Dear Media Person,

The e-mail referring to "Complex PTSD" reproduced below to the Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights can also (and perhaps more easily) be viewed at the following Internet page address:

The version of the e-mail at the above address contains Internet "message identification and tracking" information, and language translation facilities.

Some may wish to know that a common symptom of the psychological injury now know as "Complex PTSD" is "explosive anger" - and the thought has crossed my mind that it may be a major factor in the actual explosions associated with suicide bombers (and indeed non-suicide bombers as well)?  

With due regard for the particular form of medical help I am now receiving for Complex PTSD (from Dr McCavert and Mr Madden), and just in case anyone might be starting to get worried, I hasten to add that I most certainly do not feel any inclination whatsoever to involve myself in activities involving explosives of the kind mentioned in the second part of the paragraph immediately above.

Yours sincerely,

William Finnerty.

Dear European Court of Human Rights Registrar,
I would be very grateful if you would please take careful note of the recent written statements concerning my health made by Dr Michael McCavert (GP), and by Mr Gerard Madden (Senior Psychiatric Social Worker) - which are referred to below in connection with a letter dated November 7th 2005 that Mr Madden has sent to the Republic of Ireland Minister for Justice Mr Michael McDowell TD.
Any help which your organisation might be able to provide me with for the purpose of justly resolving the very ugly and worrying social and legal issues represented by the four extracts provided below (from Mr Madden and Dr McCavert) would be much appreciated.
As I trust you will understand, and without wishing to be disrespectful to anyone, it appears to me that the overall size of the "public servant" corruption and bullying problem represented by these four extracts is much too big for any one public servant (such as Justice Minister McDowell for example) to deal with successfully on their own. 
Yours sincerely,
William Finnerty.

Subject: [bullyonline] Complex PTSD & Human Rights Abuses by Public Officials

Dear BOL Members,

The four extracts below relating to Complex PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) are from a letter dated November 7th 2005 to the Minister for Justice in the Republic of Ireland, Mr Michael McDowell TD.

This letter provides clear medical evidence that Complex PTSD can be caused, and is being caused, by public-servants in Western Europe who are abusing human rights law - by bullying, and by other means.

The letter has been written by Senior Psychiatric Social Worker Mr Gerard Madden (Omagh, Northern Ireland), and it contains a "To Whom It May Concern" attachment, dated October 28th 2005, from Dr Michael McCavert (General Practitioner). 

         4 EXTRACTS:

<1>  "On reviewing the depth and range of his symptoms he has got PTSD Complex as a result of all his traumas."  (Statement from Dr McCavert.)

<2>  " ... these traumas and stresses have come at the hands of individuals and public officials and bodies that he has encountered in his struggles to try to correct environmental wrong doings." (Statement from Dr McCavert.)

<3>  "Fundamental principles of Human Rights and justice are at the heart of this matter and indeed, I believe, also your own department."  (Statement from Mr Madden.)

<4>  "His efforts to secure proper legal representation have been thwarted at every turn and Mr Finnerty is firmly of the belief that this situation is a serious breach of his rights under Article 6 (3) (1.b.c.) of the European Convention of Human Rights."  (Statement from Mr Madden.)

For those interested, scanned copies of Mr Madden's letter, together with Dr McCavert's attachment, can be seen at the following address:
