The Egyptian authorities have dismissed concerns from UN human rights experts over an Irish juvenile who faces the death penalty in a mass trial.
The Irish government has faced criticism after it was forced to correct a statement on the whereabouts of Ibrahim Halawa, a juvenile from Dublin who faces the death penalty in Egypt.
Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee (FAC) has said it will monitor the case of a British father held in Ethiopia, among other cases, amid concerns that the government has lessened its commitment to ending human rights abuses abroad.
The guilty verdicts handed down to three Al Jazeera journalists are an affront to justice which sounds the death knell for freedom of expression in Egypt, says Amnesty.
Egypt’s President, General Abdel-Fattah al Sisi, has said he wants to change the law to allow for quicker executions in the country.
A crackdown by the Egyptian authorities is “crushing an entire generation” of young activists, says a new report from Amnesty International.
A mass trial of 494 protestors in Egypt, including an Irish teen facing the death penalty, has been postponed for the eighth time in nearly two years.
The government refuses to reveal which UK businesses accompanied it on a recent trade visit to Egypt, as concerns grow for an Irish teenager facing execution in Cairo.
Egypt’s President has told the World Economic Forum that he has “hope” in the country’s youth, despite evidence his government has imprisoned hundreds of minors.
An Egyptian court’s call for a retrial of three jailed Al Jazeera journalists leaves them still unjustly incarcerated, Amnesty says.
