Subject: [bullyonline] "We need a major case to test Human Rights and Bullying"

Dear BullOnLine Members,

I very much agree with the following recent statement from Pierre-Joseph Proudhon:

"We need a major case to test Human Rights and Bullying" (BullyOnLine Message 62429, of May 23rd 2006).

I believe I actually have just such a case, which is well documented, and which involves a long string of very serious "human rights law" and bullying type abuses; and, I have actually sent a formal application to the European Court of Human Rights (Council of Europe) through the registered post on March 25th 2006 in connection with this case.

However, and to my great and growing dismay, I have received no reply of any kind at all from the Registrar at the European Court of Human Rights (to date) regarding his/her receipt of the set of application documents in question.

I have also sent an e-mail reminder to the Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights on April 28th 2006, plus a printed and signed copy of the e-mail in question through the normal post using the UK Royal Mail "Airsure" service (which I also sent on April 28th 2006).

Though the Royal Mail "Track and Trace" Internet service clearly indicates that my "reminder" Airsure letter was successfully "delivered in FRANCE before 10:22 on May 9th 2006" (as anyone can verify by entering the particular Royal Mail Airsure letter reference number LY225605312GB at http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/home/ ), I have still heard nothing at all in return from the Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights regarding the safe receipt of my "March 25th 2006 Application".

Needless to say, I am now growing very, very concerned regarding the mysterious and disturbing "wall of silence" I am being deliberately presented with (apparently?) by European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe regarding my March 25th 2006 Application - particularly when it is the case that I can very easily be contacted by e-mail (at the address I am using for this e-mail).

Detailed information relating to the application I made to the European Court of Human Rights on March 26th 2006, including a scanned copy of the Royal Mail "Priority Handling and Registered Delivery" receipt I used on that date, can be viewed at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.com/

Please note that the "Application Documents" on view at the address just above involve very severe psychological bullying over a period of several years - at the hands of public officials and bodies - and that they contain written evidence from my GP (Dr McCavert), and from a senior social worker (Mr Gerard Madden), which supports this claim. One of the "To Whom It May Concern" letters I have submitted from my GP, for example, very clearly points out that I have ended up with "PTSD Complex": as a direct result of all the trauma and abuse I have been subjected to (since around 1998). A scanned copy of this particular letter can be viewed at: http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

I am now wondering if anyone at the "BullyOnLine" Yahoo site might have any suggestions as to where I should try to go from here - with regard to my particular case (i.e. European Court of Human Rights "Application Number: 25077/05" now on display at the address two paragraphs up) ???

I feel completely stuck at the present time.

Please note that the legal abuse I am being subjected to is so severe that I cannot even find a lawyer who is willing to advise me, let alone take on my case.

Sincerely,

William Finnerty.

In connection with the recent offer of help (please see "Comment 1" above), a reply was sent last Wednesday to the European Ombudsman in Strasbourg.

The reply contains information which may be of interest to people and communities who feel they are being bullied by public officials and bodies.

Dear Ms Murray,

I regret it has taken me a little longer that I would have liked to reply to your e-mail of May 27th (reproduced below).

Please note that on April 19th last I was handed what I believe was an Irish Times newspaper clipping by a senior social worker who is helping me (named Gerard Madden); and, that it had a copy of your e-mail address at the bottom of the clipping - towards the end of an article titled: "Dealing with injustice".

In case you might not realise that your e-mail address appeared on the Irish Times clipping in question, it is now possible to view a scanned copy of the article I was handed on April 19th at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...e.htm

The error I made regarding your qualifications, which I also regret, arose because the Internet search-engine result at the address immediately below produced the following sentence at the very top of the list: "Born in Belfast in 1951, she graduated in Law from the Queen's ... Marie Murray is Director of Psychology at St. Vincent's Hospital, Fairview in Dublin."
Please see:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Marie+Murray,+...earch

According to my records (which I have gone through carefully this evening), only one e-mail was sent by me, on April 21st 2006, which used the incorrect "Law" information taken from the above Internet search engine result. As you can see at the address below, the error has been corrected on my web site, so that there is now no suggestion of you being a lawyer as far as that particular copy of the e-mail is concerned.
Please see:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...l.htm

As I have no means now of editing the copies of the April 21st 2006 which were sent to other people, I feel the only form of correction available to me in the circumstances is to copy this e-mail to all those involved - so that they all know about the error I made in believing (for a time) that you were a lawyer as well as a psychologist.

Yours sincerely,

William Finnerty.

PS: In the meantime, you may be interested to know that Mr Madden (Senior Social Worker) did eventually receive a written reply from Minister for Justice Michael McDowell T.D., which can now be viewed at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

Unfortunately, in his reply at the above address, Minister McDowell appears to have completely ignored the C-PTSD issues Mr Madden pointed out to him in his letter of November 7th 2005: which I regard as a gross error of judgement on Minister McDowell's behalf. For additional information please see:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

For those recipients of this e-mail who do not know about the set of psychological injuries known as "Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" (i.e. C-PTSD), and who may wish to learn a little of the basics, I include the following link:

Dear William Finnerty,

I hope you will not be offended if I ask that you remove my email from your CC list as I am uncomfortable at the fact that by being there it provides access to this email address to people whom I do not know.

I also need to point out that on one or two previous emails I appeared to be listed as if I had legal qualifications which I do not have. My degrees are in psychology and psychotherapy and I have not, nor would I ever claim to have, any training or competency with regard to legal matters.

Additionally, I would not wish to attach myself to some of the statements in some of the emails as I am not at all acquainted with the issues and cannot therefore either support or refute the issues or indeed be regarded as having a position on them.

In the interests of clarity I CC this email to you, to those to whom my incoming email has been copied and trust that you will understand and respect my position.

Marie Murray

Dear Commissioner Conroy,

I have recently received a copy of a letter dated May 25th 2006 which was sent by Minister for Justice, Equality, and Law Reform Mr. Michael McDowell T.D. to Mr. Gerard Madden, who is a Senior Social Worker at The Sperrin Lakeland Health & Social Care Trust, in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

As can be viewed on the scanned copy of Minister McDowell's letter at the Internet address provided just below, I note, in the final paragraph, that my correspondence has been forwarded to the Gardai (i.e. the Republic of Ireland Police). Please see:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

With further reference to the copy of Minister McDowell's letter at the above address, I would be very grateful if you, and ALL of the other senior public officials in the Republic of Ireland which this e-mail is being copied to in the "To:" section above, would please take very careful note of the fact that Minister Mc Dowell's reply to Mr Madden makes no mention at all of the PTSD Complex injuries I now suffer from: despite the fact it is referred to a number of times in the scanned copy of the main letter, and in the closely associated "enclosed report" from Dr McCavert, which Mr Madden sent to Minister McDowell on November 7th 2005. For the details, please see:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

I would ask you all to also please note there is a statement at the address just above from Dr McCavert (GP) which very clearly states that my "symptoms and behaviours are the result of traumas and stresses over years and these traumas and stresses have come at the hands of individuals and public officials and bodies that he has encountered in his struggles to try to correct environmental wrong doings".

