The motion on the Ibrahim Halawa issue will be discussed at the Foreign Affairs committee meeting on Wednesday
Talk is cheap’ said Senator Daly ‘and visits by Irish officials to the prisons is activity masquerading as action, what this Irish citizen needs is the Taoiseachs government intervention and action. Other countries have managed to get their citizens released after government intervention including Australia”

The governments lacks urgency, recently it has been the case that Foreign Defendants are eligible for deportation to their home countries why has our government failed to pursue this route? Amnesty international report into the Halawa case has shown he is innocent of all charges and should be released ‘ said Senator Daly who is the Fianna Fail Spokesperson for the Irish Overseas and the Diaspora
