20 year old Irishman, Ibrahim Halawa has now been in prison in Egypt for 1035 days.
During a family holiday to Egypt, Ibrahim and his three sisters Omaima, Fatima and Somaia went to a protest in Cairo. When the protest turned violent they took refuge in the Al Fath mosque. Security forces stormed the mosque arresting the four siblings. Ibrahim’s sisters were released on bail; almost three years later, he remains in prison. He was just 17 years old at the time of his arrest.
On 29 June, Ibrahim will face his fourteenth trial and media reports suggest that a verdict is expected. It is vital that as many people as possible contact the Egyptian President calling for his immediate and unconditional release. Join us.
Amnesty has conducted a thorough review of the evidence and concluded that Ibrahim could not have committed the violent crimes he has been charged with. He is a Prisoner of Conscience imprisoned for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression and assembly.
His continuing imprisonment in truly horrific conditions represents an inexcusable violation of both international and Egyptian law.
