested to test the seized substances. The lab later confirmed that the substances contained hash and cannabis, both of which are under Drug List 1 of Egypt's drug law.

Under the suspended sentence, Shalaby will serve no jail time, but if she commits a similar offense in the ensuing three years, she'd be obliged to serve the one-year suspended sentence.

Shalaby was also fined EGP 10,000 though she denied the charges during the prosecution inquiry.
