Jeremiah Duggan was 22 when he decided he needed to take a stand against the impending war in Iraq. A student in Paris, he joined a conference in Germany that professed a strongly anti war message. Jeremiah thought he was among kindred spirits, until he discovered that members of the conference seemed to blame the Jews and the British for starting the war. Confused, Jeremiah spoke out. Just a few hours later he was found dead on an autobahn. The cause of his death remains a mystery.

Jeremiah Duggan, a 22 year old British Student studying in Paris, travelled to Germany on the eve of the US invasion of Iraq, to participate in a “peace conference” run by a political organisation called the Schiller Institute (a part of the LaRouche Organization).

During the conference Jeremiah discovered that much of the polemic was directed against the British and the Jews for their supposed role in instigating the war. A war that he was told would set off a nuclear holocaust to destroy the planet and life as we know it. According to eyewitness reports, Jeremiah rose during one such diatribe to say "But I'm a Jew!"

Six days after his arrival in Germany, in the early hours of 27th March 2003, he called his mother in London and said "Mum I'm in deep trouble.  You know this Nouvelle Solidarity [the name of the French branch of LaRouche Organization] -  I want out!" Then he made it clear he was in terror and wanted to get away and said:  "I'm frightened!  I WANT TO SEE YOU NOW!"  I asked him where he was but in the middle of spelling Wiesbaden the line was cut.

The German police decided immediately that this was suicide, stating that Jeremiah had run into the path of cars and they closed the case without further investigation. This conclusion was reached:

  • Without an autopsy.
  • Without forensic examination of his clothing, which the police destroyed without consulting Jeremiah's family.
  • Without taking written statements from the drivers of the two cars said to be involved in Jeremiah's death.

Four independent forensic experts agree that neither the damage to the two cars nor Jeremiah’s injuries support the conclusion that Jeremiah's death was caused by a road traffic incident.


Despite evidence calling into question every aspect of their conclusion, the German police have refused to reopen the case. This is why Jeremiah’s family pressed for a new inquest to be held in Britain which they hope will finally lead to a proper investigation by German authorities and to justice for Jeremiah.
