Giulio Regeni, a 28-year-old postgraduate student, disappeared on January 25. His body was found on February 3, dumped on the side of a road outside Cairo, and showing signs of torture.
The findings reportedly point to interrogation methods such as burning with cigarettes, the strongest indication yet that Giulio Regeni was killed by Egyptian security services.
Egypt has shut down the Nadeem Center for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence and say it was operating outside its legal mandate — human rights say it was one of the few organizations that confronted the government over torture allegations.
VICE News spoke to friends and colleagues of Giulio Regeni, an Italian academic and Cambridge PhD student who was murdered in Egypt while conducting research on trade unions.
