Ibrahim Halawa has been welcomed home by Laois TD and Minister for Justice & Equality Charlie Flanagan.

Minister Flanagan worked during his time as Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade to have the Irish man freed from jail in Egypt.

“I am delighted that Ibrahim Halawa has returned home to his family in Ireland after a long and extremely difficult ordeal in Egypt.

“I have met the Halawa family many times and I know they have longed for the day when Ibrahim would be back in Dublin with his family. This is a very special day for Ibrahim and his loved ones.

“During Ibrahim’s time in prison he received exceptional levels of consular care from officials in Cairo and Dublin; I thank all those involved.

“I wish Ibrahim all the best for the future,” said the Laois TD.
