You trust the word of a military junta over that of an internationally respected human rights group?

Where did I say I don't consider him an equal citizen?

He is from a family of political troublemakers in that part of the world so it is not really a shock that the Egyptian authorities would take more of an interest in him and his family.

But I am sure they are worth money to some human rights lawyers out there somewhere.

Again, why are you ignoring the question?

What more do you want the government to do?

Invade Egypt just for a lad who if he had his way would have Ireland in the grip of sharia law.

The bit where you talked about him "magically" laying claim to being Irish.

This is not a case of the authorities "taking an interest in him". He is being held without due process and being denied access to justice.

You're wasting your time pointy, self-loathing liberals that hate their country will always bury their head in the sand, and swallow whatever the useful idiots at Amnesty et al tell them.

They will never admit there is a 5th column operating here to bring down the state.

Here a muslim cleric describes a meeting with some of Halawa's buddies.......

I don't loathe myself at all, and I am a great fan of my country, and its citizens. That is why I object to them being mistreated and jailed without due process.

Why do you claim that the people in that Indo article are buddies of Halawa?

Well see when he was addressing the crowd at the gathering in Egypt he was calling himself and Egyptian citizen.
