At Forum 2017 the journalist, a former Egypt correspondent, reconstructed the case of the young researcher killed at Caito: an affair that, after two years, is still full of question marks
Among the themes addressed at the Mediterranean Women Journalists Forum 2017 was the commitment to the search for truth: truth for Daphne Caruana Galizia, to whom this second edition was dedicated, and for anyone who fights for the defense of values such as legality and peace.
Among them Giulio Regeni, not a journalist but a researcher, kidnapped in Cairo on the evening of Jan. 25, 2016, and found dead nine days later on the far outskirts of the Egyptian city: tortured by his torturers, Giulio was almost unrecognizable.
“No one ever thought an Italian would end up like the Egyptian activists”: at Forum 2017, the Regeni case was addressed by Laura Cappon, a RAI journalist who worked as a Cairo correspondent for four years, reporting on post-revolution Egypt. He has collaborated and continues to collaborate with Italian newspapers (Il Fatto Quotidiano, Panorama and others) and international newspapers such as Al Jazeera English. For Rai 3 he worked in the editorial staff of Islam, Italy, the program hosted by Gad Lerner.
Relentlessly committed to demanding justice for the young researcher, she contributed to the TG1 Special “Giulio Regeni, the Body of the Crime.”
