A judge in Rome is set to decide whether four agents of Egypt’s National Security Agency should face trial for the abduction, torture and murder of Giulio Regeni, an Italian student who was found dead on the outskirts of Cairo five years ago. The prosecutors in December claimed to have found “unequivocal” proof to support pressing charges for kidnapping against General Tariq Sabir, Colonel Usham Helmi, Colonel Athar Kamel Mohamed Ibrahim, and Major Magdi Ibrahim Abdelal Sharif who is also being investigated for injury and murder. On Thursday, a judge in Rome will decide if the findings are solid enough to proceed with the trial, regardless of the agents’ presence.
