Di Maio: words are no longer enough, we are working tirelessly (ANSA)



There is the word "truth" to illuminate this evening in Fiumicello (Udine). It is made up of 4 thousand small candles, placed on the ground, on a flower bed, next to each other. A thousand for each past year without knowing the truth about Giulio Regeni. On January 25, 2016 at 7.41 pm the young researcher from Friuli sent his last message from Cairo. Then he disappeared. Nothing was known of him until February 3, when his tortured body was found abandoned on a road between the capital and Alexandria in Egypt. A drama on which the family demands truth and justice.
A "state issue" for the President of the Chamber, Roberto Fico, tonight in Fiumicello, which invites the institutions to "be a single voice" and hopes that "2020 will be the year of truth". And the foreign minister, Luigi Di Maio, in a post on Facebook, says he is convinced "that words are no longer enough.
We work tirelessly for the truth. There is all my commitment - assures Di Maio - and that of the government ".
"January 25, 2016 - January 25, 2020 ... 4 years ... heartfelt thanks to those around us ... !!!!", Giulio's mother Paola Deffendi wrote on Fb this morning. And tonight, with her husband Claudio and daughter Irene, she participates in the torchlight procession in Fiumicello, the researcher's hometown, together with the "big family" who asks for steps forward in the investigation into the murder.
It is a community that tightens in silence and that at 19.41 will raise the torches to heaven, thinking of him.
In the square, among hundreds of people, there are the President of the Commission of Inquiry, Erasmo Palazzotto, and that of the Chamber, Roberto Fico. "I am here because the state is right that there is - he said - 2020 must be the year of truth, the year in which decisive steps are taken towards truth. The institutions must coordinate and be a single voice for carry on what is a matter of state, which will never be abandoned, until we get the culprits of the killing of Giulio Regeni ". Fico also attended the procession. At each stop the children, members of the Youth Government (Cittadinanzattiva initiative), remembered one of the rights of the childhood. A direct line between Fiumicello and over one hundred Italian squares that tonight, from north to south, have turned yellow, the color of Amnesty International.
The Regeni demand "that this government call the ambassador from Cairo. And involve the EU in declaring Egypt an unsafe country". While the Prosecutor of Rome continues to work to bring to light what happened in Egypt, a Commission of Inquiry into the death of Giulio has been set up in Parliament: "We have brought to light elements that until now had not been told - explained this morning to 'ANSA Sabrina De Carlo (M5S) - and we will soon proceed with other hearings ". Other teams also ask for progress. "After so many governments that have passed in 4 years, it is shameful that the truth has not yet been found", says Stefano Pedica (Pd). "Shedding light on the tragedy suffered by Giulio and supporting parents also means dealing with new generations, human rights, work, study and research", observes Pietro Grasso (Leu). For Massimiliano Fedriga, president of Fvg, "remember the fourth anniversary of the kidnapping and the barbaric killing without having shed any light on the facts and the guilty were indignant and grieved to justice".
