British singer Jade Jones is going to the U.K.’s House of Commons with his campaign to bring his brother’s killer to justice. His brother, John Kennedy was stabbed to death in a London pub back in 1997. However, police never found his killer and secured a conviction in the case.

Jones is now leading a new drive, urging revelers at the bar that night to come forward with any information they might have, following a vigil in London in April.

There is also a $32,000 (£20,000) reward offered to a person with information leading to a prosecution. The star and his mother, Rita Kennedy-Jones are now set to meet with British Member of Parliament (MP) David Lammy. They will try to increase awareness of the unsolved tragic murder.

Jones told U.K. TV show Lorraine, “Seventeen years is too long for a family to be grieving… We are making efforts as a family to encourage witnesses to come forward.

We have had meetings with Simon Hughes, Justice Minister, who has promised anonymity for witnesses who want to come forward… The people at that pub have been scared to say anything… At the minute, our brother’s killer is out on the loose.”

“We are going to the House of Commons to meet the Deputy Police Commissioner (of London) and David Lammy (MP). We just want to put the right people in place to help our cause.”
