Egypt’s prosecution has sent the results of its investigations into slain Italian student Giulio Regeni to the office of the Ministry of International Cooperation, ahead of presenting these findings to the Italian side, a judicial source said Friday.

The body of Regeni, a PhD student who was conducting research on independent trade union movements in Egypt, was found with signs of torture on a roadside on the outskirts of Cairo early in February, nine days after he disappeared on 25 January.

The culprit is yet to be identified.

The documents include statements made by his friends in Egypt as well as statements from the last person Giulio spoke with before his disappearance on 25 January.

It also includes a call log, acquired from the telecommunications company, a list of places he used to frequent, and people who used to visit his house or meet him outside.

The source added that the prosecution is willing to share all the case information with the Italian investigation team.
