Feedback: The Brian Avery Story

Dear Editorial team,

Many thanks for publishing the story on Brian's shooting. I just want to make a point of clarification. I too was a witness to Brian's shooting - if you go over the testimonies, I was in there too and I am a British citizen.

In your story you mention just Danish and Swedish activists. I think it serves Israeli state propaganda to not have it known that a citizen from one of its key political and military allies also witnessed the atrocity against Brian.

I'd be grateful if you could take note of this or amend the piece, and just bear it in mind for further reference. I also want to add that I am banned from Israel - I spent 3 weeks in detention trying to get into the country in August. I was labelled a security threat and after three court hearings was ejected but there is a small chance I might still get in with the backing of my union - the UK National Union of Journalists. Again, by me being written out of Brian's shooting, it may help Israel in sustaining the ban if I try to give evidence in Brian's trial, if it happens.

I know it was probably just an oversight, but its really important to be accurate when it comes to witnesses to what was nearly a murder.

All the best
Ewa Jasiewicz
