The mother of a 22-year-old north London student whose body was found on a motorway in Germany has criticised a new investigation launched in Germany.

Jeremiah Duggan, of Golders Green, was found near Wiesbaden in March 2003. German police found he killed himself.

Erica Duggan said a new German probe in 2012 gave the family hope, but “nothing has changed” in 11 years and accused the police of “institutional racism”.

At a pre-inquest review she called for “a proper investigation in Germany”.

The body of Jeremiah Duggan, who was a student at the British Institute and the Sorbonne in Paris, was said to have been found after he attended a youth event organised by the far-right, “cult like” LaRouche group in March 2003. He believed he was attending a protest against the war in Iraq.
