Support an inquest for Jay
Jay Abatan was brutally attacked in a racist frenzy by a gang in Brighton on 24 January 1999. He died five days later. Jay’s attackers have never been convicted of murder.
Eight and a half years on, Jay’s brother Michael and his family are still bravely fighting for justice for Jay and need your support.
The family have succeeded in forcing the police to admit serious flaws in their investigation and to take disciplinary action against officers. Incredibly, no incident room was set up after the attack to investigate the case and officers gave good character evidence for the accused in court. The family are now campaigning for an inquest into Jay’s death to find out exactly what happened.
You can help by signing the online petition to the coroner of Brighton and Hove, urging a reinstatement of an inquest for Jay. Please visit www.justiceforjay.co.uk.
