Dear Mr Mills,
I have recently received an e-mail from Ms Anne Scott in the Northern
Ireland Ombudsman's office; and, she has suggested that I should contact you
(initially) regarding a complaint I made just before Christmas which involves
consultant psychiatrist Dr Foster.
The nature, and the context, of my complaint concerning Dr Foster can be
seen among a set of e-mails I sent to Mr Geraghty (lawyer) last
month. Please find a reproduced copy of the set of e-mails in question
below, immediately beneath my postal address. Dr Foster is referred to in
the 3rd e-mail from the top. (Should you prefer, this set of e-mails, together
with a copy of Post Office registered receipt, can also be viewed now at
the following www address:
Although I have provided my home postal address for you below, please note
that I am unable to collect mail from that address (in the Republic of Ireland)
at the present time, and that I do not have any fixed address in Northern
Ireland. Consequently, I would be very grateful if you
could reply to me using the same address I am sending this e-mail
letter from (i.e.

Later today I will send a printed and signed copy of this e-mail to you (by
registered post) to the following address:

Tyrone & Fermanagh Hospital,
Omagh BT79 ONS.
As my present situation is far from good, I look forward to
hearing from you at your earliest convenience please.

Dear Mr Geraghty,
Assuming, as appears to me to be the case,
that your thoughts (and your efforts?) regarding the possibility of amicably
resolving the matter of the extant warrant for my arrest have come to nothing,
please note that I now wish to sue the State for the wrongful acts of public
servants which I have been subjected to - as I have already indicated to you in
my e-mail dated November 29th (which has been copied to the following Internet
I will send a signed copy of this e-mail to you later
today through the registered post.
Please note that the attempt to
corruptly criminalise me, and to possibly lock me up in jail as well I suspect,
in connection with a "crime" which has been INVENTED, is just one of a long list
of wrongful acts by public servants that I have been exposed to since
For the purpose of starting proceedings, which I wish you to begin
as SOON as possible please, the wrongful act which concerns me most at the
present time is the one relating to the Aarhus Convention Agreement (referred to
In terms of benefits for the People of the Republic of Ireland
(whose numbers include myself of course), and with due regard for its enormous
potential to reduce a wide and growing range of social problems in our society,
I view the Aarhus Convention Agreement as the most important international
agreement of its kind ever to have been signed.
Despite its widely
recognised importance (among those who have managed to find out about it despite
all of the well organised and almost water-tight censorship), our government has
been doing everything it possibly can to keep the People of the Republic of
Ireland completely in the dark regarding the Aarhus Convention Agreement: to the
amazing extent that it has been blatantly violating a very important section of
the fundamental law of the State (i.e. Article 29.5.1 of the Republic of Ireland
Constitution) for several years now.
As many who are well informed on
the subject would readily agree (I believe), what happens in the Republic of
Ireland regarding the Aarhus Convention Agreement may well have huge knock-on
effects for the Peoples of many other states in Europe, and in the rest of the
world as well.
As can be seen below, I have now raised the matter of
law-breaking by government with Prime Minister Ahern, and with 231 other
Oireachtas members, through a set of 8 e-mails sent in recent days similar to
the one further down dated Sat, 18 Dec 2004.
If I am arrested, I intend
to hand a copy of this e-mail to the person/s concerned, refer them to your law
firm (Fair Murtagh), and then remain silent.
If I am taken before the
courts against my wishes, it is my intention to remain silent (which I assume I
have a legal right to do): unless and until such time as I have a lawyer BY MY
SIDE in court to defend me, who is THOROUGHLY familiar with my

