Giulio’s “mean” teacher

23 March 2016

EFD Senior Fellow Valentina Colombo talks about the murder of Giulio Regeni, the Italian student who was in Egypt to conduct a research paper on the current status of the Egyptian government. His body was found with marks that indicated torture. This homicide spurred the uprising of a national debate in Italy, one that Colombo has been thoroughly following.

She is quoted in the Italian newspaper Panorama on the issue, with the following remarks: "(..)the increment of terrorism in Egypt is repudiated in Europe, but instead of looking at it as a justification we see it as a consequence of Al-Sisi's barbarian acts".
