update about the sad & unsolved case of Oury Jalloh
Does German public prosecutor cover murderer in uniform?
By Thomas Occupy. Dessau, 20th December, „The new fire certificate in the case Oury Jalloh is not presented before the 7th of January. The figures, the precise measuring values, are given. Currently the experts are about to draw conclusions from it“, the German newspaper „Mitteldeutsche Zeitung“ cited the speaker of the public prosecutor's office Olaf Braun. Even measuring values are produced already at 18th of August, 2016 in the Saxon Dippoldiswalde, however, the Swiss expert Kurt Zollinger falls ill, Braun has explained. This is why the analysis »announced was from six to eight weeks« is so delayed. (http://www.mz-web.de/dessau-rosslau/brand-nachgestellt-neues-gutachten-im-fall-oury-jalloh-erst-im-januar-25344336)
The speaker of the public prosecutor's office does not give this information to any. Braun refused with the newspaper „junge Welt“ in habitual manner to give useful information. He merely informed: „The expert opinion is not given yet. Besides, the inquiries are not concluded yet. Only then his authority »in the compulsory extent« will take stand on given time.“ The statements of the public prosecutor compared with the newspaper „Mitteldeutsche Zeitung“ raise meanwhile a question: Are there new facts which should not be confessed up to the 7th of January, the 12th day of death of Oury Jalloh, who burned up to the unrecognizability in a Dessauer police cell. On the day not only the town celebrities will think in Dessau of the »tragic casualty«. Also the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh (https://initiativeouryjalloh.wordpress.com/) calls again for a demonstration. For them is certain: This was a murder. For it, there would speak all clues and the toxicological findings.
For 12 years the German justice is not to be called ready to account the murderers. Already in the first trial around Oury Jallohs death the president judge Manfred Steinhoff had deplored: „Police witnesses have lied systematically.“ The whole „has nothing more to do with a constitutional state“. Police, public prosecutor's office and courts work hand in hand against the Innitiative Oury Jalloh and their supporters with suppresions, hassles, trials and so on. The whole story is so terrifying and detailed that a comprehensive reporting is impossible within the scope of a press article.
The summary of my 2014 published fact sheet reads as follow: „On the 7th of January 2005, Oury Jalloh, a 37 year old refugee from Sierra Leone, burned to death in police custody in Germany. He was drunk and had been shackled hand and foot on a fireproof mattress. Two years later, the trial of two on duty police officers began at the Dessau Regional Court. After a 59 day trial, the court found the defendants not guilty in December 2008. "Despite the most intensive efforts," the court had been unable to explain the death, said the presiding judge.“ The whole paper is as pdf for download here.
Already a certificate presented in November, 2013 from the expert Maksim Smirnou had a clear result: Oury Jalloh could not lay the fire himself under no circumstances, but became most probably about five litres of petrol (or another burnable fluid) poured over and lighted by 3rd party. WARNING: The complete study contains also a photograph of the dead Oury Jalloh: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9F6ub8wD7gqRGQ3WDdDN1BtMk0/view. After the publishing of this fire certificate, the responsible prosecutor from Dessau-Roßlau, Folker Bittmann spoke from " partly frightening information". As a result the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh put announcement to the proscecutor because of murder against Unknown. Under this pressurethe public prosecutor's office initiated new inquiries because of suspicion of murder. Anyhow the prosecutor's office still persists on suicide. In 2015, also the British fire expert Iain Peck, even from proscecutors consultants as »extremely experienced« called, explained the fire lapping by third for likely. Numerous indications would speak for the fact that the ostensible suicide lighter never was in the cell and was manipulated therefore, according to Iain Peck, among the rest.
Despite of the constantly raised new questions a renewed fire attempt is also ordered inexpressibly long 3 years later, presumably to slowen the inquiries further or to deliver convenient results to the authorities. For it, a dummy coated with lard was set on fire. 100 sensors, 30 for the temperature and 70 for the aerial analysis, have taped the experiment.
