The London mother who has spent 16 years fighting a shadowy antisemitic conspiracy group over her son’s death is pushing to have the case reopened in Germany after a Wiesbaden court announced it was closing its inquiry.
Jeremiah Duggan was a 23-year-old British Jewish student whose body was found by the side of a motorway in Wiesbaden, Germany, on March 27, 2003. Erica Duggan, his mother, had spoken to him 25 minutes earlier in a troubling conversation in which Jeremiah told her he was frightened and needed help to leave.
German police insisted that Jeremiah had committed suicide, running onto the motorway where he was struck by cars, but the Duggan family never accepted this. They believe that he was murdered — and that the Lyndon LaRouche far-right political organisation, long said to be profoundly antisemitic — played a part in his death, to the point of persuading people not to speak or give evidence.
Ms Duggan, a South African-born former schoolteacher living in Golders Green, has tried almost every legal avenue open to her to discover what really happened to Jeremiah in 2003. And this month, with the death of Lyndon LaRouche himself, aged 96, she hopes that the organisation he headed will be weakened and that some key witnesses will finally admit that they lied about Jeremiah’s whereabouts.
He was studying in Paris when he was persuaded by a LaRouche recruiter to come with him to Wiesbaden and attend a conference supposedly aimed at promoting world peace.
