Freedom and Human rights for Ibrahim Halawa
Free Ibrahim and let him return to Ireland to be with his family.
Why is this important?
Ibrahim is currently on hunger strike after been detained at the age of seventeen for peaceful protesting. He is now twenty-one years of age and is being held in awful conditions in Egypt. He is an Irish citizen and needs our support.
His next court appearance is in March and the more pressure given to the Egyptian government by people who care about breach of human rights the better!
Now, Ibrahim's trial has been put back 19 times while he spends his youth in prison impacting his physical and mental health.
Amnesty International has established that Ibrahim Halawa is a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression and assembly.
We urge the Egyptian authorities to release Ibrahim from his unlawful detention for expressing his right to free speech.
Ibrahim's detainment without trial is more than deeply upsetting and dis-appointing-Factually it is a clear breach of human rights and it is long past time that the Irish government need to act on behalf of Ibrahim Halawa.
