CAIRO: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi will meet with a delegation from the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Tuesday, to discuss the murder of Italian researcher Guilio Regeni, an official from Egyptian Presidency told Youm7.
The meetings will tackle the latest developments concerning the investigations into the case, the official added on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to media, noting that both sides will also review the international and regional efforts of counter-terrorism.
Coincidently, Egypt’s Attorney General Office issued Tuesday a statement confirming that an Egyptian delegation will head to Rome Wednesday to update the Italian side on the investigation’s developments.
The Egyptian delegation will be chaired by Attorney-General Aide Mostafa Suleiman and include a group of prosecutors and police officers tasked to probe the crime.
Guilio Regeni, 28, was murdered in late January or early February and the initial investigations revealed signs of torture on his body.
In late March in Shubra, New Cairo, the Egyptian Interior Ministry stated that police had killed four “gang members” suspected of involvement in his killing; they also arrested two other suspects.
