A former Irish justice minister has called for Egypt's ambassador to be expelled from Dublin unless Ibrahim Halawa is released from a Cairo jail.
Alan Shatter suggested that the Egyptian Ambassador, Soha Gendi, should be removed if Ibrahim Halawa is not released by the end of the week, in a move that would put pressure on the Egyptian government to act.
Ibrahim Halawa should by now be home.The Egytian ambassador shd be threatened with expulsion if Ibrahim is not released by this week's end.
