The family of a student who died in Germany has welcomed a new inquest into his death. Dates for the inquest into the death of 22-year-old Jeremiah Duggan, from Golders Green, has been set for March 17, 18 and 19 next year.
Jeremiah, a 22-year-old student at the Sorbonne in Paris, was found dead by the side of a motorway in Wiesbaden in Germany on March 27, 2003.
He had been attending what he believed was a protest against the Iraq war, which turned out to be a youth event organised by the extremist right wing LaRouche group.
An hour before his body was discovered, Mr Duggan had phoned his mother saying his life was in danger. Speaking at a pre-inquest review this morning at North London Coroners Court, Jeremiah’s mother Erica said the inquest was of great public interest.
