Egypt's top prosecutor Nabil Sadek is expected to meet on Monday with the Italian Attorney General Giuseppe Buitoni to share with him the results of investigations into the death of Italian student Giulio Regeni.

The body of Regeni, a PhD student who was conducting research on independent trade union movements in Egypt, was found with signs of torture on a roadside on the outskirts of Cairo early in February, nine days after he disappeared on 25 January.

The culprit is yet to be identified.

Buitoni arrived in Cairo following an invitation from the Egyptian side to share the latest developments in the investigations.

The European Parliament called on Egyptian authorities last Thursday to provide Italy with all data necessary for ongoing investigations to unravel the circumstances of Regeni's death.

On 24 February, Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni called on Egypt to cooperate with the Italian investigation team and demanded that Italy be given access to evidence from the prosecutor's office.
