British Lawyers Call on Egypt to Release Tortured Irish Student

Reprieve

An eminent group of British lawyers has called on Egypt’s government to release an Irish student who faces the death penalty in a mass trial.

In a report published today, the Bar Human Rights Committee called for “the immediate transfer” of 20-year old Ibrahim Halawa to his home country, Ireland, and said that Egypt’s treatment of him “constitutes a serious breach of international law.”

It's a good thing the poor kid wasn't an American as that country would have a difficult time asking for his release when it has broken International Law so many times in the same way that Egypt is breaking it, that any demand for his release would be considered to be grossly hypocritical!
