Take urgent action! 

He was arrested for his alleged role in violence during protests that took place in August 2013 in the Ramsis area of Cairo. Amnesty International has established that he is innocent of the charges and designated Ibrahim a prisoner of conscience.  A new trial has been scheduled to start on 1 December. If convicted he could face the death penalty.
