The family of Ibrahim Halawa are taking their fight for his freedom to Brussels where they will plead with MEPs for their help.
The Dublin teenager has been held in an Egyptian jail since his arrest at a protest in Cairo over two years ago.
His trial has been repeatedly postponed and human rights groups say they fear for his safety.
Ibrahim's ninth scheduled court appearance was called off earlier this month when two of the defendants failed to appear for the mass trial.
Irish MEP Lynn Boylan has invited the Halawa family to meet her European colleagues, where they will be joined by released prisoner Peter Greste.
"I think most people would be very familiar that himself and his two colleagues were arrested and imprisoned for broadcasting about the protests in Egypt," she said.
"Peter Greste shared a cell with Ibrahim. He wants to do whatever he can to help get this young boy home to his family."
