My report in the taz: www.taz.de/Urteile-in-Grossbritannien/!136624/
#Nicholasjacobs free. I was one of the only few German journalists (maybe the only German at the beginning?), that went to the trial for a few days and reported on it for #TazDieTageszeitung, the only German newspaper independent and clever enough on such issues.
Because most people do not want to pay for news anymore, reading free of charge online or those free hand out newspapers, I did not get paid much for the many hours in court apart from one article, but I understood that truth and information are sometimes more important, than what you get paid, especially whilst much of the UK media was taking the side of the crown prosecution even though now they claim otherwise.
I remember how on the second Monday of the trial, I was the only journalist at all observing the entire demo for Jacobs, whilst a BBC colleague with camera did a 2 minute recording and then left.
This – going to trials, listening and taking longer notes – isn’t sustainable for ever for journalists like myself, but I know what I am in journalism for. I could have continued to build a career as CEO of NGOs, but chose to go back to journalism, because of passion for truth, justice and reporting from angles others don’t, based on a solid foundation of original studies in politics, sociology and modern history, journalism and years of commitment to the media. I was also in a minority by hinting to the internal corruption of the police and the problems with the witnesses produced.
As to the issue of the events 30 years ago, I hope some sort of truth and reconciliation process could emerge for all victims of the time, those who were targets and victims of the Met and for the family of the murdered officer Keith Blakelock.
Mein Bericht in der Taz http://www.taz.de/Urteile-in-Grossbritannien/!136624/
Ich war einer der wenigen Deutschen Journalisten ( anfänglich evtl. der einzige Deutsche), die einige Tage des Prozesses gegen Nicholas Jacobs im Gericht beobachtet hatten, und einiger der wenigen aller, die überhaupt über Probleme im Fall, Polizeikorruption und unzuverlässige Zeugen von Anfang an schrieben.
Mein Honorar dafür, war mehr, dass mein Sinn für aufrichtigen und informativen Journalismus, basiert auf eine fundierte Ausbildung in Politik und Zeitgeschichte, und Jahre der Erfahrung, richtig war, als das wenige Geld was man mit dem Journalismus dieser Tage verdient. Es ist deshalb wichtig und essenziell , dass von allen unabhängiger Journalismus finanziell mitgetragen wird, sei es durch Abos oder die 10 Cent beispielsweise auf der Taz Zahleinrichtung für bestimmte Berichte, oder mindestens durch Verteilung über die sozialen Medien. So bleiben nicht nur Zeitungen am Leben, sondern vielleicht kriegen Journalisten auch irgendwann wieder genug bezahlt, so dass man es sich beispielsweise immer erlauben kann, bei Prozessen beizusitzen.

Mein Bericht vom Mittwoch über den Prozess gegen die beiden des Mordes von Lee Rigby Angeklagten.

Erika: Are you scared of Ghosts?
Erika: We have a very frightening report coming up, and I need someone to grap hold onto..
Anke Come-on, there are n-no ghosts.
Erika: Well I am not so sure, have a listen to this, sent to us per bat-post from our correspondent Daniel Zylbersztajn in London. Anke – I am scared…
Be afraid, be very afraid: London has had a bloody and dreadful past, but in these bitter arctic winter days the latest definitely cool thing – and I mean freezing cool – is to walk into London’s past to find out that the city was much worse in the bygone centuries. There are various places where this past is in on exhibit, such as Torture Chamber of the Tower of London, The House of Detention, which is a former prison, and the London Dungeon, a ghastly museum of London’s most shocking events and characters. I consulted Declan Mc Hugh, a local historian and actor who runs the “Blood and Tears Walk”, to learn more. On a grim ice-cold and rainy winter night, he walked me to some of the many fearful places, and bravely I followed…:
[sound of burning] Here we are at Smithfield’s. People were burned alive here! Some of you know Henry the eight. He had a habit of inflicting some cruel executions on people. Fore example there was a cook called Richard Rose and he made a meal which killed 17 people. Now this might have been an accident – he was taken here, he was put into a large metal pot, big enough to contain a man. Filled with oil, lid a match underneath the pot, and two ours later he was boiled to death. That was he punishment for poisoning people. [sound of bubbling pot and bell from London Dungeon]
My guide wasn’t sure, if the unfortunate cook, and people like him, were later consumed by these hungry spectators, but maybe King Henry himself had the cook for dinner, with some pepper and Worchester Sauce. I don’t even want to consider what he did with his wives he had decapitated…
What makes events like this worse was the fact that masses of people of the day and age understood these sinister executions as a rather entertaining event to laugh and funny about. Sometimes so many curious people attended the executions, that the death-toll amongst the spectators could at times exceed the number of people officially executed, because there could be unfortunate onlookers who fainted or got crushed inside the pushing crowds. Such disgusting entertainment-shows, were very normal even only 150 years ago, yet I believe that if we had we similar events today, I am sure such executions would rather get masses of human rights campaigners onto the streets.