With due regard for the statement relating to "public officials and bodies" made by my GP (Dr Michael McCavert) at the address immediately above, and for reasons which I feel should be obvious to most people, the fact that Minister McDowell appears to have completely ignored the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder issue, means that he has now aggravated and compounded (in a very significant way) the whole C-PTSD problem I am at present battling with.

Now that the "Internet Age" is so well established, it seems to me that there is no need for any reasonably normal person to remain ignorant for long regarding the basic facts relating to the PTSD Complex set of psychological injuries, which in certain important respects relating to "treatment and recovery" resemble physical injuries. There are, for example, several pages outlining the basic facts relating to "PTSD Complex" available via the following Internet address - which do not (I believe) require college degrees in medicine or psychology (or any other subject) to understand:
http://www.google.com/search?q=PTSD+Complex&btnG=Google...earch

Also, and for anyone who wishes to quickly and easily learn of the close links between "Dealing with injustice", and certain common forms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, together with an outline account of the shocking problems and difficulties which can and do frequently arise in connection with these matters, I have added a scanned copy of an article by the Dublin based psychologist and Irish Times columnist Marie Murray - which Mr Madden (Senior Social Worker) handed me some weeks ago. Please see:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...e.htm

With reference to the extant warrant for my arrest, which Mr Madden has informed Minister McDowell about in his letter on November 7th 2005, please note that I am now URGENTLY in need of a written assurance from a senior public official in the Republic of Ireland which clearly states that I will not be forced, totally against my wishes (which I view as physical and psychological bullying of an extremely dangerous and nasty kind), into appearing before any court of law in the Republic of Ireland in a manner which violates my legal rights under the terms of Article 6 of The European Convention on Human Rights: as Garda (Policeman) Thomas Kenny, of Woodlawn, New Inn, County Galway, kept on threatening to do on several occasions during the days before I eventually fled the Republic of Ireland in haste during the early hours of December 7th 2004 - in spite of a long string of pleas from myself and other members of my immediate family who visited his home on a number of occasions for the purpose of trying to persuade him to stop treating me in that way.

The urgent need for the written assurance referred to in the paragraph just above has to do with an important meeting I need to attend in Roscommon Town on July 10th 2006. Please note that Mr McDowell has already been informed about this meeting, and that he was informed well before his May 25th reply to Mr Madden - as can be seen in the copy of the e-mail reproduced at the following address:
http://www.lisnamult.com/TraceyDavis/Planner/RoscommonC...l.htm

Please also note that although Minister for Justice McDowell has acknowledged my "difficulties in securing legal representation" in his letter to Mr Madden of May 25th, he has not offered any remedy of any kind for this crucially important problem. With due regard for his "Justice Minister" position in Government, I find it very strange, and very disturbing, that Minister McDowell has offered me no help at all with this particular difficulty, which is now of many years standing; and, which has already been reported to many senior public officials in writing (by me): on far more occasions than I am able to accurately remember - without reference to my papers, many of which are in County Galway - and consequently unavailable to me without running the risk of being bullied into appearing before a court of law to face a charge of criminal assault without any proper (i.e. well briefed) legal representation.

Changing the subject slightly, I would like to take this opportunity to point out to all concerned that one of the three main sets of "environmental wrong doings" I have objected to relates to the planned location of two huge rubbish dumps near my home in County Galway. As always, I continue to believe that, in all likelihood, these two rubbish dumps - one of which has been completed by Greenstar/National Toll Roads (in Kilconnell, County Galway) during my present period of forced-exile - are the direct consequence of alterations made to the Republic of Ireland's Waste Management Act a few years ago, which appear to violate Article 28A.1 of the Republic of Ireland's Constitution: in what seems to me, and to many others, to be a very straightforward and blatant manner. Please note that although I sent a letter through the registered post to Mr. Martin Egan (Lawyer) on July 16th 2004, regarding my wish to have the constitutionality of the legislation in question checked by the courts, which I, or anyone else for that matter, am legally entitled to do (as far as I know), I have never received any reply from Mr Egan. A copy of my letter to Mr Egan, together with scanned copy of the Post Office receipt, can be viewed at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...4.htm

I feel I should make it clear that I am not by any means the only person in my local community (in County Galway) to seriously doubt the legal validity of the now completed "Kilconnell Superdump" - as it is called locally. For the past 18 months or so, it has been a matter of public knowledge on the Internet that a local young law student (Ms Ann Marie Kelly) has tried - and been formally turned down for no good reason, I understand - to get legal aid to have the constitutionality of the legislation in question checked by the courts: as can be seen at the following address:
http://www.annmariekelly.org/LegalAidApplication/3Novem...4.htm

As there are plans to locate a second huge rubbish dump close to my home, this time close to the world famous Turoe Stone (and close to the middle of some of its very closely associated archaeologically important surrounds), which is regarded by many to actually be the most important piece of Iron Age Celtic stone-art in the world, please note that I still have a very strong wish to go ahead with the "Article 28A.1" constitutionality check referred to above. (Further information on the Turoe Stone can be found via the following address: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Turoe+Stone%2C...earch .)

Though there seemed to me, and to everyone I know in County Galway that I discussed the matter with, to be a far better alternative to the two local Superdumps, this alternative plan appears (as I understand the situation at present) to have been very inappropriately pushed to one side by the public officials who were informed about it. For further information on this point, please see the press release type information regarding the meeting Dr Niamh Clune (Zero Waste Alliance Ireland) addressed in the New Inn area of County Galway on October 1st 2004.
http://www.annmariekelly.org/WardsBallyfa-1stOctober200...4.htm

Closely connected with the local rubbish dumps issue there is also the very important matter of the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement which the Republic of Ireland signed in 1998, but, which has not yet been "laid before Dail Eireann" as required by Article 29.5.1 of the Republic of Ireland's Constitution - or "Bunreacht na hEireann" as it is sometimes referred to: which of course literally means "The Basic Law of Ireland" in the Celtic language.

