STORY: "Golders Green mother fights for justice for son, Jeremiah Duggan," by reporters Anna Slater and Megan Jula,  published by the Times Series, on May 28, 2014:

GIST: "A mother fighting for justice for her son who died in mysterious circumstances in Germany accused investigators of “institutional racism” at an inquest today. Jeremiah Duggan’s mother Erica, of Golders Green, told Barnet Coroners Court how she has spent the harrowing 11 years since her son’s death without answers as to how he died.........At a pre-inquest review hearing this morning, Coroner Andrew Walker agreed to hold a formal inquest into his death next year. Addressing the court, Mrs Duggan said: “They told me it was Jeremiah’s goodbye call, and that I didn’t know my son. I knew from that phone call he wanted to stay alive. It wasn't a suicide. “When we arrived in Germany, it was quite clear the case had been on the spot closed. “The law in Germany has let us all down. It’s institutional racism, they don’t see what they don’t want to see.” In December 2012, the Higher Court in Hessen told the Wiesbaden Police Department they had failed in their duties to properly investigate. But Mrs Duggan, who has two daughters, claims the same police officer who presided over her son’s death in 2003 was asked to conduct “another deeply flawed and corrupt investigation”. She added: “It’s been a sham investigation. “In my mind, the investigators destroyed evidence – they destroyed his shoes and his clothes.""
