Lack of progress in Regeni probe - EU parliament

'Outrage at murder' says Strasbourg assembly

08 February, 17:23

    STRASBOURG - There has been a lack of progress in the investigation into the torture and murder of Italian student Giulio Regeni in Cairo two years ago, the European parliament said Thursday. In a resolution on executions in Egypt, the Strasbourg assembly "recalls, yet again, its outrage at the torture and murder of Giulio Regeni".

    The resolution "denounces, again, the absence of progress in the investigation into this brutal murder".

    The EP said it would continue to "urge European authorities to work with their Egyptian counterparts until the truth is established in this case and the culprits brought to justice". The resolution voiced a firm condemnation of the use of the death penalty in Egypt and "deep disquiet over collective trials".

    Italy marked the second anniversary of Regeni's disappearance on January 25 with Premier Paolo Gentiloni saying he was not forgotten and Rome prosecutors saying "the one sure thing" is that Egypt's security apparatus was involved.
