Subject: Extant warrant for arrest
Date: Mon, 29 Nov 2004 21:17:32 -0000

Dear Mr Geraghty,
With reference to your e-mail of April 26th 2004 (copied below), I now wish you to explore the possibility please of amicably resolving the matter of the extant warrant for my arrest.
Please note though that any such amicable settlement would, as far as I am concerned, have to include financial compensation for me in connection with the string of wrongful acts I have been subjected to, or a victim of, during recent years: by public servants acting on behalf of the State.
If, for any reason, it is not possible to resolve this matter amicably through you, then please note that I wish to sue the State in connection with the wrongful acts referred to above; and, that I will be needing legal advice from you (or one of your lawyer colleagues) on how best to proceed with such legal action. 
I do know the State is a juristic person which can be sued for the wrongful acts of its public servants (reference source: "Principles of Irish Law", page 9, Sixth Edition, by barrister Dr Brian Doolan).
I feel I should mention to you that I had a visit this afternoon from Garda Tom Kenny (the local Garda here in New Inn), and though I tried hard to find out what exactly the purpose of his visit was, I am still unclear as to what precisely he wanted of me.  In a vague sort of way, and while trying to TRIVIALISE the whole matter to the fullest extent possible, he seemed to want me to agree to attend court in connection the extant warrant for my arrest on December 8th 2004.  When I pointed out to him that I would need MUCH more notice than that to prepare my legal defence, which I feel HAS to include the EXTREMELY serious set of ongoing wrongful acts being committed by public servants acting on behalf of the State, he seemed to start threatening me: with talk of dire consequences to follow for me if I did not agree, there and then, to attend court on December 8th.  Rightly or otherwise, I suspect he was trying to intimidate me; and, that his visit this afternoon may have something to do with the e-mail I sent yesterday to several Oireachtas Members.  A copy of the e-mail in question can be seen at the following address:
Assuming I'm not arrested beforehand, I intend to send a printed and signed copy of this e-mail to you through the registered post tomorrow.
It would be much appreciated if you could send me a written (and signed) reply to the address provided below regarding the above matters within the coming 14 days please.
Yours sincerely,
William Finnerty.

County Galway.

Dear Mr. Finnerty,
Your email of the 23rd inst addressed to Martin Egan of this Office has been referred to me.
Would you please note that my own email system was giving me trouble for a period of time and therefore i may not have recieved the emails you refer to and have not been able to access them properly in any event.
I have gone through the substance of your letter but unfortuently i am in the middle of a Trial and am starting Galway High Court next week for two further weeks.
Unfortunately i am not in a position to take on further work at this time due to pressure of work and due to one of my Partners being ill for the last number of months.
If you wish me to recommend a Colleague who might be able to look into your Case, either locally or in Dublin, i will be glad to do so, however, i would not be able to at this time, give your Case the time and attention it deserves, and regret same.
If I can be of any help however in referring you to some other Solicitor, I would be glad to do so.
In the meantime, the outstanding matter you have in Loughrea remains extant.
That Warrent is still in existance.
Do you wish me to explore the possibility of the matter being resolved amicably. Please advise me and i will contact the Gardai in that regard.
With regard to your ongoing matter, i would indeed have liked to be able to advsie you in the matter but it is a complicated matter and would require somebody with a particular focus on such issues and somebody with the sufficient time on his or her hands to devote to this matter.

The ┼rhus Convention Agreement
 (3 Main Points)

The ┼rhus Convention establishes a number of rights of the public (citizens and their associations) with regard to the environment. Public authorities (at national, regional or local level) are to contribute to allowing these rights to become effective. The Convention provides for:

  1. The right of everyone to receive environmental information that is held by public authorities (“access to environmental information”). This can include information on the state of the environment, but also on policies or measures taken, or on the state of human health and safety where this can be affected by the state of the environment. Citizens are entitled to obtain this information within one month of the request and without having to say why they require it. In addition, public authorities are obliged, under the Convention, to actively disseminate environmental information in their possession;

  2. The right to participate from an early stage in environmental decision-making. Arrangements are to be made by public authorities to enable citizens and environmental organisations to comment on, for example, proposals for projects affecting the environment, or plans and programmes relating to the environment, these comments to be taken into due account in decision-making, and information to be provided on the final decisions and the reasons for it (“public participation in environmental decision-making”);

  3. The right to challenge, in a court of law, public decisions that have been made without respecting the two aforementioned rights or environmental law in general (“access to justice”).
