The Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan says she’s very concerned about the mental condition of Ibrahim Halawa, the young Irishman imprisoned in Egypt since August 2013. The 20 year old saw his trial postponedfor the 15th (fifteenth) time on October 2. His case has been adjourned until November 12. He was arrested in Cairo in 2013 after Egyptian authorities claimed he took part in violent protests in a mosque there. The young man could face a death penalty if he is convicted. Lynn Boylan says Mr Halawa is now refusing to see visitors and that his hopes of a resolution to his on-going incarceration are fading.
Out words: 12th November
