“We’ll do what it takes,” Egyptian Oil Minister Tarek el Molla said Wednesday in Ravenna, about the investigation into the murder of Giulio Regeni. He was speaking on the sidelines of the Offshore Mediterranean Conference. “[Egypt] will not give up until the case is solved.”
“The government maintains the strongest focus on the Regeni case,” he continued. “Great strides in collaboration between the Italian and Egyptian prosecution have been achieved. The Italian counterpart will visit Egypt in early April to finalize the delivery of the requested documents.” This is a reference to the 10 interviews to officials of various levels within the National Security apparatus, requested by the Italian prosecutor in a letter in mid-March.
These government statements show nothing new. But this time, the speaker is the representative of the Egyptian interests in the energy field, the man in contact with the international giants.
