You're innocent until proven guilty, or guilty until proven innocent! Either way, Ahmed Azmi has finally been found innocent by an Egyptian court, after being accused of possessing and using drugs in Sharm El Sheikh back in April.
At the time, police had found pot and cocaine in Ahmad's car as he was stopped on his way home. The Egyptian actor then said, “I was released by the police after proving that the drugs I was taking were medicated and prescribed by my doctor. They weren’t narcotics, they were pain killers. But unfortunately, the media only focused on my arrest and exaggerated the whole incident, and completely ignored the fact that I was released shortly after being found innocent.”
And what do you know? He was right! Following the court's ruling Azmi said, "I was confident that I would be found innocent. Thank God that this crisis is over and the court released a verdict in my favour."
