Dear Republic of Ireland Minister for Justice Francis Fitzgerald TD,

In connection with an alleged charge of "assault against a police officer", taken against me by Guard (Republic of Ireland Police Officer) Brendan Quirke QA 517 last Wednesday (July 16th 2014), at Barrack Street Garda Station, Loughrea, County Galway, Republic of Ireland, I have been advised by local lawyer Sheenagh MacCarthy, Partner and Accredited Mediator & Consultative Lawyer at Loughrea Law-Firm "F.G. MacCarthy, Solicitors", that under no circumstances could she provide me with any assurance whatsoever that she would be able to use any of the large array of national and international legislation based on the United Nations Universal Declaration Rights in connection with my defence.

I was thinking (in particular) of pieces of "human rights" legislation such as (for example) Article 47 of the Charter of the Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

As evidenced by the registered letter I sent on December 21st 2009 to Baroness Catherine Ashton of Upholland, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and Vice-President of the European Commission, I have been trying for a very long time now to find an "effective remedy" (of the kind associated with Article 47 of the Charter of the Fundamental Rights of the European Union) for the now large, and still growing, set of difficulties I have been been experiencing (since mid-1998) in connection with a diverse range of efforts of mine to challenge -- by peaceful and lawful means -- what I have gradually come to think of as the phenomenon of "Government Corruption, Crime, Cover Ups, Bullying, and Impunity". A scanned copy of the registered letter in question (which was copied to former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown MP, and to former Republic of Ireland Prime Minister Brian Cowan TD), together with scanned copies of the associated Post Office receipts, can be viewed at the following www location:

Unfortunately, and despite a number of reminders, I have never (to date) received any reply of any kind -- not even an "acknowledgement of receipt" -- from Baroness Ashton to my registered letter to her of December 21st 2009 (referred to in the paragraph immediately above): which has long since been a source of deep concern for me, and which has very significantly been added to last Wednesday, by Sheenagh MacCarthy's stated inability to be able to provide me with any assurance whatsoever that she would be able to use any "human rights" law in connection my defence. It was entirely for this reason, and none other, that I refused to sign the form (last Wednesday) which I understand she needed me to do: in order to be paid for her visit (on my behalf) to Loughrea Garda Station last Wednesday evening.

For much less obvious, and far more indirect reasons, I also refused to sign the form that "I had not been abused in any way while being held in police custody in Loughrea Garda Station": and this was entirely because of the fact that, despite the way I have provided the Republic of Ireland Police with an enormous amount of evidence of what I see as "government wrongdoing" since mid-1998 or so, nobody (that I know of) has ever been charged with any offence in connection with my evidence. Though the evidence in question was added to (by me), through the use of a "marked-up" copy of an "e-mail printout" I provided Guard Quirke QA 517 with last Wednesday (July 16th 2014), just moments before he decided to arrest me in New Inn village, none of the police officers ever made any reference to it last Wednesday (while I was in their custody).

A copy of the "full text" of the "marked-up e-mail printout" referred to in the paragraph immediately above -- titled "The present location of the world-famous Turoe Stone?" -- which I gave to Guard Quirke (QA 517) last Wednesday evening (July 16th 2014), can be viewed at the following www location:

Apart from the difficulties related above, I would like to make it clear that I have no other complaints to make in connection with the way I was treated while in police custody at Loughrea Garda Station last Wednesday evening. Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Guard Murray (and his Garda colleague who replaced him at the end of his shift) for the very professional way they both handled all other matters: particularly regarding my request to be allowed access to a lawyer, and to a medical doctor, during the period I was in police custody last Wednesday. It is also the case that apart from the worrying problem (for me) relating to her inability to provide me with any assurance relating to the use of "human rights law" (based the the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights) in my defence, I have no other complaints to make about Sheenagh MacCarthy (Lawyer), who at all times appeared to me to be a very pleasant, and a very easy to get along with type of person.

