The investigating judge at the Milan public prosecutor's office, Alessandra Cecchelli, ordered the reopening of an investigation to define the reasons behind Imane Fadil’s death. The Moroccan model, who died in March 2019, is a key witness in the Ruby case.

According to Italian media, the decision was a response to the request of the deceased’s family Mirko Mazzali, who requires additional information to establish whether there was medical error or negligence.

Imane Fadil was one of the many young women who attended the «sex parties» hosted by Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. She was also one of the three women who decided to testify in court against the politician. The family believes that Imane Fadil was targeted for the role she played in the trial.

For the record, Fadil felt sick by the end of January 2019, and was admitted to a hospital. According to her family, a «doctor told her that she had probably been poisoned».

While initial tests showed that she had «unexplained and dangerously high levels of cadmium and antimony in her body», the last results revealed that she suffered from aplastic anemia, a sickness believed to be the reason behind her death.
