Subject: Re: [bullyonline] Bullying in court
Dear Clifford,
My problems relate to what (for want of a better term) I tend to think of as "political, legal, and corporate corruption"; and, my attempts to openly challenge this very virulent, insidious and rotten combination - which appears to me to be taking place on a massive and ever growing scale in several countries all over the world, and which is being powerfully fanned (morning, noon, and night it seems to me) by misleading talk that uses euphemistic and alluring words and phrases such as "globalisation", "opening up world markets", "competition", "world trade", "prosperity", "fighting terrorism", "spreading democracy" (very heavily corrupted plutocracy more like?), and so on.

All of these things (apart from the heavily corrupted plutocracy) are fine by me - providing that "human rights law" is securely globalised first - which, unfortunately, appears to me to be the very last thing the perpetrators and beneficiaries of the corruption in question wish to see happen.  Like oil and water, human rights law, and human rights abuse and exploitation, do not mix.
My problems also of course relate to the very severe psychological torture and injury (involving Complex PTSD)I have suffered over the past several years as a direct consequence of the above, and the fact that there seems to be no practical means (at the present time) by which problems relating to such psychological torture and injury - often delivered through the hands of so called "public servants", or "public officials" in United Nations terminology - can satisfactorily be resolved from the viewpoint of the victims of such abuse. 
If you start to read the letters and e-mails at the following address, I believe you should fairly quickly get the gist of things from my particular viewpoint - and I hope that may help you to decide if my experiences are of any use to you or not for your specific purposes: . (Please note you will need to scroll down the page a little way to get to where the list of e-mails and letters begin.)
I feel it probably is "all about the same thing" - which is the systemic corruption associated with the abuse of power by public officials and others (which the "traditional" media are wholeheartedly supporting): and the unwillingness of the legal profession to use the vast array of human rights laws that are already in place to keep such abuse in check.  Basically, it appears to me that the legal profession (taken as a whole) is providing the "keystone" type of support which enables all this corruption to flourish - together with all the directly connected social problems such as Complex PTSD (
including the "explosive anger" symptom), depression, suicide, suicide bombers, terrorism, tribalism, resistance movements, warfare, etcetera: which I tend to mostly see as the "unwanted children" of such corruption. And, as bullies normally do, the "Superbullies" responsible for the corruption I have felt compelled to confront, and to keep on confronting, have gone on to supercharge the original damage by unlawfully punishing me for challenging their initial bout of unlawful behaviour - so that the only way I can now avoid being corruptly criminalised is to completely abandon my home and live in forced exile in a different jurisdiction.

Incidentally, my "crime" is to have shouted at a public official (or "public servant" in Republic of Ireland terminology) who refused to look at an unlawful sewage discharge from the Primary School
near my home (in County Galway), which is managed I understand by the local Parish Priest (Fr Pat Kenny), and which enters the river going through the village about 100 yards or so upstream from the pump-house for the local community water supply. Further information relating to this and other illegal sewage discharges near my home can be found at:

The local government (Galway County Council) public official (Mr Enda Hoey) was in the village at the time for the purpose of trying to force me to take down a sign which contained an Internet address that carried information relating to Article 28A.1 of the Constitution of Ireland ("Bunreacht na hEireann") - and which local and central government obviously did not want the general public to know anything about in the run-up to the May 2002 General Election, because it would get in the way of their unconstitutional and unlawful plans to locate two huge rubbish dumps in the area (virtually on top of the Esker Riada, the most important by far of the "Five Great Roads of Ancient Ireland"): one of which is to be located in New Inn near the world famous
Turoe Stone, and the other by Greenstar / National Toll Roads in Kilconnell near Woodlawn House (the 1600s ancestral home of the present Lord Ashtown). Further information relating to the "Internet" road-sign can be found at .

Information concerning my failed attempts to get legal help with the preparation of my court defence, which included letters sent through the registered post to Prime Minister Ahern TD and the Director of Public Prosecutions (Mr James Hamilton) can be seen at: . Please note, as can be seen at this last address, that I also sought help from several European Union "public officials" - including, for example, the then European Union Commissioner for Health, Mr David Byrne (who, if my memory serves me correctly, is a senior Dublin lawyer).

I noticed today what is perhaps a much more "Christian perspective" than mine at the following Indymedia location:  - where efforts by a nun to "unmask the false religion and worship of national security" have resulted in "41 months of incarceration" for a certain Sister Ardeth Platte.

For myself, and without wishing to be disrespectful to anyone, my experiences of the past several years have left me seriously wondering if "The Original Sin" ("flaw", "weakness", or whatever?) might have had much more to do with the kind of thinking which lays behind the corruption (i.e. the several different forms of very contrived, high-powered, guile-ridden and greedy human deceptions and fragmentations associated with severe shortfalls in the personal integrity of individual human beings, particularly those "in positions of power") - than with the apples and snakes Adam and Eve get so much blame for?

All of this must surely mean more "big business" for the millions of friendly dogs who have almost no capacity to be dishonest!!  Maybe this explains why so many people seem to find that friendly dogs provide much better (and safer) company than their fellow human beings?

Anyway, I am entirely happy for you to share my experiences with others in your book - and should you wish to mention the Internet address in your book that's fine by me. Basically, I believe your idea of mentioning other peoples' struggles in relation to your own is a very good one.

Also, I could (if you consider it necessary) communicate a little with you perhaps to explain things a bit more to you should you decide to use some of my material.  However, I cannot guarantee anything because of my present situation regarding the Complex PTSD I now suffer from, and the fact that the psychological injury concerned cannot sensibly be treated (as far as I know) until the ongoing mental torture I'm being subjected to is somehow stopped; I trust you will understand and accept these difficulties which I have at the present time.
With every good wish to you regarding the success of your book, and thank you for contacting me and the interest you have shown in my particular struggle.
William Finnerty.

  Hi, William.  I am in the U.S. and my own unfortunate psychological terrorism and trauma was launched by a politician and carried out by political heavyweights and their pawns.  I would like to know more of what is happening to you.  I am re-writing a book to be published on the destructive nature of gossip, i.e. character assassination and/or whispering campaigns, from the Christian perspective.  The book will go with just my story but I have been trying to collect true experiences of others to round it out.  What happened to me may not strike a chord in someone who underwent something different even though it is all the same thing.  If you are able and willing to share for this purpose would you please contact me at
  Thanks and best wishes to you.

Section 2 ("Offence of torture"):

Why is it that Judge Mangan, like law firm Hogan & Co (County Galway), also appears to have not yet heard anything about the "CRIMINAL JUSTICE (UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION AGAINST TORTURE) ACT, 2000" (Republic of Ireland)? - and "Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment" (United Nations)?
"  'Why it is that nobody at Hogan & Co., Ballinasloe (law firm) appears to have yet heard anything about the 'CRIMINAL JUSTICE (UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION AGAINST TORTURE) ACT 2000' (Republic of Ireland) is a complete mystery to me at the present time.  Please note this Act is based on the United Nations 'CONVENTION AGAINST TORTURE and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment': which is "tailor made" to provide legal protection for the kind of mental torture I am being subjected to by 'public officials'.
