Dear Chief Inspector Winters,
With reference to my e-mail letter of yesterday (i.e. June 5th 2009) to Ivan Armstrong (Housing Executive District Manager for Omagh), a copy of which can be viewed at Internet location , I would be very grateful to you if you could please let me have written confirmation (sent to my brother's address in County Galway) that I will not be arrested by the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) if I return to my address in Greencastle (Omagh) for the purpose of collecting the property belonging to me which is located there.

In considering this matter, it would be much appreciated if you would please take account of the fact that, in a range of diverse ways, I have been trying my best -- for several years now -- to make progress regarding the outstanding legal issues involved; and, that the efforts I refer to include the registered letter I sent to Gerry Madden (Omagh based Senior Social Worker) on December 19th 2008. A copy of the letter in question, together with a copy of the associated Post Office receipt, can be viewed at . Unfortunately, and despite a number of efforts since then, including some made on my behalf at my request during recent weeks by Paula Street (Social Worker based in Loughrea, County Galway, who is a member of Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Anne Jeffers's Team), I have still not received any acknowledgement of receipt from Gerry Madden for this particular letter: which, please note, involves a number of extremely important and core legal issues from my viewpoint. Consequently, I still do not even know if Gerry Madden has ever received the registered letter in question or not ???

One of the main obstacles to progress for me -- which is fully ongoing -- is that I cannot find a lawyer who is willing to advise me (or to represent me in any way, shape, or form) in regard to the legal issues set out at the Internet address immediately above. With this in mind, I am copying this e-mail to The Rt Hon First Minister of Northern Ireland Peter Robinson MP MLA, in the hope that he might be able to supply me with contact information for some lawyers, and/or some law firms perhaps, who will advise and represent me regarding the legal issues in question. Please note carefully though that in connection with this request for help, I am not seeking lists of people and places I could try (as I already have plenty of such lists); what I am seeking is contact information for lawyers and/or law firms who will actually advise and represent me in connection with the legal matters in question: as opposed to informing me that -- for one reason or another -- they do not, or cannot, take on such work.

As I have stated in my letter to Catherine Friel (Senior Housing Officer, Omagh Housing Executive) at I see impunity as the core obstacle that is preventing a just and peaceful resolution to the long drawn out and complex set of psychological abuses -- and all the mental torture associated with them -- that I have unhappily been subjected to, and have been forced to live with, during the past 10 years or so (which are very largely still ongoing please note); and, that with all this in mind, it would be much appreciated if you could briefly outline for me (in writing please) what PSNI policy is on impunity?

With reference to my letter to you at please note that, very thankfully, I have recently found the medical help I have long been seeking -- several years after receiving the "To Whom It Concern Letter" dated October 28th 2005 from Omagh based Dr Michael McCavert GP (scanned copy at ) -- for the Complex-Post Traumatic Disorder (C-PTSD) I am suffering from. Please also note though that, as indicated in the text of this particular e-mail, and in the letters at the various Internet links provided in this particular e-mail, I still cannot find "the services of a lawyer who fully recognises the factual existence of human rights law (as set out by the United Nations), and who is fully prepared to use it on my behalf for my protection": which, as I feel sure you will recall, I informed you about in my June 2nd 2008 letter to you.

I look forward to receiving a written reply from you regarding the above matters at your earliest convenience please.

For future reference purposes I will later today place a copy of this e-mail at the following Internet location:

Yours sincerely,

William Finnerty.
