"True, some members of our legal profession do obviously know that our European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003 is very good for window-dressing purposes on the international stage: but, how many of them are willing to even discuss this particular Act with their clients, let alone use it for the purpose of protecting them?"


Expecting ECHR type help?
by W. Finnerty. Fri Aug 14, 2009 20:05

What evidence is there that any member of our legal profession knows or cares anything about using the European Convention on Human Rights in connection with the practical matter of applying it to protect our citizens from abuse of the kind Niall Harnett is being subjected to at the hands of our public servants and public bodies?

I certainly don't know of any.

If any of them did know, and did care, I believe Niall Harnett would not now be in  JAIL.

True, some members of our legal profession do obviously know that our "European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003" is very good for window-dressing purposes on the international stage: but, how many of them are willing to even discuss this particular Act with their clients, let alone use it for the purpose of protecting them?

I certainly have never been able to find one; and, by way of providing an example of the EXTREME difficulties involved, please note that I am still waiting for a reply from Barrister John Glynn (Principal Lawyer at Patrick Hogan & Co, Ballinasloe, County Galway, Republic of Ireland) to the letter I sent to him through the registered post on April 3rd 2007 in connection with the ECHR Article 13 ("Right to an effective remedy") issue I then wrote to him about. A copy of the letter in question can be viewed at:
