A heart-broken mother has won her fight for a full inquest to be held into the mystery death of her son, maintaining the German authorities failed to carry out a proper investigation since the incident 11 years ago.
Jeremiah Duggan, who attended Quainton Hall School in Hindes Road, Harrow, was 22 when he travelled to Wiesbaden, south west Germany in 2003 to what he believed was a peace conference.
The Jewish student had been keen to protest against the Iraq War, and travelled to the two-day event hosted by the extreme right-wing LaRouche movement.
Days later, at 5.25am on March 27, 2003, Jeremiah phoned home saying he was in danger from members of LaRouche, and within an hour his dead body was found beside the road, close to the LaRouche offices, with German police concluding that his death was a suicide 'by means of a traffic accident'.
His mother Erica Duggan then launched the Justice for Jeremiah campaign, and for the last 11 years has fought for answers.
She appeared at North London Coroner's Court on Wednesday for a pre-inquest review at which Coroner Andrew Walker agreed to hold a full inquest into his death next year on the agreement that members from the LaRouche movement would be invited to represent themselves.
Speaking outside the German embassy in front of a congregation of media and Jeremiah's friends, she said: "In the modern state Germany, which purports to set a model example to Europe and the rest of the world, justice has been treated with contempt, because the inalienable, universal human right to a proper investigation in the case of Jeremiah Duggan has been denied."
Both parties will meet in November to agree on which witnesses will be providing evidence.
