He has spent 1,460 days in prison.

Today marks four years since Dubliner Ibrahim Halawa was arrested in Egypt in 2013. 

He was only 17 when he was arrested during a protest in Cairo, and has been in jail ever since. His case is infamous in Ireland, as it has been delayed 28 times before finally going to court - two weeks ago. 

To mark the occasion, there will be a demonstration outside The Egyptian Embassy in Dublin. People are being told to meet at 1pm, where they will stage a protest to show their support for Halawa. 

According to the Journal.ie, Amnesty International will also hold a demonstration at lunchtime outside the Egyptian Embassay and call for his release. 

Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveneny has released a statement about Halawa's situation and has said:

"I am sending a personal message to Ibrahim Halawa today expressing solidarity with him, encouraging him to stay strong and hopeful, and renewing the Government’s promise to him that we will continue to do everything possible to ensure that he is able to return home as soon as possible."

Friends and family of Ibrahim are waiting for more movement of his case in Egypt and are hoping for an immediate release.