The next location that Declan showed me, was a Church, but it wasn’t just “a” Church:
Right, we are here at the Church of the Holy Sceptical . It has an amazing bell in a glass case, called the Execution bell. A man was paid to go with the bell in a passage way under our feet, across the road to where the Old Bailey is, the central criminal court, because that was the sight of Newgate Prison. The man was paid to ring his bell outside the cell, where the prisoners were waiting to be executed. Sunday 12 O’ clock Midnight all of a sudden these people would her a voice saying this:
Watch and pray! [ continues illustrated in a gruesome way]
The Hour is drawing near
That you before the Almighty
All you that in the Condemned Hall do lie
For Tomorrow you shall die!
We then followed the secret path down to the old prison and court. Before the 18th century there seemed to have been terrifying methods to get an arrested person to confess:
“We’re standing in front of the Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey, but this was also Newgate Prison. It was a very terrible place to be. It was a grim dark dungeon. They had in here he press yard. The right for silence when you are arrested for something did not exist until 1722, before hat time you had to be heard to say whether you were guilty or not guilty so the trial could begin. Now if you didn’t say anything, they took you here to the press yard. They basically put increasing amounts weight on your body, until you said, guilty, not guilty, or you died. [sound effects with scream]
Now I was ready for a deeper understanding of the past, so I entered the London Dungeon voluntarily and paid for it on top. This is a strange place were today’s version of death fascinated spectators cues up to learn and be shocked by the way some very unfortunate people lost their lives through some exceptionally brutal and murderous persons. A gruesome tall man, with a large knife at the entrance, recommended that I’d go and see the Jack the Ripper Tour. Before I left him he warned me that I’d be aware of some of the visitors. He said, from time to time they had some weirdoes in the dungeon, like people who claim to be vampires and so, which then have to be removed by the police. Almost falling over some blood tainted wax-corpses on the way to the Jack the Ripper Tour, in this hellish dim dungeon, I was back in the 19th century with the history group of a secondary school, who apparently studied Crime and Punishment:
Whitechapel the East end of London, November 1888. Over a period of ten weeks, it did manage Jack the Ripper to murder five prostitutes. After the fifth victim on the 9th of November he was never heart from again. Down in front of you we have the first victim, whose name was Mary Ann Nichols, also known amongst her friends as Pretty Polly [fading out]
I wasn’t feeling very comfortable, so I asked, if the people around me felt likewise and if they were scared:
Are you scared? Boy: Not really, not at the moment!
[Girl screaming in the background]
No!. [scared] No
Somehow, I had a feeling these people were just trying to be nice to me, . but I assumed they were too embarrassed to admit, that really they were frightened to the bone … and the show continued…
Voice: The slaughter of 5 prostitutes, all within a mile of each other. Spreads fear and anger through Whitechapel. Everyone wants to know, who is Jack the Ripper?
Are you scared? Boy: I did jump!
Girl: It’s really scary, yeah I screamed, won’t come again! Too scary for me!
Girl2: It was scary! And it portrayed a good picture of how it was these many 100 years ago!
Anke: And this was the last we heart of Daniel Zylbersztajn who sent us this report from London! No, only joking. …
