Dear Sir / Madam,
I left the Republic of Ireland (where my home is located) because of fear of persecution by the authorities there, and I am at present living in Northern Ireland.
Outline information regarding my legal difficulties in the Republic of Ireland can be found in the text of the July 2nd 2005 e-mail reproduced below to Dr Maurice Manning, who is President of The Irish Human Rights Commission.
Despite my being in receipt during recent months of what I see as very good quality help from Mr Gerard Madden, who is a senior social worker with the Omagh Community Mental Health Team, it seems to me that no practical progress at all is being made by way of I being enabled to justly resolve my legal problems with the Republic of Ireland authorities.
Very recently, and largely because my savings are running out and because I fear becoming destitute, Mr Madden has provided me with information on applying for asylum (under the terms of Article 14.1 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights as set out at Internet page address http://www.un.org/Overview/rights.html ).
Mr Madden has also suggested that, to begin with, I should first seek guidance from your office regarding the matter of I applying for asylum here - and hence this letter to you.
With due regard for the information contained in the email text to Dr Manning reproduced below, and the fact that I do not feel it is at all safe for me to return to my home in the Republic of Ireland, it would be very much appreciated if you could advise me please as to how I might best proceed regarding the matter of I formally seeking asylum here.
Please note that to date I have not received any reply at all from Dr Manning to the e-mail reproduced below, and that this apparently negative response from The Irish Human Rights Commission has now become a source of added concern for me.
Later today I will send you a printed and signed copy of this email through the registered post, which I will address as follows: The Administrator, Law Centre Northern Ireland (Western Area Office), 9 Clarendon Street, Londonderry BT48 7EP.
I would be very grateful if you would reply to me through the address I am using for this e-mail please (i.e. email@example.com ). I would also like you to copy your reply to Mr Madden at his e-mail address provided in the Cc: section above please.
