Ibrahim Halawa is an 18 year old Dubliner and an Amnesty International Prisoner of Conscience. He and his sisters were arrested in Egypt for nothing more than a peaceful protest while on their annual family holiday in August 2013. His sisters have been released on bail but Ibrahim has been in prison for over 15 months. ACT NOW! http://www.amnesty.ie/content/egypt-court-try-494-people-over-protests He celebrates his 19th birthday on the 13 of December. Amnesty International has conducted a thorough investigation of the case and determined that Ibrahim is innocent. He could not possibly have committed the crimes he has been charged with. A mass trial has been scheduled for early January. If convicted he could face the death penalty. Amnesty International believes Ibrahim should be released immediately and all charges against him dropped unconditionally. Lets show him that he is not forgotten!
