Appeal three years on from murder of human rights campaigner Abdel Salam Hassan Abdel Salam in Lee
THREE years to the day human rights worker Abdel Salam Hassan Abdel Salam was murdered in his flat in Lee, police have launched a fresh appeal for help and information.
A reward of up to £20,000 remains on offer for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for the death of the 56-year-old.
He was found dead in his ground-floor flat in Boone Street at about 7.10am on March 13 2010 after a neighbour noticed his door was ajar.
Paramedics pronounced the Sudanese lawyer dead at the scene.
A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as blood loss from a stab wound to his leg.
Mr Abdel Salam, who used two sticks to walk, worked at a charity called Redress, a human rights organisation which helps torture survivors.
An incident room remains open and extensive enquiries have been carried out over the last three years.
Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Gwyn said: "It has now been three years since the murder of Abdel Salam.
“We have always believed the answer to this crime lies within the local community and someone out there has information that could greatly assist our enquiries.
“Please come forward."
Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4805 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
Four men, aged 28, 29, 36 and 46, were arrested in 2010 in connection with the murder but all were subsequently released without charge.
