Egypt hands Italy documents belonging to Regeni

Egypt scores points with Europe on Regeni and human rights: Italian foreign minister Paolo Gentiloni reacted positively to developments in the investigation into Giulio Regeni’s case, following his last week’s statement that the case was “an open wound” for Italy. Giulio’s documents were returned to his family. The work continues to establish the truth,” Gentiloni tweeted after Italy’s Deputy Chief Prosecutor Sergio Colaiocco’s visit to Egypt, according to ANSA. During the visit, the Egyptian prosecution handed over Regeni’s passport, his Cambridge University ID cards, and ATM card to Italian prosecutors.

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi had promised to personally follow developments on the Regeni investigation, said MEP Marisa Matias who headed A delegation from the European Parliament – apparently the first such visit since 2009, Al Mal reports. The delegation also noted their support of the committee formed to look into releasing young detainees, according to an Ittihadiya statement reported by the newspaper.