Before ending this e-mail, I feel I should very briefly mention that the main reason I contacted the guards at Loughrea Garda Station last Wednesday, had to do with the fact that I noticed (last Wednesday morning) that somebody had painted over a fairly large section of one of the front windows of my home (which is at present semi-derelict and unoccupied) in New Inn village. The purpose of the black paint (used on the window) was to cover up a sign which carried the address of one of the www sites I have been using for several years now, and which is called:

It would be much appreciated if you could please provide me with a written explanation as to why Sheenagh MacCarthy (Lawyer referred to above) was unable to let me have any assurance that she could use some of the national and international legislation based on the United Nations Universal Declaration Rights for my defence: having due regard for the fact that, in so far as it is possible for me judge, based on years of my own failed efforts of trying to find a "human rights lawyer" to act on my behalf, the problem has (I strongly suspect) little or nothing to do with Sheenagh MacCarthy personally? My lengthy experience with such matters very strongly suggests that every honest lawyer in the Republic of Ireland, at the present time, would advise me in the same way (more or less) regarding the use of "human rights law" for my defence, that Sheenagh MacCarthy advised me last Wednesday evening: assuming, that is, that I could ever find any Republic of Ireland lawyer who was willing to even discuss the "human rights law" matter with me, in circumstances other than I being in police custody (in the way I was last Wednesday).

I look forward to hearing from you regarding the above-mentioned  "human rights law unavailability problem",   at your earliest convenience please.

Yours sincerely,

William Finnerty.

The Turoe Stone, Celts, First Masters of Europe ...

  "It appears that in the case of the Turoe Stone the pre-Christian Celts raised the strength, sophistication, and complexity of their spiritual abstractions and symbolism to the highest level that they ever used in their stone art; and, in so doing, they may (in a way similar to the later situation regarding the Book of Kells), have given to the world one of the finest examples of abstract stone art ever produced. Of all the decorated stones created by the pre-Christian Celts, the Turoe Stone is by far the best known in the world."

Which of the two  "political systems"  will  "the people"  of the world end up with?






















The Future of Politics and Law in the Internet Age

 (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible."

 "Constitutionalism   is descriptive of a complicated concept, deeply imbedded in historical experience, which subjects the officials who exercise governmental powers to the limitations of a higher law. Constitutionalism proclaims the desirability of the rule of law (based on constitutional law, and laws connected with the Charter of the United Nations, and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights for example)  as opposed to rule by the arbitrary judgment or mere fiat of public officials…. Throughout the literature dealing with modern public law and the foundations of statecraft the central element of the concept of constitutionalism is that in political society government officials are not free to do anything they please in any manner they choose; they are bound to observe both the limitations on power and the procedures which are set out in the supreme, constitutional law of the community. It may therefore be said that the touchstone of constitutionalism is the concept of limited government under a higher law."

Please note that, for technical reasons beyond my control, the dozen or so "Internet Hyperlinks" provided in the "Related Open News Topics" section below will appear as "dead text" in this "Indymedia (Ireland)" comment. However, the original "live working" versions of these hyperlinks can be found (and used) in the edition of the message-text at the www address provided above; and, they were included in this morning's e-mail to the United Nations because, between them, they seem (to me) to provide a pretty good indication/"feel" of just how MASSIVE, VARIED, WIDESPREAD, and DEEPLY ENTRENCHED, the global "government corruption, crime, cover-ups, bullying, and impunity" problem really is at the present time: and, most important of all perhaps, I think they also, as a set, supply a tangible "handle" (of sorts) on the very slimy, very extensive, and often very blurred "DENIAL (genuine and/or pretend) MINDSET PROBLEM", which continues to so powerfully, and frequently INVISIBLY, and often from "way behind the scenes", to "fuel and drive" the whole accelerating global phenomenon of "government corruption, crime, cover-ups, bullying, and impunity". Has anything really changed fundamentally among the arrogant/ignorant/stupid "ruling elites" (i.e. the "human tin-gods" who are trying to "play GOD" and making complete fools of themselves in the process), I often find myself asking myself, since the days (in the 1400s AD) of the "Borgias Pope Family" in Holy Rome: "The Original Crime Family of The Vatican", as they have been labelled by some?'

'A bit like other aspects of the universe itself perhaps, it may be that this particularly nasty MINDSET "type social problem" (as I see it), in very large part a human-brain "software problem" I suspect, which I have long viewed as a major threat for "humanity as a whole", and maybe even for the whole of "Life on Earth" possibly -- when and if the constantly-lurking risk, above and below the surface of the Earth (particularly in the oceans of our World), of "the makings" of a  "Hell on Earth" Thermonuclear World War Three   is taken into account -- is a problem that is half-invisibly expanding outwards (and inwards as well at the same time in its particular case!!) at something approaching the speed of light? Or at least the speed of sound perhaps, and with much of the credit for the "expansion in all directions" due to the bankster owned/controlled MSM (Main Stream Media).'
