More than five years after an Italian students body was found in Cairo, a Rome judge says four senior Egyptian security official should face trial over his kidnap, torture and murder
Guilio Regent, a Cambridge University postgraduate student disappeared in January 2016
His body was so badly disfigured, his Mother could barely identify him
Reports say the four members of the Egyptian security forces are unlikely to travel to Rome for the fourteen October trial
The murder has heightened tensions between the two countries Italian and Egyptian investigators had originally tried to work on the case together, but when Rome prosecutors pushed for a trial in late 2020, their counterparts in Cairo said there was insufficient evidence to support the accusation in court
Egypt said evidence had been found that Regeni has been robbed by a criminal gang, but that the killer had not been identified.
