Cameron Must Urge Sisi to End Mass Death Sentences

LONDON - David Cameron must use a visit by Egypt’s President Sisi to urge an end to mass trials and death sentences for political prisoners, including an Irish teenager held since 2013, human rights organization Reprieve has said.

President Sisi is expected to visit London later this week for talks with the Prime Minister. Since seizing power in July 2013, he has overseen the handing down of thousands of death sentences in mass trials of political protestors, journalists, and others. Among them is a teenager from Dublin, Ibrahim Halawa, who is assisted by Reprieve.
