“I am delighted with the news that Ibrahim has been released.

“Ibrahim was illegally detained for more than four years and for a further month after he was cleared of all charges.

“I now look forward to him returning home to his family and hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.

“It is important that Ibrahim has the proper supports available to him in order to begin the process of rebuilding his life.”
