8 December, 2015 - by Lynn Boylan MEP


Dublin Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has welcomed the news that the majority of political groups in Europe have indicated that they will agree to her proposal for an urgent resolution on the Ibrahim Halawa case.

Lynn Boylan said:

"The resolution will be discussed on the 17th of December in Strasbourg and I welcome the support of my fellow Irish MEPS in their respective groups.

"We hope that this resolution will ultimately be unnecessary and that Ibrahim will be released on his next hearing on the 15th of this month.

"Those that wish to demonstrate their support for Ibrahim on the occasion of his 20th birthday can join the peaceful gathering outside the Egyptian embassy, this Sunday the 13th of December at 1pm.”
