The sentencing of the 21 year old Irish citizen and is expected to be delivered today after the trial was adjourned for the 25th time last month.
Halawa has been held in a Cairo jail since 2013 after he and 494 other individuals were accused of murders, bombings, possession of firearms, desecration of Al Fatah Mosque and violence against police. Arrested while taking part in a protest against the removal of then-president Mohammed Morsi, Halawa may face the death penalty if found guilty.
Writing on Facebook last night, Halawa said, "My freedom is in the hands of an oppressor. This time I don't fear the trial... I've lost hope. Not being free but in the Egyptian government to free me. All I can do is pray."
