Please Support the Family's Campaign for Justice

Justice for Terence Wheelock
Protest at Store Street Garda Station
Saturday 3rd June
Meet at 12:00am at Sean McDermot Street Church

On the anniversary of the arrest of Terence, his family are holding a peaceful protest outside Store Street Garda Station. This was the station were Terence suffered the injuries which resulted in his death.

Terence Wheelock, a 20 year old young man from north inner city Dublin, died on the 16th September from injuries received in Garda custody. Terence was arrested with three others on suspicion of stealing a car and taken to Store St Garda station. Two hours later he was found unconscious in his cell.
Gardai claim that he tried to hang himself but his family say that he wouldn’t have committed suicide and he had an alibi accounting for his movements at the time the car was stolen. A senior Garda who spent 15 years working in Store Street station has been appointed to conduct an internal inquiry into the circumstances of Terence’s death. The family have no faith
in such an enquiry. They are calling for an Independent Public Enquiry into Terence’s death. If the Gardai and the Minister for Justice have nothing to hide why will they not agree to this Independent Public Enquiry?

WHY?

• Why was the cell where Terence died renovated before his legal team could inspect it?
• Why will the Garda not give his solicitor access to his clothes?
• Why did Terence have a cut and bruising on his body?
• Why will the Garda not give his solicitor access to the internal Garda report?
• Why haven’t his legal team had access to the post-mortem report?
• Why does his legal team have to go to the High Court to get access to all of the above?

The family of a young man found hanging in a garda cell have questioned the Minister for Justice’s decision not to grant funding for an independent forensic examination of his belongings.

His brother Larry Wheelock said: “After granting us funds to pay for independent experts, it was taken back. Now we are not waiting for a reply from the minister.

The case was adjourned by Dublin City Coroner Dr Brian Farrell until June 13.

The protest outside store st garda station was well attended hundreds of locals attended it.
The march proceeded down gardiner st and then on to store st. people on the street were very supportive.

there was a wall of flowers on the railings of the station.

Mep mary lou mcdonald and labour TD joe costelloe addressed the march also supporting a full independent public inquiry to establish independently of gardai just what exactly happened on the 2/6/05 to terence wheelock. so the family can get some closure and answers to these troubling questions. i wish them the best of luck!
