An Italian court decided to suspend the trial of four Egyptian police officers, accused of killing Italian researcher Giulio Rihini, and ordered the papers to be returned to the preliminary investigative judge.

The court feared that the officers might not know that they were accused, which would invalidate the proceedings.

Regeni’s family and lawyers described the decision as a “setback.”

The trial of the four officers in absentia was scheduled to begin Thursday in the Italian capital, Rome, in the presence of Regeni’s parents.
