In March 2018, the Irish man Ibrahim Halawa who spent more than 4 years in prison in Egypt, came to the European Parliament in Strasbourg to talk about his experiences behind bars. He also wanted to thank the MEPs for voting for a resolution in 2015 calling for his release. During his visit to the European Parliament I met Ibrahim and the Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan who had played an active role in getting the 2015 resolution through the Parliament. You can see the full interview on YouTube here or you can just play the below video.