As can be seen at the following address, I would like all concerned to note that I have tried many times - and always unsuccessfully to date - to raise the issue of the Aarhus Convention Agreement with numerous elected representatives and public officials in the Republic of Ireland. One of many examples of my efforts relating to this particular point can be viewed at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...y.htm

Largely on account of the work I did in connection with the case I submitted to the European Court of Human Rights on March 25th last, I now wish all of the senior public officials this e-mail is being addressed to, to know that, in connection with the criminal charge of assault Mr James Hamilton (Director of Public Prosecution) issued against me in 2002, I now feel that my "legal defence" paperwork is approximately 90% complete from my viewpoint. A scanned copy of the charge I was handed on September 6th 2002 can be viewed at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...s.htm

With regard to the extant warrant for my arrest, it seems VERY important (to me at least) that I have never received any reply from Mr Hamilton (DPP) in response to the registered letter I sent to him through the registered post on September 21st 2002. A copy of the letter in question, together with a copy of the associated Post Office receipt, can be viewed at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co..._.htm

As far as the final preparation for my defence is concerned, the main thing I need now is a lawyer who will assist me to prepare my defence case for the actual court hearing itself. Though it does not seem at all possible for me to find such a person at the present time, I nonetheless still feel that I need a lawyer who: a) fully recognises the reality of human rights law; b) is willing to act on my behalf and in my best interests, both inside and outside of court; and c) is willing to view all of the basic facts I have outlined in this e-mail as being relevant to my defence case.

I hope to hear from you (or from one of your senior public official colleagues), within the coming 21 days please, regarding the written assurance I have referred to above in connection the extant warrant for my arrest, and the pre-planning meeting for the 30 acre "Lisnamult" site (near the centre of Roscommon Town) on July 10th 2006.

For future reference purposes, I plan to place a copy of this e-mail at the following address later today:

True to his word - how refreshingly different for a public official !! - the European Ombudsman has contacted me regarding his decision about my complaint to him: within the 30 day limit his Office sets out to meet.

Glad of the opportunity to link certain things together, which in my opinion are very badly in need of being linked together in the minds of all public officials, my reply (of last Thursday) to the European Ombudsman contained the following paragraph:

'Allowing for the above, I would now like to make what for me is a very special, and a very important request to you: Please consider, as carefully as you possibly can, the contents of the two "To Whom It May Concern" letters referred to above from Dr Michael McCavert GP, before you finalise your consideration and your work in connection with the set of complaints I have made to you regarding the way I am being bullied and abused "at the hands of individuals and public officials and bodies" (as Dr McCavert has stated, in writing, in Item "h" above) - having due regard for the fact that I am now suffering from "Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" as a direct consequence of the bullying and abuse in question.'

Later last Thursday, I also "Forwarded" my e-mail to the European Ombudsman on to Prime Minister Ahern TD (Republic of Ireland).

For anyone interested, the full text of the e-mail to Prime Minister Ahern is reproduced below.

European Ombudsman's reference: 1867/2006/IP

Dear Mr Diamandouros,

Thank you for your e-mail letter dated June 28th 2006, the main part of which I have reproduced at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

Letters have crossed in the post, and since sending my registered letter to you dated May 31st 2006 I have received a reply from the European Court of Human Rights. A copy of their letter to me dated May 30th 2006, which I received on June 13th 2006, can be viewed at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

Allowing for the contents of the ECHR letter at the address immediately above, I would ask you to please take careful note of the fact that I still feel shocked and dismayed by the way the European Court of Human Rights appear to have completely ignored the two "To Whom It May Concern" letters issued by my G.P. (Dr Michael McCavert) last year.

The two letters from Dr McCavert referred to above formed part of the application I made to the European Court of Human Rights on March 25th 2006 (i.e. Application Number 25077/05), as can be seen in the list of documents I sent with my application, which can be viewed at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...l.htm

Specifically, Item "k" of ECHR Application Number 25077/05, Dr Michael McCavert's "To Whom It May Concern" letter dated September 6th 2005, can be seen at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...5.htm

and

Item "h", Dr Michael McCavert's "To Whom It May Concern" letter dated October 28th 2005, can be viewed at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

The way I see things, the European Court of Human Rights cannot completely ignore the two letters from Dr Michael McCavert GP referred to above, and at the same time retain credibility. In other words, and with due regard for the contents of their letter to me dated May 30th 2006, I believe there has to be something VERY seriously amiss at the European Court of Human Rights (at the present time). I further believe that any reasonable person who considers the facts so far available to me relating to ECHR Application Number 25077/05, will be forced to draw a very similar conclusion. (You may wish to know that I am keeping this set of facts updated, as best I can, and in the most integrated way I can, at the following address: http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.com/ ).

Allowing for the above, I would now like to make what for me is a very special, and a very important request to you: Please consider, as carefully as you possibly can, the contents of the two "To Whom It May Concern" letters referred to above from Dr Michael McCavert GP, before you finalise your consideration and your work in connection with the set of complaints I have made to you regarding the way I am being bullied and abused "at the hands of individuals and public officials and bodies" (as Dr McCavert has stated, in writing, in Item "h" referred to above) - having due regard for the fact that I am now suffering from "Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" as a direct consequence of the bullying and abuse in question.

For future reference purposes, I intend to place a copy of this e-mail at the following address later today:

Colin,

This sounds like good news to me.

However, I feel I should point out that I have had problems with MSN Group sites in the past in that they suddenly disappeared without warning (for no good reason I know of): when the going got tough and when I most needed them - or at least that is how it appeared to me at the time.

Correctly or otherwise, the conclusion I came to is that MSN Groups may be a bit too "pro-establishment" for people who, like myself, feel they have suffered (and continue to suffer) SEVERELY at the hands of the "Establishment Forces".

It's all very well to criticise a few bits and pieces of the furniture in the "Establishment Mansion", and to seek minor replacements or rearrangements here and there maybe - but quite another to do or say anything which remotely suggests that the "Mansion" may in reality have become a massive psychological sewer of some kind which is now in need of very major structural changes, without undue delay: if human society is ever to recover from all the damage that has already been caused by the well camouflaged sewer of corruption, bullying, spin, cronyism, human rights law abuse, etc., etc..

My own view, for what it's worth, but which is based on my own direct experiences during recent years, is that MUCH more attention now needs to be paid to "human rights law": which, as I see things at the present time, is just receiving highly hypocritical and misleading lip-service from the Establishment - and "double-talk" type lip-service at that: which I believe is guaranteed to add still more fiery fuel to the already out-of-control blazes of flaming anger, resentment, misery, etc.

Best wishes,

William Finnerty.

Great stuff Dafydd.

I'm pleased to hear it of the success and if I'm not already a member of Stand Your Ground, then count me in.

A word of warning though: -- Years ago I was a member of a group which comprised of many good, honest, and strong fellow victims of the 'system'.

