Calls for Attorney General to reopen case after new evidence unveiled:
The Early Day Motion is now registered in Parliament. It is supported by a cross party group of MPs, including Simon Hughes, the Lib Dems Justice Minister.
All supporters of the Justice For Jeremiah Campaign will ask their MPs to support the motion.
REGISTERED on 12th May 2007 BY THE FOLLOWING MPS:
EARLY DAY MOTION: 1498 : That this House is dismayed by the suspicious death of Jewish student and British national Jeremiah Duggan, in Wiesbaden, Germany on 27th March 2003; notes that the initial verdict of suicide given by the German coroner was rejected by a British inquest in 2003; is concerned that since that time in spite of all attempts by Duggan's family to obtain a full investigation this has been refused; further notes that compelling forensic evidence published in March 2007 on the fourth anniversary of Duggan's death casts doubt on the current version of events; believes that a further investigation of the case is now urgently required; calls on the Attorney General to support the application for a new UK inquest; urges the Attorney General to liaise with his German counterpart as a matter of urgency to establish the truth; and further calls on the Government to ensure that, with the assistance of Mutual Aid Treaties, a full investigation into Duggan's death is carried out.
On 22nd June 2007 56 Members had signed the Petition - see:http://edmi.parliament.uk/EDMi/EDMDetails.aspx?EDMID=33287&SESSION=885
