Italian Commission Says Egypt Responsible for Death of Giulio Regeni

The Italian Parliamentary Commission has blamed members of Egypt’s National Security for killing Italian student Giulio Regeni

The Italian Parliamentary Commission report that was published after two years of investigations blamed the killing on members of Egypt’s National Security.

“Responsibility for the abduction, torture and murder of Giulio Regeni rests directly with the security apparatus of the Arab Republic of Egypt, and in particular with members of the National Security,” the commission said in its final report.

Italian investigators have stated that Egyptian secret service agents tortured Regeni for days by “burning him, kicking him, hitting him with their fists, and using knives and sticks.”

Egypt has always refused to provide the Italian justice system with their details and denies Italy’s allegations, according to the report.

“It is time to remind Egypt of its responsibilities as a state, which are very clear and significant regarding the fate of Giulio Regeni and go beyond the significant responsibilities of its agents” the cross-party Italian Commission said.

Regeni was abducted by unknown assailants in the suburbs of Cairo in January 2016 and his mutilated body was found a few days later – he was 28-year-old.