I believe that we were seen as a threat to the establishment and were infiltrated by people who caused a lot of discord and it got so bad that no one knew who to trust within the group.

Yes, we need numbers, but we also need to vet new members and so avoid being 'got at'.

I've noticed that your link to my own website still shows it to be at geocities.

Subject: [bullyonline] Theme Song (for victims of bullying)?

Hello Everyone,

Some weeks back the thought crossed my mind that we could usefully find ourselves a theme song of some kind, and it seemed to me that "Ain't no stoppin' us now (We're on the move)" might be a good candidate, or well worthy of consideration at the very least.

In the meantime, I have located the music. Anyone interested, who also has the necessary software on their PC, can hear the music by clicking on the link provided further down.

As far as I know, anybody using one of the fairly recent versions of "Windows" should be able to hear the song - which uses a ".wma" file format. Unfortunately, it is possible that you might (?) need to be using a "broadband" Internet connection as well?

Anyway, and even if you cannot hear the music, I believe the lyrics of the song may strike a chord with some of you.

In part, the words of the song are as follows:

=====================

Ain't no stoppin' us now,
We're on the move.

Ain't no stoppin' us now,
We got the groove.

There's been so many things that held us down,
But now it looks like things are finally comin' around.

I know we've got a long long way to go,
And where we'll end up I don't know.

But we won't let nothin' hold us back.

We're puttin' our show together, we're polishin' our act.

Well, if you've ever been held down before
I know you'd refuse to be held down anymore.

Don't you let nothin' nothin' stand in your way,
I want y'all to listen listen to ev'ry word I say, ev'ry word I say.

Ain't no stoppin' us now,
We're on the move.

=====================

I am wondering if anyone reading this might be able to help me with information on the suspension of arrest warrants?

I have already found some information on the Internet relating to this subject. However, it all seems to relate to states which are a long way away from the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom of Great Brittan and Northern Ireland, as, for example, with the following piece which has to do with an event in Eastern Europe:

"Serbian officials suspended an arrest warrant for Slobodan Milosevic's widow today, increasing speculation that the former president's funeral may be held in Belgrade." (This piece of text has been copied from the following location: http://www.guardian.co.uk/yugo/article/0,,1730681,00.html .)

Basically, and among other things, I am trying to gain SAFE access to legal papers in my home in County Galway in the Republic of Ireland for the purpose of defending myself in court; but, so far, I have failed to find any way of having the warrant for my arrest suspended while I do so.

I did write to the Chief Commissioner of Police in the Republic of Ireland (Mr Noel Conroy) on June 12th last, but I have not received any reply of any kind at all from him. The matter of the extant warrant for my arrest was mentioned to him at the following page location:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...rrant

Also, a senior social worker (Mr Gerard Madden) wrote on my behalf to Chief Commissioner Conroy three days later on June 15th, as can be seen at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

Unfortunately, Mr Madden's efforts have also failed to produce any useful results.

Any help that anyone might be able to provide me with regarding the "suspension of arrest warrants" - in my particular part of the world (i.e. in Ireland) - would be very much appreciated.

In the struggle to act within a corrupt world, and yet maintain MORAL INTEGRITY, Hamlet ultimately reflects the fate of all human beings?

In the text below, King Hamlet's ghost describes his own murderous poisoning, of some months earlier, to his son - in a way which (some people speculate) Shakespeare may have intended to reflect the manner in which corruption has poisoned the entire body of humanity:

"Brief let me be. Sleeping within my orchard,
My custom always of the afternoon,
Upon my secure hour thy uncle stole,
With juice of cursed hebenon in a vial,
And in the porches of my ears did pour
The leperous distilment; whose effect
Holds such an enmity with blood of man
That swift as quicksilver it courses through
The natural gates and alleys of the body,
And with a sudden vigour doth posset
And curd, like eager droppings into milk,
The thin and wholesome blood: so did it mine;
And a most instant tetter bark'd about,
Most lazar-like, with vile and loathsome crust,
All my smooth body." (Act I, scene 5)

Hello Everyone,

Almost everything I have found so far on this subject relates entirely to children, which I feel is more than a little misleading in certain ways.

I suspect that the exact same "Triad" model holds true for many adult bullying situations as well?

It certainly does in my case: with literally dozens of senior public officials (including THREE European Court of Human Rights judges) completely ignoring the the entire contents of the "To Whom It May Concern" letter from my GP (medical doctor) at the address provided just below:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

With adults in mind, and the possibility of better adult healing processes through improved understanding, I've changed the words in the above quote slightly so that they might (?) now more usefully read: "It’s a deadly triad: 1) bullies who terrorize; 2) bullied adults who are afraid to do anything, or who do not know what to do; and, 3) bystanders - of all kinds - who watch, participate, or look away, and who dismiss the incidents as a normal part of life."

The original quote comes from the following location:
http://heysonnie.wordpress.com/2006/06/25/the-bully-the...nder/

The arrogance and cruelty of the revolting cowards and bullies of the legal profession knows no bounds apparently?

The information in an e-mail sent this morning is now on public display for all the world to see at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...l.htm

The official Yahoo message identification and tracking has been included at the above address - so that it will be very difficult for any of the several addressees around the world to later claim they "did not know anything" about the amazing and outrageously unlawful human rights abuse senior public officials in the Republic of Ireland are indulging themselves in.
 
Allowing for the way the legal profession viciously attacked Mr John Gill (Crooked Lawyers Yahoo Group) in a very protracted way last year, regarding what many felt was a relatively unimportant and completely avoidable matter, I personally will now be very interested to see if ANY member of the legal profession - including Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD - make any attempt whatever to have the information at the above address removed.  (As some will recall, the legal profession did succeed in forcing the removal of some information in Mr Gill's case.)
  
My belief is that NONE of them will try to remove any of my information - as the cowardly bullies in question all know perfectly well they would bring the roof down on top of themselves if they did: because a) the information in the e-mail reproduced at the above address is all COMPLETELY true; and b) it can very easily be proved beyond all reasonable doubt in a court of law - with or without a jury.
 
With a general election just some months away - people like Prime Minister Ahern TD can expect to be hearing a lot more from me in the weeks and months ahead, and I will be doing everything I reasonably can to show Irish voters, and the rest of the world, what a shoddy and corrupt bunch of cowardly thugs he and his government colleagues really are.

I assume that you have some form of evidence that Minister McDowell TD is "as crooked and as corrupt as you could possibly find ANYWHERE on earth - in addition to being a dangerously deluded bully of the worst kind". The onus is on the defendant in a defamation case to prove the substance of statements, not on the plaintiff to refute them.

