Former Esperance goalkeeper Sami Helal sentenced to one year in prison
Former Espérance Sportive de Tunis goalkeeper Sami Helal has been sentenced to a one-year in prison for drug use on Thursday.
Helal’s prison sentence was halved as he was previously handed down a two-year prison sentence in absentia before the court reduced it to one year, according to Tunisian al-Chourouk newspaper. He was also handed a fine of 1000 Tunisian dinars.
Tunisian security forces arrested Helal upon his arrival at Tunis Carthage Airport on Wednesday from Morocco, where he has been living for the past year.
The goalkeeper is currently serving a two-year ban for doping after testing positive for a prohibited substance in October 2015, according to the Tunisian Football Association. The ban is due to end on September 2017.
