Egypt: Autopsy Shows – Student Tortured By Genital Electrocution

Egypt’s forensics authority handed over to the prosecutor general’s office on Saturday its final autopsy report on the Italian student who was tortured and found dead in Cairo last week.

Giulio Regeni, (age) 28, had been researching independent trade unions in Egypt and had written articles critical of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s government – prompting speculation that he was killed at the hands of Egypt’s security forces.

Egypt’s interior minister Magdy Abdel Ghaffar rejects charges of Egyptian security force involvement in the case of Italian Giulio Regeni, who was found dead bearing signs of torture after disappearing in Cairo last month. Italy demanded on Monday that Egypt catch and punish those responsible for the death of a student found tortured by a roadside in Cairo, and the Egyptian government dismissed suggestions its security services could have been involved.

Egypt’s interior and foreign ministers both dismissed the notion of security forces being behind Regeni’s murder.

The prosecutor general’s office said it would not publicly disclose the contents of the report as the investigation was ongoing. Reuters was not able to obtain a copy to verify the contents (at this time).

However, a senior source at the forensics authority told Reuters Regeni, a graduate student at Britain’s Cambridge University,

  • had seven broken ribs,
  • signs of electrocution on his penis,
  • traumatic injuries all over his body,
  • and a brain hemorrhage. His body also bore signs of
  • cuts from a sharp instrument suspected to be a razor,
  • abrasions, and bruises.
  • assaulted using a stick as well as being
  • punched and
  • kicked.

A second autopsy in Italy “confronted us with something inhuman, something animal“.

Allegations of regular beatings and sleep deprivation were denied by the authorities which said they don’t torture prisoners before they chop their heads off.

Egypt’s initial autopsy report showed Regeni had been hit on the back of the head with a sharp instrument.

Rights groups say police often detain Egyptians on scant evidence and that they are beaten or coerced. Scores have disappeared since 2013, the groups say.

Egypt denies allegations of police brutality.

Regeni was given a funeral in his hometown on Friday and Italy’s prime minister once again insisted that those responsible be caught and punished.

Italy has sent investigators to work with Egyptian authorities in an effort to establish what happened to Regeni.

The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.” The embassy was adamant the event “had nothing to do” with the $15-billion arms deal and said it had been planned for years. Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, however, said it was notified of the “Cultural Days” on Jan. 14. That date was nearly two weeks after mass executions in Saudi Arabia drew public condemnation from the Trudeau government.