Though it gave me no pleasure in doing so (it made me feel ill in fact), I did try to inform "the rest of the world" about the shoddy and corrupt bunch of "public servants" the Republic of Ireland is at present ruled by.

Among other things, I'd hate to see anyone else get caught out badly in the way I've been - by foolishly retiring to the country of my birth, in the mistaken belief that real improvements in the administration had taken place during my absence.

I now believe the Republic of Ireland is more corrupt than it has ever been, and I further believe it is getting significantly more so by the day.

For anyone interested, a copy of the e-mail I sent to the media organisations yesterday can be viewed at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...l.htm

For the possible benefit of some media organisations in the "east", which the information at the above address was copied to, I included the following two pieces of text:

"Media organisations in the "Cc:" section of this e-mail may be interested to know that people like Prime Minister Ahern TD, and Justice Minister McDowell TD, all have the full backing and support of President George W. Bush, Prime Minister Blair MP, and one time President Bill Clinton - people who we all know are entirely happy to fire "Cruise Missiles" and such like into cities like Bagdad which they know are full of very young children."

"With all such politicians (several of them lawyers of course), and there are many all over Europe unfortunately, it appears that human rights law is STRICTLY for window-dressing purposes only."

Sadly, it appears to me, the Republic of Ireland is still governed by greedy pigs who eat their own young.

"Ireland is the ols sow that eats her own farrow."

At least I can now better appreciate the wisdom of James Joyce: for leaving Ireland - and NOT returning.

Its important that public officials do not have the influence which you seem to think they have.

When a judge demands the appearance of persons, they must present themselves, there are no public officials that can interfere with the judiciary in the way which you suggest.

If people had a choice as to whether they appeared before courts no criminals would ever be convicted - they would simply never go to court.

It is difficult to trawl through the myriad of links listed by Mr. Finnerty to get to the bottom of what he is actually complaining about.

However, I think a fair summary of the facts is as follows:

Mr. Finnerty was charged with assault. He did not turn up for the court date.

A bench warrant for failing to appear issued issued for his arrest as he had failed to appear in Court pursuant to a summons which had been served on him.

Mr. Finnerty attended a psychiatric hospital in Northern Ireland and was afraid to return to the Republic due to the bench warrant.

Mr. Finnerty was "appealing the summons to the European Court of Human Rights" although no notice of appeal appeared to have been filed in respect of the alleged Court Order.

So, most of what he appears to have linked is utterly irrelevant or at best has a tenuous link to the matter at hand. Appearing at court to respond to asummons is fundamental to the system of law in this country. By no stretch of the imagination could it be construed as a breach of human rights.

No grand conspiracy, no fundamental breaches of human rights, just a man who did not want to appear in court to face an assault charge.

Having waded through all of Williams ravings, I feel the sequence of events is closer to :

-mr finnerty is alleged to have assaulted someone in his local council
-mr finnerty was summonsed
-mr finnerty decided to ignore the summons
-mr finnerty was summonsed a second time
-mr finnerty decided he did not need to adhere to the second summons
-a bench warrant was issued
-mr finnerty has removed himself from the juristiction to avoid execution of the warrant.

There is no big conspiracy at all - Mr. Finnerty just feels his guilt or innocence is for him to decide not a judge.

I've been keeping an eye on this thread for quite a while now, and I'm starting to suspect that you are trolling.

1) In the email which you allegedly sent to the Garda Commisioner, you list your address as Galway. however elsewhere you claim that you are no longer resident in Galway. Which is it?

2) If you suspect the government is orchestrating a corrupt campaign against you how could reporting this to the very people you say are organising this corruption help? If they are organising it they know already what is going on !

3) You claim to be on the run from a bench warrant. Is it not a little unusual for people that are wanted by An Garda Siochana to be making complaints to An Garda to pursue other alleged crimes?

It just doesnt make sense !

I must say I found it quite amusing to read that you are considering legal action against me. I think this is probably a first for indymedia. Altho out of curiosity I feel obliged to ask what legal action are you considering?

I think if I were you I would focus on your own legal problems ... you may already be a convicted criminal. The court may have convicted you for common assault in your absence, They may also have convicted you of contempt of court. So in theory at least you could be facing a jail term if the judge had bored of your antics.

Obviously I'll be waiting for the Guards to knock on my door regarding your complaint. Oh hold on - you never did manage to suggest what laws I may have broken in your complaint. And you managed to send it to an email address for the commissioner that only you seem to use, altho this would explain why he never replys to you, if he never gets your mails. You also managed to email the wrong address for the DPP. Which is in itself rather funny as you have been mailing that address for quite a while - the DPP do not accept submission by email, and clearly say so on their site.

So if you really do want to mount a case against me I would sugest your only hope is a criminal case - you will never get a warrant for indymedia and internet provider logs for a civil case. So you need to walk into your local Garda Station and file a report. Obviously this will require figuring out what criminal law I have broken.... but this is trivial as I'm sure you could make something up. I suggest torture...or assault - wouldnt that have a delicous touch of irony ?

Obviously the only fly in the ointment here is the walking into the station part..... because once you identify yourself they will be putting the cuffs on you won't they ?

By way of trying to correct some of the latest outbursts of cowardly and anonymous ignorance on this thread, those not already aware may wish to keep in mind that Article 11.1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads as follows:

"Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence." The full text - written in 1948 please note - can be read at http://www.un.org/Overview/rights.html

Some people have some catching up to do?

I have long ago lost track of the number of times I have pointed out to senior public officials in the Republic of Ireland (in letters which are now available to the public on the Internet) that I cannot find a lawyer who is willing to even DISCUSS the human rights law aspects of my case with me, let alone use human rights law in my defence. Consequently, I feel under no obligation whatever to appear in any court in the Republic of Ireland: allowing for the completely absent "guarantees necessary for his defence" section of Article 11.1 above.

On the contrary, I feel I have an EXTREMELY important duty, as a full citizen of the Republic of Ireland, to resist the bullying and corruption in the legal profession which demands that I (or anyone else) is forced to answer to any criminal charge in a manner which, for example, violates the basic human rights set out in the European Act for Human Rights Act 2003 (the text of which can be viewed at http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2003_20.html )

Where does it say that ANY member of the legal profession - judges included - in the Republic of Ireland has the right to completely ignore any section of the Republic of Ireland's "European Act for Human Rights Act 2003" ?

As I have stated previously, it appears that Minister for Justice McDowell TD simply does not recognise important areas of human rights law. As evidence of this, please note that I have still not received ANY reply to the letter send through the registered post to the Minister for Justice McDowell TD at the following address (which raises several core human rights issues): http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

Please also note that I am really ONLY interested in written replies from Minister for Justice McDowell (or from one of his senior public official colleagues) to my legal difficulties.

