Mohamed Morsi's son sentenced to one year in prison on drug charges
An Egyptian court has sentenced the youngest son of former president Mohamed Morsi to one year in prison on charges of possession and use of hashish.
A court in Banha handed down the sentence and fine of $1,400 for Abdullah Morsi and one of his friends.
Morsi's defence lawyer, Mohamed Abu Leila, said the case "was fabricated".
"Rulings nowadays don't deserve comment; the entire system is defective," Abu Leila said.
Morsi was arrested on March 1 after allegedly being found in possession of two hashish joints while he and a friend were in a car parked by the roadside in Qalyubia province, north of Cairo.
Abdullah Morsi had denied the charges.
Morsi's other son, Osama, had dismissed the accusations, saying his brother's arrest was an attempt to "defame the family".
