We were appalled by the murder of Giulio Regeni in Cairo and we continue to monitor the investigation into his death. As Mr Regeni was an Italian citizen, the Italian Government is taking the lead role on his case. We have consistently raised our concerns with the Egyptian authorities at both Ministerial and official levels, stressing the need for a full and impartial investigation into the circumstances of Mr Regeni's murder. We continue to offer our full support to Italy and urge the Egyptian Government to cooperate fully with the Italian investigators in order to bring Mr Regeni's killers to justice as soon as possible.
