BREAK THE SILENCE
CLARIFICATION, JUSTICE, RESTITUTION
How is it possible that a human being can lose his life in a jail cell, burned alive in a so-called 'security tract', and the circumstances regarding his death remain a mystery two years later? The unanswered questions regarding Oury Jalloh's death are as numerous as they are shocking.
Even more unfathomable, however, is the complete lack of clarification on the part of the State Prosecutor and the obstructions of the District Court of Dessau.
On the 7th of January, 2006, Oury Jalloh was taken into 'protective detention' by the Dessau Police, where he die an excruciating death; burned alive while 'fixed' at his hands and feet to the wall and floor.
On the 6th of May, 2005, the State Prosecutor of Dessau formally filed charges against two police officers, one for bodily harm resulting in death and the other for negligent homicide. All other possibilities have been excluded from the State Prosecutor's accusation.
Nearly 2 years since Oury Jalloh's death
and more than one and half years after accusation by the State
Prosecutor the Court accepted to take on the case at the
2nd january 2007 against one of the policemen. The court case will take
