“Justice for Jeremiah?”
Date: Tuesday, 30 June 2015 at 13.00
Location: Chamber of Solicitors: Serdar Kaya &Christian Noll
10719 Berlin. Germany.
A meeting is to be held to discuss the verdict of the recent British Inquest into the suspicious death of Jeremiah Duggan and to discuss what should be the outcome of the findings that were revealed.
Hans-Christian Ströbele, German Politician for the Green party (parliamentary duties allowing) will address the wider issues this case rises. Ursula Caberta, former politician and State Official for Hamburg and expert on Cults will draw attention to the dangers of political cults.
The lawyers for the Duggan family will reveal their future plans to support the efforts of Erica Duggan to get a proper, independent and far reaching investigation into her son’s death.
After years of legal action in 2012 an extremely rare court order by the Frankfurt High Court ( OLG- Oberlandsgericht) verdict was critical of the way the death had not been properly investigated. Despite this verdict, the Wiesbaden Prosecution office contacted the self same police detective who was responsible for the case in 2003, despite his destroying vital evidence in the beginning. He was then appointed, despite legal complaints being made.
• The Duggan family’s lawyers will make public their letter urging the Wiesbaden Prosecutor to take into account the findings of the British Inquest and as a matter of urgency instigate a wide-ranging, unbiased investigation.
• Hans-Christian Ströbele and Ursula Caberta will speak.
• Erica Duggan will outline the obstacles faced during her 12 year campaign to achieve a proper investigation. She will give a report on the scope covered by the British Inquest and what was revealed about Jeremiah being under attack. This will include reports on the LaRouche cult and how it posed a threat to Jeremiah and his safety.
How the difficulties that the families in the NSU cases have experienced has also been experienced by the Duggan family. There is a lack of any workable mechanism for an independent police complaints commission in Germany. This can clearly be shown in the respect of the failure to properly investigate the death of Jeremiah. How the problems of institutional failure persists to this day.
• Questions will be raised about why a political cult with its European headquarters in Wiesbaden, that carries responsibility for inciting hatred and spreading anti-Semitic and anti-British conspiracy theories throughout the world, is apparently granted immunity by the German state.
• The difficulties arising in dealing with cases like this that concern different countries, where preserving diplomatic relations come before the interest of Truth and Justice will be discussed.

28th March 2011 After the Prosecutor has repeatedly refused to see Erica Duggan or her lawyers an open letter was delivered at the Justice Offices in Wiesbaden which outlines the importance of instigating investigations into the compelling new information contained in witness statements. The Prosecutor has admitted she is too busy to read the files. Click here
Case now taken to the Court of Human Rights.
On the 5th August 2010 Erica Duggan took the case to the Court of Human Rights accusing Germany of violating article 2 because they failed to investigate sufficiently. No witness statements were taken, no medical examinations of injuries, no post mortem, the destruction of vital evidence and a disregard for how the LaRouche leader had Jeremiah’s blood- stained passport.

On 1st April 2010, Channel 4 aired 'Lost Abroad: A Parent's Story', a documentary focussing on two stories of a parent's battle to find justice for a child who was killed abroad. The film documents much of the campaign over the past year, as well as providing background information on the case:
In November 2009, the month that should have seen Jeremiah Duggan's 29th birthday, supporters of the Justice for Jeremiah campaign joined together to take part in a supper quiz to raise much needed funds. The supper quiz raised over £2200 and a great time was had by all.

On 27th March 2009, supporters of the Justice for Jeremiah campaign travelled to Wiesbaden, Germany, to commemorate the 6 year anniversary of Jeremiah's death. Amongst the events and meetings held, Jeremiah's friends and family walked the five and a half kilometres believed to be Jeremiah's final journey. Locals of Wiesbaden were shocked and saddened to hear what had happened in their hometown and offered their support.

On Friday 17th October 2008, supporters of the Justice for Jeremiah campaign participated in an international forum in Berlin asking 'Does the Larouche Group Pose a Threat to Individuals and a Danger to Society?' Here, it was agreed by politicans from Britain and Germany as well as academics from both sides of the Atlantic that the Larouche group is indeed a threat to individuals and to the state. This provided a public recognition that Jeremiah Duggan had been involved in a dangerous group at the time of his suspicious death.
