In Remembrance of Oury Jalloh

Oury Jalloh – Murder was the case in Dessau!

Together with the Kosmotique we call to take part in the demonstration in remembrance of Oury Jalloh organized by the group “Initative Oury Jalloh”. There will be a bus going from Dresden to Dessau and back. Meetingpoint for the bus is 11 a.m. at Großenhainer Platz (St. Petri Kirche) in Dresden. The demonstartion will start at 2 p.m. at the mainstation in Dessau-Roßlau.

On 1/7/2005 the Sierra Leonean Oury Jalloh was burnt in a police cell in Dessau, Germany, locked on by hands and feet on a hardly inflammable security mattress. Although the murder of Oury Jalloh is evident, the white policemen who are the only possible culprits were never accused of murder or manslaughter. For years, instead, it was maintained, that Oury Jalloh had set himself on fire with a lighter.
Nevertheless, this lighter was not found during the search of the cell but appeared later. It showed no tracks of contact with Oury Jallohs body, his clothes or the mattress on which he had lain. For many years the Initiative Oury Jalloh organises a demonstration in remembrance of his death in Dessau.