The prestigious Swiss expert Kurt Zollinger of the forensic institute of Zurich received the order to evaluate the data; presumably to keep up the appearances of the seriousness. However, the experiment set-up for the adjustment of the cell fire was carried out by the dubious "expert" certified engineer Thorsten Prein. Representatives of the federal union professional planner and experts for preventive fire prevention „Bundesvereinigung Fachplaner und Sachverständige für vorbeugenden Brandschutz (BFSB)“ have criticised the experiment as "unscientific" and also have discredited Thorsten Prein; he may present in some local authority districts no more fire prevention concepts, because of serious faults. Besides, the lawyers of the sacrificial family reprimanded, the construction has not corresponded to the original terms. Obvious one wanted to generate a stronger fire. Still the result could not be achieved from the scene. At that time the mattress burnt down in the tiled cell within 20 minutes completely, the corpse was found completely charred. „To me occurs in addition only one: The authorities want to prevent a scandal and are under a cover“, Mouctar Bah, the founder of the „initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh commented“ on the experiment.
The new experiment which has taken place in the apparently fictive „institute of fire research and fire-fighting research (Institut für Brand- und Löschforschung - IBLF)“ in the Saxon Schmiedeberg runs result-openly, one said from the public prosecutor's office before hand and to ensure maximum transparency, journalists should be also present with the experiment. It is interesting that such an institute is nowhere registered and the area where the experiment really took place is an industrial ruin which is rented by the owners now and then also for fire prevention attempts.
Up to now, with the newspaper „junge Welt“ the speaker of the public prosecutor's office Olaf Braun ignored all inquiries to the institute and to its leader. „The company is registered as a single trade“, assured brown to the German newspaper „Mitteldeutsche Zeitung“. „This is no windy box.“ Where it is registered then, he did not declare. Also another fact is mysterious: Still in October, 2016 no web page of the „IBLF“ was to be found. Now for few weeks this Facebook page is public: https://www.facebook.com/Institut-f%C3%BCr-Brand-und-L%C3%B6schforschung-1810888845799531/about/. An instituts leader is also not mentioned there. Olaf Braun is quiet about it.
The public fire experiment in August, 2016 had surprised media representative and the lawyers of the sacrificial family. It can be evaluated as a reaction to the fact that from the Oury Jalloh initiative independently consultd experts from Ireland, Great Britain and Canada had promoted massive contradictions in the official version of Oury Jallohs death after which it concerned a suicide up to now.
Beside many other points, based on the following 3 facts, I asume, that the responsible prosecutor from Dessau-Roßlau, Folker Bittmann is not willing to proscecute the murder of Oury Jalloh.
- Because the public prosecutor's office refused X-rays of the corpse, the initiative „in memory of Oury Jalloh“ arranged at own expenses the second autopsy in Frankfurt am Main. Among the rest, there cranial fractures were also ascertained.
- The scene group of the land criminal office (LKA) Saxony-Anhalt protects in the day of Oury Jallohs death, 7th of January 2005 at about 4 pm the traces – selectively and incompletely. They does not find a lighter. Only two days after the first examination of the cell there appear leftovers of a lighter with which Jalloh itself should have lighted himself. The land criminal office of Saxony-Anhalt had examined the lighter extensively. It were able to prove neither DNA tracks of Jallohs nor fabric leftovers to clothes or the mattress on which he lay. Investigators of the land criminal office of Stuttgart found some polyester fibers with a further examination. The British fire expert Iain Peck who examined the leftovers of the lighter by order of the "initiative in the memory of Oury Jalloh " also found animal hair and DNA of unknown origin.
- The study from the expert Maksim Smirnou had a clear result: Oury Jalloh could not lay the fire himself under no circumstances, but became most probably about five litres of petrol (or another burnable fluid) poured over and lighted by 3rd party.
