Parl't committee advises adoption of calm diplomacy in Regeni’s murder case

Tuesday، 19 July 2016 - 02:21 PM

A parliamentary tripartite committee, made up of the defense, human rights and foreign relations committees, concerned with following up the murder case of Italian student Giulio Regeni, recommended that any measures taken on the file should be under “calm parliamentary diplomacy” away from “confrontational diplomacy.”


Speaking to reporters on Monday 18/7/2016 following a committee meeting, its chairman Kamal Amer said among the set recommendations was a plan to exchange visits and delegations between the Egyptian parliament and all European parliaments, especially the French, UK, Greek and Italian ones, to promote the role of parliamentary diplomacy.


A crisis management group will be formed from all ministries concerned with the murder of Regeni, Amer said.


Regeni, a 28-year-old postgraduate student, disappeared on January 25 in Egypt. His body was found on February 3, dumped on the side of a road outside Cairo.


Last month, the Italian Senate voted to halt supplies to Egypt of some spare parts for warplanes in protest against the killing of Regeni.
