Subject: Deux problèmes principaux

Fondamentalement, il y a deux problèmes
(ENGLISH: " Basically, there are two main problems: ")
1) les fonctionnaires agissant au nom du PEUPLE de la République
d'Irlande avaient systématiquement violé la loi fundemental de cet ÉTAT de
SOVERIGN pendant plusieurs années.
(ENGLISH: " 1) Public servants
acting on behalf of the PEOPLE of the Irish Republic have been
systematically violating the fundamental law of this SOVEREIGN STATE for
les fonctionnaires qui violent la loi ont
l'appui TOTAL de la profession légale dans la République de l'Irlande - de
sorte que ceux responsables de la loi-rupture ne puissent pas être pris
devant les cours de la loi.
(ENGLISH: " 2) The public servants who
are breaking the law have the FULL support of the legal profession in the
Republic of Ireland - so that those responsible for the law-breaking
cannot be taken before the courts of law. " )
Pour rendre des
sujets beaucoup pire, elle est évident que les violateurs de la loi ont
l'appui total de la profession médicale aussi bien - plus, en outre, le
plein suport des médias.
(ENGLISH: "To make matters much worse, it
appears the public servant law-breakers have the full support of the
medical profession as well - plus, in addition, the full support of the
media. " )
More to it ?

I'm not sure that allowing myself to get arrested is as
straightforward and useful as you believe: at least not in my particular
On December 6th last Gerald (my brother) had a meeting with a
lawyer in barrister John Glynn's office (i.e. Hogan & Co.) in
Ballinasloe regarding my situation.
In the middle of this meeting
I received a phone call from Gerald, and a few moments later I ended up
talking to the lawyer in question (who told me his name is
According to Mr Kennedy, I am in really BIG trouble
(because of my heritage and environmental protection activities).
was a bit surprised that when I spoke on the phone to Margie (my
half-sister) last Sunday, that she did not know about Mr Kennedy's very
severe view of things. Consequently, I sent a note to Margie a few days
later (on January 4th), and I have reproduced the text of the letter
Margie has now received this letter, and when I spoke with
her on the phone this morning she told me that Mr Kennedy has told Gerald
that he does not wish to have anything to do with this case.
far, I have not heard anything from Mr Geraghty (Fair Murtagh law firm)
regarding the letter I sent him on December 21st 2004 - which has now been
copied to the following address:
is also a copy of the Post Office registered letter receipt at the above
address for the letter I sent to Mr Geraghty on December 21st
I have recently received a reply from a lady named Anne Scott
at the Northern Ireland Ombudsman's office. Other than that, I have heard
nothing at all from any of the other public servants/organisations listed
in the "Cc:" section of the the e-mail reproduced at the
Tuesday January 4th 2005
When I spoke with you on Sunday (January 2nd) you did not
seem to be at all aware of the fact that the solicitor (Mr Kennedy) Gerald
spoke to on December 6th last seemed to think I was in really BIG
Mr Kennedy told me on the phone (just after Gerald phoned
me from John Glynn’s office) that: a) I could be arrested by the Garda
Siochana (Police) at anytime, anywhere, and taken before any court they
use; and, b) that the bail for my release would very likely be high –
maybe €10,000 - or possibly more even.
As far as I know, if the
bail money is not paid in the court at the time the Judge makes his/her
decision, then I will go straight to jail from the court; and, if I end up
in jail over this business, I do not believe I will ever come out alive.
It’s as simple as that for me (at the present time).
genuinely felt I could not cope with the kind of scenario I have outlined
above without going
COMPLETELY insane, I decided to go on-the-run in
the early hours of December 7th to a different
Northern Ireland, where the Garda Siochana have no powers to arrest
All relevant matters considered, and most of which Gerald,
Garda Tom Kenny (police), and the rest of the Gardai are all completely
ignoring (AT MY EXPENSE PLEASE NOTE, AND ENTIRELY FOR THEIR OWN
CONVENIENCE), I still believe I made the correct decision on December 7th
to leave the Republic of Ireland jurisdiction.
I don’t know why it
is that Gerald now appears to be completely ignoring what Mr Kennedy told
him (and me) on December 6th. When I spoke to Gerald on Sunday last he
told me he believes nothing will happen to me if I go back to the Republic
of Ireland – simply because Garda Tom Kenny told him so.
also told me on Sunday last that he had NOT read the copy of the letter
dated December 21st 2004 to Mr Geraghty that I sent to the two of you on
December 22nd. This left me feeling dismayed, and more depressed that I
have felt in a very long time.
In the very threatening
circumstances I find myself, verbal assurances from Garda Tom Kenny are of
no use whatsoever to me. It is much, much, too late now for that kind of
thing - as far as I am concerned.
At this stage I can only consider
assurances from the Garda which are stated in writing. Please note that
the e-mail letter I sent to Mr Geraghty on December 21st was copied to
Chief Garda Commissioner Noel Conroy (firstname.lastname@example.org), and to the
Assistant Garda Commissioner in Galway City (email@example.com) – as can
very clearly be seen in the CC: section (of the printed copy I sent to you
and Gerald). Please note that so far I have heard nothing at all from
either of these two Garda sources, or from anyone else.
Kenny or any of his colleagues in the Gardai wish to provide me with
assurances, they should send them to the e-mail address I have provided
for them all in the above mentioned letter dated December 21st 2004 to Mr
Geraghty (which is firstname.lastname@example.org ). I can assure you all that
any such assurances I receive from them through this address will be
considered very seriously by

is good to hear from you and to know you are well.
I have given a
lot of though about your situation and fully realise it is easy for me to
give advise from my warm seat behind my PC. I have always disliked
If I were in your position I would return to
base. I would sit in my front lawn and when arrested give only my name,
address, date of birth.
You will be entitled to a phone call. Call
me and I will be with you as soon as I can.
You are an
environmental activist, you have not broken the law, you have committed no
crime. It is not a crime to highlight environmental damage and as an
activist it is your duty to do so.
Under Local Agenda 21 you are
obliged to do so. When arrested you will be a political
Again I know it is easy for me to sit
here and say this. While I would not wish my worst enemy to be in your
position I would trade places with you if I could. I know you are
terrified of been locked up. I would not like it much my self but know I
would handle it better than you. (No disrespect).
The way I see it
is that NGOs have to enter court as defendants to get justice. We saw some
activist with 200,000 costs the other day. Communities cannot defend
themselves through the courts with out free legal aid and the only way to
get free legal aid is to be a defendant.
I know it is easy for me
to say this but I did accuse others of embezzlement looking for MY day in
The Majority of conflict through the World has been about
800 years here, Nelson Mandella, The Celts V The
I suspect that there will be a lot of civil unrest in
2005. The people of Ireland did not lie down under the jack boot of the
British Empire and I hope, with the exception of Monica Leach will not lie
down under the corrupt Minister Cullens laws.
PS If possible get arrested South of the
History of conflict ...
