Subject: Meeting with Gerard Madden and William Finnerty on June 30th 2005
To: "Adrian O'Kane \(Solicitor at Patrick Fahy & Co.\)"
CC: "Gerard J Madden \(Senior Social Worker\)"     

Dear Mr O' Kane,

It is my understanding that Mr Gerard Madden (Senior Social Worker with the Omagh Community Mental Health Team) has arranged a meeting with you for 2.30 pm on Thursday June 30th 2005.

Both he and I plan to attend the meeting on June 30th.

I also intend to take copies of the five most recent items of written correspondence connected with my case to the meeting on June 30th, in the hope that it will be possible to briefly discuss a number of the more important points they contain.

A list of the five items of correspondence is provided below, and the texts can be viewed via the associated Internet links placed close by.

Basically, and despite the fact that I have been charged with a criminal offence in the Republic of Ireland, and that there is an associated extant warrant for my arrest (issued in October 2002), I have not, so far, been able to find a lawyer who will help me to prepare my defence.

As my case involves human rights issues, myself and Gerard Madden have very briefly discussed Article 6.3.b and Article 6.3.c of the "Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms" (Council of Europe).  As you will know, they read as follows: "... b) to have adequate time and facilities for the preparation of his defence; c) to defend himself in person or through legal assistance of his own choosing or, if he has not sufficient means to pay for legal assistance, to be given it free when the interests of justice so require; ... "  ( Text in quotes taken from )

I look forward to meeting you on June 30th.

Yours sincerely,

William Finnerty.

The Århus Convention Agreement
 (3 Main Points)

The Århus Convention establishes a number of rights of the public (citizens and their associations) with regard to the environment. Public authorities (at national, regional or local level) are to contribute to allowing these rights to become effective. The Convention provides for:

  1. The right of everyone to receive environmental information that is held by public authorities (“access to environmental information”). This can include information on the state of the environment, but also on policies or measures taken, or on the state of human health and safety where this can be affected by the state of the environment. Citizens are entitled to obtain this information within one month of the request and without having to say why they require it. In addition, public authorities are obliged, under the Convention, to actively disseminate environmental information in their possession;

  2. The right to participate from an early stage in environmental decision-making. Arrangements are to be made by public authorities to enable citizens and environmental organisations to comment on, for example, proposals for projects affecting the environment, or plans and programmes relating to the environment, these comments to be taken into due account in decision-making, and information to be provided on the final decisions and the reasons for it (“public participation in environmental decision-making”);

  3. The right to challenge, in a court of law, public decisions that have been made without respecting the two aforementioned rights or environmental law in general (“access to justice”).

National Development Plan

"The NDP is the largest and most ambitious investment plan ever drawn up for Ireland. It involves an investment of over  EUR 52 billion  of Public, Private and EU funds (in 1999 prices) over the period 2000-2006. The Plan involves significant investment in health services, social housing, education, roads, public transport, rural development, industry, water and waste services, childcare and local development."
