Ibrahim Halawa has been acquitted of all charges

Halawa and his three sisters have been acquitted of all charges at their trial today in Cario's special anti-terrorism court.

After the mass trial was adjourned for the 25th time in August, news of his acquittal was announced by Colm O'Gorman of Amnesty International, who wrote via Twitter:

Halawa had been imprisoned since 2013, during which time he was arrested for participating in a peaceful protest against the removal of the then-Egyptian President Muhammed Morsi.

His three sisters were acquitted of their charges while on bail.

Halawa is expected to be released in the coming days.
