CAIRO: The blood and urine sample of the son of former President Mohamed Morsi, Abdullah, tested positive for drug abuse, according to a forensic report released Monday.
Morsi, and his friend Mohamed Abdel Moneim, with whom he had been caught, were released pending investigations on Sunday.
On Saturday, officers in Obour City allegedly found hashish joints inside a window-tinted car in which the two young men were sitting.
Morsi’s brother, Osama, said on his Facebook page that the charges against his brother are fabricated as part of the “regime’s defamation of honest people.”
The charge of hashish possession and abuse can lead to a prison sentence in Egypt.
