Truth for Giulio Regeni

Truth for Giulio Regeni: Rally and photocall, Friday 22 April, 3.30pm, King's Parade, Cambridge

Organised by CUAI and Amnesty International Cambridge City Group, supported by Egypt Solidarity Initiative. We will be joined by Daniel Zeichner MP.

Giulio Regeni disappeared on 25 January in Cairo, where he was researching independent trade unions for his PhD in Development Studies at the University of Cambridge. On 3 February his body was found, bearing signs of severe torture which human rights groups say are the hallmarks of the Egyptian security forces.

The Egyptian government denies it had anything to do with his disappearance and murder. Yet what happened to Giulio was not an isolated incident: over 400 unresolved cases of forced disappearance have been documented in Egypt since August 2015. Amnesty International reported nearly 90 cases of torture in the first three months of 2016.