I really have no interest whatsoever in anonymous replies and comments from the "Damiens" and "Triggers" and "diggers" of this world. Who are you? I don't even know you are, because you are too cowardly to let myself and other readers know - and that being the case why should I or anyone else treat your unwanted and grossly ignorant abuse with anything other than the contempt it fully deserves? Your replies and comments have come to me completely uninvited, they appear to me as malicious packs of lies built on a very nasty mixture of arrogance, ignorance, and stupidity; and, the only reason I have respond to them at all is because I believe such lies and deceptions could potentially be very damaging, in a general sort of way, if they were allowed to go completely unchecked.

Are you trying to suggest that someone who has ( in their own mind ) been subjected to human rights abuses has immunity from the law? We can't let everyone who has ( or thinks they have ) had their human rights abused go round assaulting people. You also seem to suggest that as you are unable to obtain legal advice ( altho it would appear that you have in fact been rejecting a number of solicitors advice ) , and that this somehow provides you with immunity from criminal charges. This is a little strange for a number of reasons :

1) If this were the case nobody would want a solicitor when they go to court ! Murderers would simply have to say they are unable to find representation and they would be set free !

2) If this was the case then your lawyers would be doing their job - if their refusal to represent you was preventing you being convicted then what more could a defendant facing what looks like an open and shut case of assault want ?

3) If you were correct in your analysis of law, nobody couldbe convicted in their abasence. This is incorrect. A quick google will show you that it is quite common. I've even provided you with an example

It appears that no matter how many times it is pointed out to "Damien", he (or she, they or whoever "Damien" actually is) simply cannot accept the factual existence of Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003 (Republic of Ireland): which very clearly states that "EVERYONE" charged with a criminal offence has certain well defined legal rights that have to be met if the public officials bringing the criminal charge wish to operate within the law.

If the public officials concerned are unwilling to provide those rights, they are operating outside the law - and consequently acting unlawfully.

The Article 6 legal rights I was denied have been listed in my letter to Minister for Justice McDowell dated August 4th 2006 - the text of which can be viewed at http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm .

Minister McDowell has not replied to my letter; and the reason he has not replied (in my view) is that he simply has no answer that he can state in writing. All he has got is his hidden corruption and his bullying; and, his ability - at the present time - to block every legal avenue that is available to me for the purpose of getting justice: including the one provided by Article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003 (Republic of Ireland), which reads as follows: 
 
"Everyone whose rights and freedoms as set forth in this Convention are violated shall have an effective remedy before a national authority notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by persons acting in an official capacity."

So far so good - as far as Minister McDowell's present position goes. But, the BIG question now is this:

Can Minister for Justice McDowell sustain his present position indefinitely? - having due regard for the fact that I have lost the use of my home in the Republic of Ireland as a result of his corruption, and that I am naturally very highly motivated to get it back: but, without giving in or kowtowing to the corrupt lawyers who have created and who are sustaining the present situation.

Only time will tell of course.

One final point: I personally believe that "Damien's" comments and analysis of my legal situation will have no bearing whatsoever on the eventual outcome of my case.

And shame as well on the "Education Minister" of the nation "Trigger" is a citizen of - whoever he/she/they might be? (Please see "Trigger" at "Sat Feb 17, 2007 00:58" above.)

Article 14. (1) of the The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads as follows:

"Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution."

Note for "Trigger" :

Instead of writing ignorant, "smart alec" comments regarding tiny parts of my well documented legal situation, which you select for your own corrupt purposes, might you not do better to first learn about the basics of human rights law? (Collins Dictionary on "Corrupt": from "corrumpere". Literally: to break into pieces.)

As can be seen via the link provided immediately below, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948. Both general and detailed information can be be found via
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Universal+Decl...earch

The important opening statement of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a large part of which specifically relates to "schools and other educational institutions", is contained - in full - in the following paragraph:

' On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights the full text of which appears in the following pages. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories." '

Why is it "Trigger" (whoever you are) that the teachers at your school appear to have decided to completely ignore what is probably the most important legal document ever written on the crucially important matter of human rights law? - in spite of the very simple, and extremely "socially benign" suggestion made by the United Nations in the paragraph above?

Also, and changing the subject slightly, why do you hide behind an anonymous name?

Is it by any chance because you wish to perversely promote the ABUSE of human rights law, and that you are too cowardly to do so in an open and honest way?

Finally, and returning to the main point of this particular comment from me, shame also on all of the corrupt "establishment" media who have so far failed "to cause it (i.e. The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights) to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded".

Allowing for the mountain of grossly irresponsible behaviour (by all concerned) outlined above, during the past 59 years or so, it is small wonder - is it not not? - that the world is in the shocking state it is at the present time?

Human rights law has nothing to do with the charge of assault levelled against you. I could point you towards the human rights laws where it states that people have the right not to be assaulted by others but I guess you don't really care about that part of it?

Bullying is defined as: “Repeated inappropriate behaviour, direct or indirect – whether verbal, physical or otherwise which could reasonably be regarded as undermining the individual’s right to dignity.”

Whilst it is possible that at some distant point in time there was an inappropriate intrusion on your land or ammenity, your conflict was created when you assaulted a public official. He did not assault or threaten you. Every other element of your conflict has been entirely of your own making in failing to answer for your conduct.

You have been repeatedly challenged to produce some explanation of state "bullying" and you have answered each challenge with yet another incomprehensible set of links to yet more incomprehensible correspondence.

>>> To: "Peter O'T" (whoever you are).

Neither I (nor anyone else) is under any obligation whatsoever to attend a court of law in the Republic of Ireland in circumstances whereby the public officials bringing the criminal charge are unwilling to provide the person being charged with the MINIMUM guarantees set out in Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003 (Republic of Ireland).

You can see for yourself what these guarantees are at: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2003_20.html , and you can also see the ones I was denied at http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm .

Do you not realise that the guarantees contained in Article 6 provide SAFEGUARDS to prevent "public servants" (so called) who might otherwise easily succeed in creating a "police state"? Or, is it, as in Minister McDowell's case I suspect, that you actually want to see the Republic of Ireland turned into a "police state"? - where he can lock up all those who get in the way of his plans for the future, and those of some of his extreme right-wing associates he meets up with occasionally at the highly secretive "Bilderberg Group". (Please see at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Justice+Minist...earch . )

Extradition is a very easily available option for Minister for Justice McDowell TD, if he really believes I am one of these people who are "getting away with their crimes" as you see things; and, allowing for your strong views on the subject which you have expressed above at "Domh Feabh 18, 2007 15:01", I would now like to take this opportunity to issue the following challenge, here on Indymedia (Ireland), for all the world to see, to Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD:

I dare you, Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD, to try to have me extradited from Northern Ireland back to the Republic of Ireland to face the alleged criminal offence I have been charged with against Mr Enda Hoey of Galway County Council.

