Govt must react to 'outrageous set-up' - Regeni parents (2)

Staging 'cost lives of five people'

(ANSA) - Rome, March 25 - The parents of Giulio Regeni on Friday told ANSA they were "wounded and embittered by the umpteenth attempt at a cover-up on the part of the Egyptian authorities" and they were "certain of the firmness with which our government will react to this outrageous set-up". They noted that their son was "barbarically" killed after being "abducted in Cairo exactly two months ago, after which his body was discovered after eight days of torture". Cairo authorities have said Regeni was the victim of a kidnap gang whose five members were killed Thursday. Regeni's parents went on "we are certain of the firmness with which our government will react to this outrageous set-up which, furthermore, cost the lives of five people, just as we know that the institutions, our prosecutors and individual citizens will not leave us alone to ask and demand truth. That is owed not only to Giulio but to the dignity of this country".
