Subject: Loughrea District Court hearing on October 9th 2002.
European Parliament reference:
Dear Mr Hamilton,
Thank you for your acknowledgement of
receipt for my letter dated September 21st 2002.
As your acknowledgement letter (dated
September 23rd 2002) makes no reference to the court hearing deferral
I requested in the final paragraph of my letter to you dated September
21st 2002, I assume that you wish the court hearing to go ahead on
October 9th 2002 as scheduled.
The text of my letter to you dated
September 21st 2002 can be seen at either of the following two www
I have now decided to leave Ireland
sometime within the coming seven days, and consequently I will not
(unless I am forced to) be attending the District Court in Loughrea on
October 9th 2002. Even if I am forced to attend, it is not my
intention to say anything: other than refer to my written
correspondence relating to the matter - which I assume the judge will
have been given copies of beforehand. Unless I am informed otherwise,
I will also assume I have a right to remain silent in court.
Also, I do not intend to return to Ireland
unless (and until) such time as the threat of imprisonment
regarding the summons initiated by Mr Hoey (of Galway County
Council) is removed - one way or another.
The big problem for me regarding the
threat of imprisonment is that, as a result of parental alcoholism, I
have suffered from depression since around 1950 (when I was a five
year old child); and, that at one point in fairly recent years, the
depression turned suicidal. I am deeply concerned that a prison
sentence connected with the charge of assault I am now being accused
of would - without ANY doubt in my view - bring on a relapse of that
same suicidal state of mind: probably within a very short period of
In so far as I am aware, there is no cure
(as such) for the psychological damage caused by parental alcoholism.
To the very best of my knowledge (writing as a person who has been
receiving - since 1975 - the best-quality medical treatment for the
condition that I know of), all that people so afflicted can do is to
try to find ways around the psychological damage (as best they can).
Now that I have explained this, I hope I will not be hindered in any
way from doing what I feel is necessary
(within the law) for the purpose of protecting my mental health. As
far as I know, there is nothing to prevent me coming and going as I
please to and from the Republic of Ireland at any time between now and
October 9th 2002 (the date of the court hearing); and I wish to stress
that, given reasonable notice, I am happy to return to Ireland at any
time: provided I have been given good reason to believe (in writing)
that there is no major risk to my mental health.
I feel I should also make it clear that I
will be doing all I can to return to Ireland as soon as I can - even
though I fully realise I may not succeed in achieving this goal.
Rightly or otherwise, it seems to me that the combined forces of big
business, big government, and big profits, are playing a major role in
sustaining the State corruption I have been attempting to challenge
here for the past four years or so; and that those who
benefit from State corruption fully intend to continue acting
"stone-deaf" in regard to everything they do not wish to listen to:
regardless of the legal rights and the valid needs of ordinary
citizens such as myself. It appears to me as though the elitist groups
in question have hi-jacked important areas of the law embedded in our
written Constitution - in such a way that they arrogantly believe they
can break the law themselves (as and when they please), and at the
same time force others to abide by it - just as it suits their own
self-indulgent purposes: STATE CORRUPTION - in other
words. Please be aware that I feel under no legal or moral obligation
whatsoever to go along with ANY of the illegal activities connected
with State corruption; and, quite the opposite, that I feel I have a
personal responsibility (within reason) to be as difficult as I
possibly can be in opposing and disrupting all such behaviour.
Health Minister Micheal Martin T.D. was
informed of the problems with suicidal depression in my family in
Section 12 (page 4) of my letter to him dated July 27th 2000. As has
been related in earlier correspondence (now on some of my Internet
pages), copies of my letter dated July 27th 2000 to Minister Martin
were also sent (in the weeks following July 27th 2000) to a number of
other people which includes: Prime Minister Ahern, President Mary
McAleese, Mr. Kenneth Murphy (Director General of the Law Society of
Ireland), and Dr. Anne Jeffers (Consultant Psychiatrist, Western
In the case of Dr Jeffers, printed copies
of some of my recent e-mails (including the one to you dated September
21st 2002) have been sent to her by hand through my brother and
half-sister and the psychiatric nurse (Mr William Ward) who visits
them every two weeks. Though I have not heard anything from Mr Ward
or Dr Jeffers, I assume nevertheless that they know about the present
set of family difficulties connected with the possibility of I being
imprisoned in connection with Mr Hoey's complaint.
I would like to take this opportunity to
point out that I have still heard nothing from anybody at the European
Union/Parliament in response to the written requests for help I have
sent to them through the registered post during the past several
months. It now seems to me that my registered letters might never
have reached their intended destinations within the various bodies and
institutions of the European Parliament/Union: as a result of some
kind of unlawful activity connected with corruption (of one kind or
another). Consequently, I further believe that this matter should now
be fully investigated by the police, and that a copy of their finished
report should be given to the judge well in advance of he/she hearing
my case. Scanned copies of the relevant Post Office receipts can be
seen on several of my Internet pages - such as (for example) those at
the following location:
I would also like to
point out that I have heard nothing to date from the
police, or from Galway County Council, regarding the information I
requested from them in connection with signs (other than mine) which
Mr Hoey deals with in the course of his work with Galway County
Council. Further information regarding this point can be found in
Section A of my letter to you dated September 21st 2002.
I intend to keep in contact with my
brother and my half-sister while I am away from Ireland, and
consequently the same postal address as before should be used for me
(as given below).
Also, I hope to check for e-mails each day
at my Eircom e-mail address (also provided below).
Mr. William Finnerty.

Albans", New Inn, Ballinasloe, County Galway, Republic of Ireland.
