Egypt thought Italian student was British spy, tortured and murdered him: report

ROME - Egyptian police arrested and beat an Italian student who was later found murdered because they thought he was a British spy, according to fresh testimony reported by Italian newspapers on Sunday. The account of how Giulio Regeni, a 28-year-old doctoral researcher at Britain’s Cambridge University, disappeared in Cairo in January 2016 came from a witness who overheard an Egyptian intelligence agent speaking about “the Italian guy,” La Repubblica newspaper said.

The conversation about the tumultuous situation in Egypt in Arabic took place at a police convention in an unnamed African country in 2017 and was related to Italian prosecutors who have now asked Egyptian authorities for more information. The Italian foreign ministry tweeted Sunday that it “supports the Rome prosecutor’s request for information, in the strong hope that it contributes to the path of justice for Giulio Regeni.”

The unnamed eavesdropper learned the Egyptian’s name when he exchanged business cards with a colleague, La Repubblica said.

He was one of five agents Italian prosecutors said in December last year that they were investigating for involvement in the murder of Regeni, who disappeared on his way to a Cairo metro station on January 25.

Playing Cat and Mouse With Venezuela's Internet Censors

https://twitter.com/ForeignPolicy/status/1125188432802787334

Somehow, I don't think Maduro censoring the internet will be profiled on Democracy Now, The Nation or The Intercept anytime soon... Any of our resident Maduro defenders care to take this?

Or does the end justify the means?