Personally, and I may be proved wrong of course, I very much doubt if Minister for Justice McDowell will rise to the challenge I have set out for him in the paragraph just above: because he knows perfectly well that if he was to initiate the extradition process, he and several of his highly corrupt associates in the Republic of Ireland legal system (and elsewhere) would end up in very serious legal and political trouble, on account of what would have to come out (I believe) in a UK court of law in connection with an attempt to extradite me - factual and damning information over which Minister McDowell (in all probability, I hope) would have little or no control over.

>>> To: "Not confused" (whoever you are):

In an Oxford English Dictionary I looked up a little earlier, one definition of the word "bully" is as follows:

"A person who uses strength or power to coerce, hurt, persecute, or intimidate weaker persons".

As far as I am concerned, all of those I know who are trying to corruptly criminalise me, or trying to keep me living in forced exile for the rest of my life, fit the above description: including Mr Enda Hoey, the Galway County Council official I am alleged to have criminally assaulted. All concerned are misusing and abusing the law to bully me in extremely serious and completely unlawful ways for the purpose persecuting me: that is how I see it.

In the run-up to the 2002 General Election (in the Republic of Ireland), I tried to raise the issue of the "unconstitutional legislation" which Galway County Council managers were planning to use for the purpose of unlawfully locating TWO huge rubbish dumps within a mile or so each side of my home; and, in order to raise this particular issue, I placed an internet address on an existing wall of my brother's business premises. Within hours of the internet address appearing, my brother started to receive visits from Galway County Council public officials, and all of these visits involved demands the address for http://www.finnachta.com I had placed on the wall be removed immediately: even though (to the best of my knowledge) it was entirely 100% legal. In fact, and as far as I know, the sign is still there - some five years or so later.

Eventually Mr Enda Hoey arrived, at a time when I happened to be present at my brother's address, and his visit also turned out to be for the sole purpose of demanding the internet sign be removed immediately. I recognised Mr Hoey the moment I saw him, because I had asked him (in his office about a year earlier) for some help in dealing with unlawful sewage discharges from the local primary school near my home. As nothing had ever been done about the unlawful air and water pollution in question, during the 12 months or so since I had discussed the matter with him in his office, I asked Mr Hoey if he would please take a look at the nearby "school problem". When he absolutely and vehemently refused to do so, I shouted at him to clear off our premises. That was all there was to it, and I would like to stress that, for all the strong talk about "ASSAULT", I never at any point even touched Mr Hoey. Nevertheless, two guards (police) appeared at my brother's business premises the next day, and it later became clear that criminal charges were to be brought against me.

Getting back to the two huge rubbish dumps mentioned above, I later appealed to "An Bord Pleanala" about the now completed Kilconnell "superdump" (one of the two dumps in question), and a copy of my appeal can be viewed at http://www.finnachta.com/BordPleanalaAppeal.htm

In what I believe may well be their finest display of blatant corruption to date, An Board Pleanala completely ignored ALL of the five points I raised in my petition dated February 21st 2004: including the extremely serious matter of the alterations to the "Waste Management Amendment Act 2001" which very clearly violate Article 28A of Bunreacht na hEireann (the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland); and, which President Mary McAleese, the so-called "Guardian of the Constitution" has apparently signed her name to. 

Later this evening, I hope to send a copy of this Indymedia "comment" to some of the public officials mentioned above: including Minister for Justice McDowell TD. Provided all goes well, and keeping in mind there is plenty that can go wrong with such internet operations, I will also place a copy at the following address:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...l.htm

By doing this, I hope it will be easier for all of us (whoever all you anonymous but none too courageous people are) to keep an eye on how Minister for Justice McDowell responds to the "extradition" challenge I have set out for him above.

For myself, I genuinely hope and pray that Minister for Justice McDowell will try to extradite me; and, the sooner he tries it, the better I will like it.

William,

One of the fascinating things about your ramblings are the grandiose delusions you have.

You seem to think that Minister McDowell has even heard your name. I can assure you he has not, nor would he care. You are one of thousands of people named in bail warrants that have not been executed. No more, no less. Do you really think *anyone* that you send your emails to reads them? I think its pretty safe to say that once their PA see's the name William Finnerty they delete it.

Even more bizarre is your rationale behind why the government would even want to criminalise you. Firstly, hundreds of people would have objected to the incinerator. Why single you out? Are you really so egotistical to think that you and only you had the power to prevent the incinerators construction?

Secondly, even if they did criminalise you, how would that have helped in the construction of the incinerator? Nothing ! If ( and its a big bloody if ) they were terrified of the objection you would lodge ( even tho they never prevented you lodging it ) AND they decided to prevent you lodging other objections why wouldnt they just have you shot or run over?

After almost five years of writing your emails to the worlds leaders do you not think that its about time to give up?

I was "Confused" in one of your other rambling, delusionary threads and expressed a genuine interest in "bullying by public officials", but you are a smug, egotistical buffoon responsible for your own victimhood.

"bully": "A person who uses strength or power to coerce, hurt, persecute, or intimidate weaker persons".

Perhaps Mr Enda Hoey, the Galway County Council official you are alleged to have criminally assaulted might apply that same label to a member of the public beating him to the ground during the course of his lawful employment serving the public?

If thats all there was too it why did you not defend the matter? An assault can be occasioned even without physical contact, by the way.

Your self serving posts just highlight the delusional nature of your view of the system of law and order in this country. To choose martyrdom by fleeing to the North is utterly disproportionate to any sane person. Which, I guess, is the key issue here.

William,

You had what you felt was a genuine complaint against the local Gardai, the County Council, the Planning Authority, etc. You had a perfect opportunity to voice your concerns by simply going to court. Why didn't you take it? You seem to think that EVERYONE is out to get you. Why don't you simply just go home. Let the process run it's course - you'll see that you are completely wrong in your assessment of reality..

The more "anonymous (and cowardly)" comments I read on this thread, the more amusing it all gets for me.

I fully understand why you are all so afraid to let readers know who you really are. If I was writing such rubbish, I would certainly be hiding behind anonymous names as well.

While I genuinely cannot be sure if the "Minister McDowell has even heard your name" comment (by Damien at Tue Feb 20, 2007 01:28 above) is correct, I do know that the Committee on Petitions of the European Parliament has heard of it - as can be seen via the the Indymedia (Ireland) Article at the following address:
http://ie.indymedia.org/article/71456

I also know that if Minister for Justice Mc Dowell TD, Prime Minister Ahern TD, and President Mary McAleese had read the information I sent through the registered post March 05, 2001, there would never have been any need for me to lodge EU Petition 1018/2003.

