Free Ibrahim Halawa


On August 17th, 2013 Ibrahim Halawa – an Irish citizen of 17 years at the time – had attended the protests of the 16 and 17 August 2013 in Egypt, against the ousting of the once legitimate president Morsi. Egyptian security forces used brutal force against protesters, using tear gas and gun fire, to the extent that some of them had to take refuge in a mosque.

Ibrahim was among those who sort shelter in the mosque, yet security forces stormed it and opened fire. Ibrahim was shot in the hand, brutally beaten and even denied access to lawyers. He was denied medical treatment of his wounds, which resulted in the deformity of his hand. He was kept in solitary confinement in a cell less than a metre square with no light and no toilet. Prison staff have told him that he will be executed.

Three judges who made up a Court Panel which was due to hear the case against 494 people recused themselves on account of objections raised by the defendants’ lawyers. The trial has been postponed four times, most recently on 8th February 2015 and is due to resume on March 29th 2015.

If convicted Ibrahim could face the death penalty. Please support our brother and do all you can to help him obtain justice.