In fear for my life, and with due regard for the contents of
the two e-mails copied below, I hurriedly left the Republic of Ireland
jurisdiction in the early hours of December 7th 2004.
Later that day
(i.e. December 7th 2004), I was admitted to hospital under the care of
Consultant Psychiatrist Dr. Foster in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern
Much to my surprise, and to the surprise of hospital staff, I
was suddenly discharged from hospital yesterday - straight out onto the street,
and COMPLETELY against my wishes. Dr Foster claimed (repeatedly) this was
entirely in order for him to do this because he could find no evidence that I
was suffering from any form of mental illness. Requests by me for a second
opinion (on the decision to discharge me yesterday) from a different consultant
psychiatrist were also repeatedly refused.
Dr Foster's actions seem to
mirror the actions of Dr. Jacque Maurice in Shrewsbury in or around October
2002. At first they were both very helpful; and then, suddenly and without any
reasonable explanation, they both appeared to go cold and withdraw their help:
as though they had been instructed by their superiors to do so. In the case of
Dr. Foster, his unexplained change-of-heart was ruthlessly vicious and
insulting, and witnessed by several members of staff.
Requests made to
discuss my safety situation with members of the Northern Ireland police force,
BEFORE I was discharged from hospital yesterday, were also repeatedly refused:
for no good reason that I know of. Consequently, I am now afraid to seek help
from members of the Northern Ireland police force.
My money is running
out and I do not feel well enough, or safe enough, to go through the process of
having money transferred to me from the Republic of Ireland to a Northern
Ireland bank. Consequently, I now fear that I will soon end up living on the
Please note that Dr Foster and his support staff were all made
fully aware of my overall situation at various times during my recent seven day
stay in hospital. Please also note that I am copying this e-mail to the
Secretary of the Northern Ireland Health & Social Services Board, in the
hope that the person in question will URGENTLY investigate
Dr Foster's behaviour
relating to my recent treatment in Omagh under his care.
As my ongoing
situation has all along involved a number of very basic human rights issues, I
am now copying this e-mail to the Northern Ireland Ombudsman, the UK Ombudsman,
the Republic of Ireland Ombudsman, and the European Community
I am also copying this e-mail to the Northern Ireland police:
in the hope that I will receive a written assurance from them (i.e. an e-mail to
the address provided below) that it is safe for me to go to a police station to
discuss my present security situation with them.
Please let me know what
(if anything) you, or your lawyer colleagues at Fair-Murtagh plan to do
regarding my present situation (as outlined above). Despite Ciara Macklin's
request below, I am reluctantly copying this e-mail to her nonetheless. This is
because I have not received any reply from you to a number of letters I have
sent to you through the registered post during the past two years or so. Working
from memory only, there are at least two such letters, and possibly as many as
four. In addition, I have not received any reply to several e-mails I have sent
to both yourself, and to Mr Egan (Principal Lawyer at Fair-Murtagh) during the
Finally, I would ask you and your lawyer colleagues at Fair
Murtagh to please take PARTICULAR note of the fact the Senator Jim Higgins MEP
has recently asked Prime Minister Ahern TD (in writing) why he has failed to
comply with Article 29.5.1 of the Republic of Ireland Constitution regarding the
international United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement signed by the Republic
of Ireland in 1998. To view a copy of Senator Higgins e-mail to me on this

unfortunately I have only just opened your email as I was not

guards are making arrangements to bring you to court and there is nothing we can
do about that. Mr Geraghty is in court today and we never indicated to you on
Monday that he would not be available for Wednesday. In the event he was still
ill another solicitor from this office would be attending and you could not
avoid your obligation to appear in court.
As I am not familiar with your

correspondance to him directly.

(Wednesday December 8th 2004)
Dear Ms Macklin,
meeting when I called to your office in Ballinasloe this afternoon, it is now my
understanding that Mr Geraghty is ill in bed and that he will not be able to be
in court to defend me on Wednesday in Loughrea.
Under these circumstances
(which are of course completely beyond my control), it would be much appreciated
if you could contact the appropriate people in the court system to defer my
being taken before the courts until such time as I have a lawyer who is familiar
with my case to defend me.
As I mentioned to you this afternoon, I feel I
very badly need the services of lawyer who is willing to defend me against the
wrongful acts of public servants who are acting on behalf of the State; and,
that without such a lawyer, PLEASE NOTE that I am TERRIFIED of appearing before
the courts. It is PRECISELY because I was unable to find such a lawyer that I
did not attend the court in Loughrea in October 2002. Unfortunately, and despite
my best efforts during the two years in between, I STILL cannot find such a
lawyer. I do not see this as my fault. I see it as the fault of the legal system
in the Republic of Ireland: which appears to be acting as an arm (or fist) of
the Government - with no regard for the tripartite separation of powers embedded
in our constitution.
I repeat, after searching for several years, both
before and after October 2002, I STILL CANNOT FIND A LAWYER WHO WILL DEFEND ME
AGAINST THE WRONGFUL ACTS OF PUBLIC SERVANTS ACTING ON BEHALF OF THE
Please note that I have ALREADY provided Mr Geraghty and Mr Egan
with much written evidence over the past 23 months or so of wrongful acts
committed by public servants acting on behalf of the State: and that much of
this evidence can be seen on the pages of the three Internet web sites listed

With regard to the request I have made in paragraph 2
above, I trust you will take full account of the contents of the copies of the
