Cairo –Egypt’s Public Prosecutor agreed to allow experts from Italy and a German company to retrieve and examine CCTV footage related to the last year’s murder of Italian citizen in Egypt.
Egypt’s state TV aired on Monday an ‘exclusive’ footage of slain Italian student Giulio Regeni, speaking to the head of a Cairo street vendors’ independent union.
The public prosecutor’s office said on Sunday that it has approved a request from Italy to send in experts, as well as data recovery experts from Germany. The step is a part of the investigation that was marred by sometimes contradictory accounts from the authorities.
Italian student Giulio Regeni was a 28-year-old Cambridge Ph.D. student conducting his research on the nature of political and economic developments in Cairo, and particularly on the conditions of labour unions – a contentious issue in Egypt. He disappeared on the fifth anniversary of the 25 January Revolution, according to his friends.
On 3 February 2016 or nearly 10 days after he disappeared, his body was found dumped on the roadside on the outskirts of Cairo in the Giza suburb of 6th of October City, showing signs of torture including cigarette burns, bruises, cuts and multiple stab wounds, according to security sources and medical autopsy.
In September 2016, prosecutors said that police investigated Mr Regeni shortly before his abduction, torture and murder, but the inquiry was dropped after concluding he posed no threat.No one has been arrested over Regeni’s death, hough in March 2016 Egyptian authorities said they had found a criminal gang responsible for his kidnapping and murder.
All the gang members were killed in a shoot-out, they said. The reports were branded “doubtful” by academics who have criticized the Egyptian authorities.
