Representatives from rights group Amnesty International will on Wednesday take part in a hearing of a committee of Italian MPs probing researcher Giulio Regeni's unsolved 2016 murder in Egypt, the parliament said in a statement on Monday.

Amnesty representatives will join the hearing by video link and the event will be broadcast live from the parliament's website, the statement said.

Widespread suspicions that Egyptian security forces were responsible for his disappearance and murder were reinforced in 2018 when Italian prosecutors named five officials as suspects.

Italian prosecutors have accused Egyptian officials of deliberately trying to mislead the investigation into student Giulio Regeni's death.

The Egyptian government has vowed to solve the case.
