The mother of a Golders Green student who died mysteriously in Germany in 2003 has had her complaint about the investigation into her son’s death rejected.
Lawyers representing Erica Duggan had filed a complaint accusing German prosecutors of ignoring a court order to reinvestigate the death in December 2012.
Jeremiah Duggan, a 22-year-old Jewish student, was found lying in a road near the city of Wiesbaden with fatal head injuries in 2003.
Ms Duggan believes he came to harm at the hands of a branch of the LaRouche international political movement, a cult suspected of fascist and anti-Semitic beliefs.
Last week, prosecutors rejected her complaint, insisting they did reinvestigate the case. They say her son committed suicide by running into oncoming traffic.
Ms Duggan said: “I don’t believe there is ever going to be a proper investigation by the German authorities.”