The March 5th 2001 information referred to above can be viewed at:
http://homepage.eircom.net/~williamfinnerty/sd1.htm

As far as I know, the section of the planned multi-million N6 Upgrade Toll Road (which was scheduled to go through Turoe & Knocknadala near my home in County Galway) never got built, and the reason it never got built is because the "European Regional Development Fund" decided not to fund it: as a direct result of EU Petition 1018/2003.

What rubbish you all write? - and what will you come up with next I wonder?

You're not by any chance writing on behalf of Minister McDowell by any chance? - in circumstances where he is limited to the "silence of corruption".

William,

If the road is not being built, you should take credit for the part you played.

You did not comment on my suggestion to simply go home.. Do you not think I might be right, even to degree...?

Iteresting to hear the news of how you have stopped the construction of the N6 upgrade.

I'm sure the news will be particularly interesting to Galway county council who are expecting construction to begin in 2007 - http://www.galway.ie/roads/n6_bsloe/index.html

It will also be very interesting to the national roads authority who put the tenders out - http://www.nra.ie/PublicPrivatePartnership/ProjectTrack...sloe/

But I think noone will be more suprosed than the ICON consortium who were annouced as the preferred bidders in December of 2006.

So either all these people are wrong or you are wrong. Looks to me like your letters were a waste of time.

Which do you think it is?

The petition which you believe was directly responsible for preventing the N6 was closed on its first reading - the commission took no other action other than to bin it. Check the minutes for the meeting if you don't believe me.

Frank,

You are possibly not aware (I suspect) that there is an extant warrant for my arrest in the Republic of Ireland?

Allowing for this extant arrest warrant, and for the fact that the whole legal profession, and the whole legal system in the Republic of Ireland is red-rotten with corruption from head to toe, I do not have the slightest intention of "going home": until (and if) the time comes when I consider it to be safe for me to do so.

You may wish to also know that I STILL have not received any reply from either Prime Minister Ahern TD, or from Chief Justice John L. Murray, to the registered letters I sent to them on December 12th 2006. The text of the letter in question, together with Post Office registration details, can be viewed at:
http://www.europeancourtofhumanrightswilliamfinnerty.co...r.htm

The fact that both Prime Minister Ahern, and Chief Justice John L. Murray, are staying "silent" regarding these letters (i.e. "whatever you say, say nothing" type silence), is a sure sign - as far as I'm concerned - that they wish to sustain the mountain of corruption they are sitting on. And don't forget we're talking about "systemic" corruption here, and that it's not simply a matter of one or two "rotten apple" in the barrel. The WHOLE barrel is rotten.

Damien,

I never claimed to have stopped the construction of the N6 Upgrade through Turoe & Knocknadala.

What I said was that I sent a petition to the European Parliament: AFTER Prime Minister Ahern TD, Minister for Justice McDowell TD (who was Attorney General at the time), and President Mary McAleese ALL completely ignored the information I sent to them through the registered post on March 5th 2001; and, that as a direct result of my petition apparently, the European Regional Development Fund decided not to fund the road through "Knocknadala" - which means "Hill of Parliament" in the Celtic language, and which is the ONLY place in Ireland with that particular name.

In my view, this was a very wise decision by the European politicians and administrators concerned, having due regard for the fact that there is a huge amount of evidence to support the view that Knocknadala formed a major part of the Celtic "capital" of Iron Age Ireland, and which had the world famous Turoe Stone sitting just a few hundred yards away from it. Part of this evidence is to be found on the ancient map of Ireland by the much renowned and highly regarded Greek mathematician Ptolemy (circa 87 to 150 AD), where the Turoe/Knocknadala area appears as the "REGIA" shown near the Galway Bay area:
http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Gazetteer/Periods...y/2/1*.html

If you lived in the Knocknadala area of County Galway during the run-up to the 2002 General Election, as I did, you would know that Galway County Council - and all (or almost all) the local politicians - were making and propagating the strongest of statements to the effect that work on the local section of the N6 (through Knocknadala) would begin "before the end of the year". That was almost five years ago now, and work has still not begun. Consequently, and correctly or otherwise, I suspect the contents of the two page links you have provided above are nothing more than "pie in the sky", to the tune of "whistling Dixie". (Notice how there is no mention at your links about the decision of the European Parliament's Committee on Petitions to not fund the project.)

I don't think you have read the information at the http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meetdocs/2004_2009/docume...n.pdf you have provided very carefully. Neither do you appear to understand that all petitions to the European Parliament are "closed" (in so far as possible). It also appears to me that you have not read ANY of the three pages at http://www.constitutionofireland.com/EuropeanParliament...3.htm which I provided above: and if you had, you would not be making the ignorant, hasty, and stupid remarks you seem determined to continue on with.

Has nobody yet told you that when you come rushing back with your comments (in the way you do), that it is a sure sign you are not giving nearly enough thought to what you are writing? In other words you are behaving like a childish and a thoughtless idiot who is having a very hard time trying to grow up.

Are you joking when you say that you never claimed to have stopped the construction of the road, or just making things up? Your previous post included : "the reason it never got built is because the "European Regional Development Fund" decided not to fund it: as a direct result of EU Petition 1018/2003". Seems like a simple contradiction to me.

Are you trying to suggest that the European Parliament took your claim seriously? Perhaps I misunderstood, but when i read their reply which included:

"there was no evidence that directive 85/337/EEC has been contravened"
"substantive provisions on the provisions of protection of ancient monuments lie within the area of competence"
"as regards the statutatory process the petitioner presents no evidence to suggest that it is flawed"
"Directive 2001/42/EC....would not appear relevent"

I figured that they reckoned your petition was a waste of their time.

You also try to suggest that all petitions are closed ... this is quite funny. Most of the petitions are closed after they are referred to another body, its only the ones which they think are worthless that they close without taking any action.

William,

I'm fully aware of the warrant for your arrest. I've reviewed your website and the history.

However, without deviating to the other points re Turoe/Tara/N6, etc., can I focus on the point with regard to your return. What exactly do you expect would happen? Do you think the Gardai would be waiting at Dublin Airport to "pick you up"? Not for a second..! They have much bigger fish to fry..!

Look I was bullied for a number of years - examples of this include my car being vandalized and spray painted every week or two and my phone ringing off the hook with people thinking the are being funny. you dont know what bullying is, for you its all in your head, and in your emails that you have sent. big deal - you live a peacefull life in the north, so many others there are victims of real bullying and intimidation.
