Yesterday was Nov. 25, 2016, 10 months after the death of Giulio Regeni. We bitterly note that the fog is dense, so thick that it is difficult see any light, not even the dimmest, to illuminate this history of political crime.
The judicial cooperation between the Prosecutor’s Office in Rome and the Egyptian judiciary is proceeding slowly, and we do not know what fruits it will bear. It seems that there will be a new summit in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the diplomatic pressure of the Italian government should have played against the Egyptian government, if not for respect for human rights on a global scale at least for patriotism, are dangerously stagnant.
We do not know if there ever will be a meeting between the Italian and Egyptian prime ministers. We do not know if the meeting will be collaborative or if the seconds in command will present more nonsense and initial false leads. But we know that the silence of the Italian institutions worries us.
