    Giulio Regeni missing: British university student vanishes in Cairo on fifth anniversary of Arab Spring

    Cairo, Egypt -
    Fears are growing for a British university student who disappeared in mysterious circumstances in Egypt.

    Cambridge PhD student Giulio Regeni went missing while conducting PhD fieldwork in Cairo.

    Mr Regeni, originally from Italy, has not been seen in Cairo since January 25, the day of demonstrations marking the fifth anniversary of the Arab Spring .

    On Sunday, the Italian Foreign Ministry urged Egyptian authorities to help locate the 28-year-old Girton college member.

    An English translation on the Italian Foreign Ministry's website reads: "The Italian Embassy in Cairo and the Foreign Ministry are closely following with great concern the fate of Giulio Regeni, a 28-year-old student who has mysteriously disappeared on the evening of 25 January in the centre of the Egyptian capital.

    So instead of Islamic terrorists could it be groups allied with the government?

    The likelihood he has been murdered by Egyptian state security is quite high. In fact, I would be very surprised if that is not the case. Authoritarian regimes like Egypt's see academics as being a threat. Egyptian state security is known for imprisoning, torturing, abducting and murdering opponents to the regime. Guilio was a brilliant academic researcher with political contacts and links to many democratic activists. Unfortunately, his death is more likely to be treated as a diplomatic nightmare and the perpetrators will never be held accountable.

    Egyptian police claim to shoot dead the 'real' murderers, who have specialized in impersonating policemen and kidnapping foreigners to steal their money. 'According to Egypt, a gang just happened, after two months, to still have Giulio's bag and IDs safely preserved and easily retrievable during a shoot out' said Paz Zarate, a friend of Regeni's.

    While it's plausible that there are criminals who impersonate police and steal foreigners' money; it's not plausible they would systematically torture their victims. This just looks like a coverup.

    Perps do not even have to impersonate anybody, they will just take and do whatever they want to whomever they want, to steal from and mess up, imo.
    Could this vicious attack be more personal than political?
    Could it be a case of mistaken identity?
    speculation.

    I think the family should pick out some photos and show them. Why shield the world from what happens in dictatorial governments? If anything we should know more so young people are not seduced by pretty words from psychopaths.
